    Its lush greenery and tree-lined avenues provide welcome respite from the city's bustle. We enjoyed discovering historical fountains, statues, and buildings throughout the park. The Palacio de Cristal often hosts art exhibitions and cultural events, which adds another interesting dimension. We could easily spend hours here relaxing by the lake or enjoying a picnic lunch. A true gem in the heart of Madrid!

    We had a great time at the Prado, a lot of the artwork is simply stunning. Our baby is just 3.5 months old and she loved all of the art too, it’s a great place for families with good baby changing facilities. We spent a nice few hours strolling around and enjoyed the cafe too, the staff were very kind to us, we would recommend this place for a young family

    We did this tour without a guide but did our research and reading beforehand. 10.30 am slot which I pre-booked 2 weeks ahead meant no ticket queue to enter. We were also able to take lots of photos before the tour bus crowds arrived. The interior is stunning and well worth a visit.

    We visited this museum on a Saturday in April in an off-season period. We were surprised to encounter a rather long queue at the entrance since our guide book said it was one of Madrids best kept secrets. Certainly not a secret anymore. And that is perfectly understandable because after about an hour waiting in line we were admitted entrance and found the museum itself was not crowded and it was a really good experience seeing both the gardens, the paintings and the house itself. We got an excellent impression of the artist, his time, his family and of course his art. Will go back if I get the chance, but next time I'll book a time in advance.
