There are museums, architectural feats (both contemporary and historic), great food, a buzzing nightlife and some of the friendliest people you can meet. There is no better city to walk around in. You’ll pass by tapas bars that smell appetizing at nearly any time of the day, an abundance of street performers ranging from solo violinists to full rock bands, and more greenery than you’d ever expect to find in such a busy city. Madrid just so happens to have the most trees and green space per citizen than any other European city. All of this in a city with some of the most impressive pieces of architecture a tourist can see, such as the sprawling Royal Palace of Madrid made of dazzling granite and limestone. Be warned: there’s nothing quite like Madrid’s nightlife. If you think your jet lag is bad by itself, try pairing that with some of Madrid’s nightclubs that are opened until 6am. Maybe pair that with an Advil the next morning too.
