Plan Your Trip to Madrid
Planning a trip to Madrid can be an exciting as well as a challenging affair for most visitors. How many days you spend in Madrid really depends on what else you have planned for the rest of your Spain trip. Many locals will say that even a week is not enough to experience the vibe and pulse of the city. But not all of us have that much time.
Planning a rewarding trip is also dependent on your interests - you have to decide how many days to spend and there is always an itinerary that can be made to work for you.
Madrid is of course most famous for its museums and royalty. There are endless museums in Madrid and it is impossible to see all of them - more than 30 - on one trip even with the useful Madrid museum pass
. So you should pick and choose the right museums for you based on your interest.
Amongst the Royal sites of Madrid, you will certainly see the Royal Palace and if you plan your Madrid visit well you may be able to see the changing of the guard and the lit up palace, all in one day, in addition to the tour.
And don’t forget, no trip to Madrid is complete without planning a day trip to one or more of the exciting destinations around Madrid
. Toledo, Segovia, Avila, Salamanca….all are rich day trip destinations from Madrid within easy reach by public transport.
