A great place to start your tour of Madrid is with the Museo del Prado, Centro de Arte Reina Sofía and Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza before joining the crowds at the Puerta del Sol ("Gate of the Sun"). The heartbeat of the Spanish capital, Puerto del Sol positively buzzes with public transport, taxis, tourism, shops, cafes and restaurants, and the atmosphere is alive with fun both day and night.

The city has enthusiastically embraced all the creativity and innovation of Spain’s gastronomic revolution and you’ll find everything from rustic, traditional eateries to high end restaurants. From tapas in enchanting temples to sit-down meals beneath centuries-old vaulted ceilings, eating in Madrid is a big part of city life and is a huge pleasure too.
Once you’ve finished tucking in, don’t forget to venture out round the city’s massive collection of sophisticated cocktails bars and thriving clubs. Blend in to the night-time streets of many barrios and you’ll find yourself swept along with the friendly hoards where you can dance away until dawn.
