Things to Do in Madrid in One Day
Madrid could be a one-size fits all destination. Food lover? Art lover? Sports fanatic? Whatever it is that strikes your fancy, here is a list of some things to do that are possible to achieve in just one day alone.
One definite should be Plaza Mayor. What used to be a mecca for bull-fighting now hosts some of the greatest soccer matches you’ll probably ever see. Aside from the talent the country is know, it also won the latest World Cup tournament.
Food is one of the finer things that Madrid has to offer, what is better than some tapas and wine, right? Well if you’re looking to enjoy those things without spending too much money, there are many discreet sidewalk cafes that have some delicious Tapas.
Art lovers can rejoice while you’re stuffing your face too! Take a trip over to the El Prado Museum. There is a wide variety of artistic offerings at the museum, including the works of Goya.
If art can’t fill the void left in your soul, maybe some good old fashioned shopping can! Puerta de Sol is the perfect space to get some affordable, quick, shopping done. One final stop on your one day extravaganza through Madrid should be a trip over to Mercado de San Miguel.
It’s the perfect place to wrap your day up. You can indulge in some treats, do some shopping or relax and have a drink.
