You can ‘do’ Madrid about a million different ways. Be a tourist and see within seconds why visitors do that thing here – the art collections alone are astonishing. Dig into different barrios and pick and choose to suit your mood, from relentless party to Madrileño bourgeois to well-heeled boho or down and dirty. Go completely local at Las Ventas bullring or a Real Madrid home match. Eat anywhere – delicious is the standard. Madrid is one of Europe’s most fascinating and diverse cities, impossible to compare to any other and that suits it just fine.
