There’s no better place for a European city break than Madrid – one of our travel experts paid a visit and loved its relaxed vibes, food and beautiful sights.
Our travel advisor stayed in the Petit Palace Hotel Ópera, a centrally located hotel between the Puerto del Sol and Ópera areas:
‘It was a great location and Hotel was amazing. The choice of breakfast was brilliant.’
She also visited some of the major sights:
‘We chilled out in the Plaza Mayor, a popular square with plenty of restaurants to choose from. We had some sangria and watched the crowds.
My favourite part of Madrid was the Mercado de San Miguel a famous food market. You have lots of tapas stand while walking around with a glass of Vino in your hand.
Madrid is known for its parks. How about a romantic boat ride on the lake in El Retiro Park?
The Royal Palace is another beautiful attraction, and of course we visited Santiago Bernabéu Stadium, the home of Real Madrid!’
