Madrid City Breaks


Madrid Weekend Breaks

If there is a city that can take away the “City That Never Sleeps” crown from NYC, it’s Madrid. Hundreds of cinemas, theaters, bars, dinners, and clubs are at your service all night, every taste will be catered for. But nightlife is not the only reason to add Madrid to your travel agenda. Despite the fact that city has preserved its historic look, for over half a century, Madrid has been a playground for modern architects in Spain. Already tired of sightseeing? Great, it’s time to hit the museums. After all, Prado, Reina Sofía and Thyssen-Bornemisza museums aren’t called a “Golden triangle of art” for nothing.

Short Breaks to Madrid FAQ

Most travelers will find the capital of Spain a welcome retreat from hauntingly expensive London, Paris, or Berlin. Overall, Spain is considered a mid-range travel destination, so a weekend break to Madrid is a great choice for those traveling on a budget.

Late spring and early autumn are often considered the best times to go to Madrid. Planning a Madrid weekend break off season means no overcrowded sights and museums, no troubles with booking a good hotel, and no need to make peace with the inflated prices. Plus, the weather is great –  warm and inviting – which is perfect for exploring the city on foot. 

Madrid is a treasure trove of amazing sights, which is why we always advise including a city tour with a local guide on your first day. This way, you won’t only be able to admire the famous Plaza Mayor, Kio Towers, Retiro Park, Gran Via, Puerta del Sol, and others, but you will also get a chance to see some hidden gems known only to locals. If you appreciate art, don’t miss a chance to explore what the Golden Triangle of Art has to offer (if you don’t have time to explore all three museums, consider visiting only the Prada museum). And of course, you shouldn’t miss a chance to discover the authentic sounds of Madrid, fiery fado. 

Yes, a three-day Madrid city break is enough to get to know the stunning city. Of course, you won’t be able to see everything there is to see, but you will easily cover the main sights of the Spanish capital, try the local food, and enjoy the vibrant atmosphere of the place.  

Madrid is quite easy to navigate on foot. What is more, a lot of its famous sights are set within walking distance of each other, so sightseeing requires quite a lot of walking in Madrid. But it’s fair to say that the city boasts an excellent public transport network, so even if you want to explore one of the remote districts, you won’t have any trouble getting around. 

Sure. It’s fair to say that Madrid is no stranger to travelers from all over the world, so all places popular among tourists are well adapted to non-Spanish speaking visitors. However, have a translator at hand if you decide to venture off the beaten path, as most Spaniards don’t speak English very well. This is why it’s very important to arrange your sightseeing activities through a trusted partner to avoid surprises upon arrival.
