Things to do in Madrid 

1.    Begin your break in Madrid by getting to know this fantastic capital city on foot. Take a walk around Plaza Mayor, Spain's most famous square, and the busy hub of Puerta del Sol. And don't miss a wander down Gran Via, Madrid's famous boulevard and the centre of its nightlife.

2.    The huge Royal Palace (Palacio Real) is one of the biggest in Europe and is still the official residence for the Spanish royal family, though they do not live here. Learn more about its architecture and art collection on a guided or self-guided tour.

3.    Madrid is an art lover's paradise, with some of the world's best museums and galleries. Museo Nacional del Prado boasts works by Goya, Valazquez, Titian and Caravaggio, while Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza has paintings by Picasso, Degas and Van Gogh. There are several more first-rate museums to explore, so allocate a few days for this in your itinerary.

4.    Want to see a spot of Ancient Egypt in Madrid? Head to the west of the city to see the Debod Temple, a gift given to Spain by Egypt in the 1960s after the country helped save important temples from flooding.

5.    Flamenco might seem like a Spanish stereotype but real flamenco performances offer passionate insight into Spain's cultural heritage. Head to a tablao like Casa Patas to experience the bewitching toque (guitar), baile (dance) and cante (song) of flamenco.

6.    Turn another cliché on its head and head to Las Ventas Bullring, the home of Spanish bullfighting. The bullfighting season runs from March to October.

7.    Take a break from the hustle and bustle of the big city in El Retiro, Madrid's main park, and the mesmerising Botanic Gardens.

10.  Take a day trip to El Escorial, the historic palace complex in San Lorenzo de El Escorial. The historic residence of the King of Spain, this palace welcomes over half a million visitors every year.
