A week in is barely enough to scratch the surface of this wonderful city, never mind a day in Madrid! It is however possible to get a sense of its magnificence in 24 hours or less. Madrid is one of our favourite places in Spain, and we have had the good fortune to visit a few times. Here is a guide on how to spend a day in Madrid.
Madrid is also the gateway to many of our travel destinations like Japan or the Maldives. Valencia, our current home base, has a small airport, so a lot of the international flights depart from Madrid, meaning we either have to fly or take the train there. Here is a day in Madrid itinerary when you’re short on time but still want to see the best.
