There are many holidays that may eventually be celebrated on Thursday or Friday during the year, giving us those wonderful “holiday bridges”, which usually offer the opportunity to get rid of the stress and recharge our batteries. The problem with these mini-holidays is that we have to plan a short trip, because we do not have time for a long stay or a holiday. That is why for your holiday apartment for rent Madrid, here at Apartamentos Mayor Centro, we suggest a suitable itinerary for a quick three-day trip to Madrid.
In this simple route, we try to include different aspects of this wonderful city, remembering that it is impossible to ignore the artistic part of this city, which we have already addressed in more detail in this blog.
For the first day, we recommend you start with the classics: first the Thyssen- Bornemisza Museum. We estimate that the visit will take about three hours. In order to take advantage of the sites in the close vicinity, you should continue the first day with the traditional and world-renowned Prado Museum, for which you will also need at least three hours. Then we advise an outdoor walk while you enjoy Madrid’s architectural beauty: a walk through the Puerta del Sol. Finishing the day in a restaurant that offers you the best of Madrid and Spanish cuisine, such as the “Casa Labra”, is an ideal way to round up your first day of a quick tour around our capital city.
On the second day, how about we start with something completely different from the previous day? The proposal is to start at the Retiro Park and enjoy its wonderful gardens. We then go on to the artistic part of the city, with a two-hour visit of the Reina Sofia Museum and we continue with a perfect lunch in the “Arrocería Gala”. We will finish the second day with a flourish tour of the historic center of the city: the Plaza Mayor for which you will need between one and two hours.
For the final day of this quick tour of the most representative places in this city, we suggest you start with an iconic location in Madrid (and indeed, across the country), the Royal Palace of Madrid. As for the second stop, we cannot forget a trip to a place ideal for the amateur photographers, the Catedral de la Almudena, for which you will need about three hours. The ideal way to end your work day or your journey is to enjoy in a gourmet dinner at a prestigious restaurant, such as “The Galayos”, located in the center with internationally recognized paella.
Of course these are just a few key ideas to organize a quick trip to Madrid, but with them, well-structured over three days, you can get an overview of how to set up your own plan for your visit.
