And then there’s Madrid at night. No one can leave the city without paying a visit to a loud and crowded Spanish bar for a beer and some tapas. If peace and quiet is what you are after, head over to the La Latina neighbourhood, for an authentic paella or perhaps some gallinejas, a standard Madrid dish of fried lamb.
Football enthusiasts might want to visit the Santiago Bernabéu stadium of local heroes Real Madrid, or the Wanda Metropolitano stadium for their adversaries in Atlético Madrid. The historic main street Gran Vía is ideal for shopping and a variety of entertainment including theatre and cinema. And should you wish to be in tune with the locals, take a Sunday tour to the El Rastro flea market which Madrileños have been frequenting for decades.
