Spend three nights exploring the Spanish capital with this summer city break to Madrid.
Madrid is often overlooked for a city break but actually it probably has more to offer than most of it’s European counterparts. Take a guided tour of the Royal Palace, arguably one of the largest and most beautiful palaces in Europe. Enjoy a coffee on the Plaza Mayor, Madrid’s main square, it is a great place to people watch and plan your day. Follow that with a night out in the city, when Madrid comes alive with gastro bars and vibrant nightlife. With over three thousand restaurants, it is not surprising that Madrid is now considered one of Europe’s top cities for gastronomy.
There is plenty of things to do in Madrid to keep everyone happy. As well as sightseeing, Madrid is a great city for shopping. A stroll along the Gran Via, Madrid’s grandest street, is a shoppers paradise, where high street and designer shops combine to tempt you with prices cheaper than at home. The apple store with a 360 degrees genius bar, where experts from ‘Apple’ give advice and solve any technical issues. It is known as a ‘little apple museum’ and worth a look in the area of Puerta del Sol!
Madrid is also famous for it’s soccer team. Football fans may be disappointed that there are no matches scheduled during the summer, but a stadium tour of Real Madrid’s Bernabeu, is a great alternative.
So with all of this and a lot more, isn’t it time you booked a city break to Madrid? I have found a great deal departing on the 8th of July. Fly from Dublin to Madrid and enjoy a three night stay in the popular HRC hotel, for only €184.
