There are some cities that encourage you to sit back and relax but in Madrid you’ll probably be far too busy dancing. Alive with passion and excitement, a valentine’s weekend in Madrid is sure to bring out your sensuous side.
See the sights
There is so much to do and so much to see in this city that you may be overwhelmed. So plan it before you go, and make sure that you don’t miss out on a trip to the Royal Palace, Western Europe’s largest Royal Palace. Madrid’s Cathedral and the Egyptian temple, ‘Templo de Debod’, are also worth a visit.
If you’re a sports fan then Real Madrid is a must-see and a trip that will ensure that your boyfriend appreciates you for the entire weekend in Madrid. Bull fighting is also still a popular sport in Spain, if you have the stomach for it!
Pre-drinks at the hotel
Book a hotel in the centre of the city if you want to make the most of your time. There are hundreds of cheap hotels in Madrid so you are sure to be able to find one that’s central and able to offer a platform for partying. Try the Best Western Atlantico, the Vincci Capitol or the Husa Princesa, all close to the best party spots and all with their own restaurants and bars.
Luckily many airlines have catered for Brits’ love of Spain and offer very reasonably priced flights to Madrid all year round. If you’ve got time to stay longer than a week and fancy exploring the outskirts of the city then why not try car hire in Madrid, also now very good value for money.
