Madrid is an exciting city with a lot to offer. So, if you come to visit for 3 days, you may wonder what is worth visiting and how to make the most of your trip. In this post we propose a small itinerary so you don't miss anything. Let's get started!


Day 1

Catedral de Almudena

Start your first day in the best way: having a typical breakfast of churros with chocolate at the emblematic Chocolatería San Ginés. Afterwards, take advantage of being in the center to visit the Royal Palace, which has a history dating back to the eighteenth century. Very close to this building is the Almudena Cathedral, and admission is free.

Later, don't forget to visit the classic Plaza Mayor, where you will experience the authentic atmosphere of Madrid. It is also the ideal place to have a beer on a terrace and try some tapas.

On the other hand, if you are looking for a plan to enjoy with the family, do not miss the Casita Museo del Ratón Perez, located very close to this square.

In the afternoon, you can stroll through Chueca and explore the streets of the colorful neighborhood of Malasaña, enjoy the sunset at the Temple of Debod and end your day with a dinner at the famous San Miguel Market, one of the most important gastronomic spots in Madrid.

Of course, if you want to party, we recommend going to the Puerta del Sol area.


Day 2

For the second day of your trip we recommend you to discover the culture and art of Madrid. Here you will find some of the most valuable museums in the world, such as the Museo Nacional del Prado, home of the painting "Las Meninas" by Velázquez or the Museo Reina Sofía, where you can see the very important "Guernica" by Picasso.

Likewise, the National Museum of Natural Sciences is another great choice if you are traveling with children.

Next, you can not miss the wonderful Retiro Park, one of the green lungs of Madrid. It is an ideal place to stroll, go boating, have a picnic or enjoy spectacular views from its viewpoint. The Palacio de Cristal, located in the same park, is also a must-see. At the end, head to the Plaza de Cibeles, where you can see the magnificent fountain and the City Hall of Madrid.


Day 3

To end your visit in Madrid, it is a good idea to enjoy the street art of the city walking through the neighborhoods of Lavapies and La Latina, also paying attention to its charming local stores and bars, where you can always taste a classic calamari sandwich. Likewise, there are many companies that offer tours for the whole family, where you will learn about the history of Madrid in a fun and entertaining way. Finally, we recommend you to go to a Flamenco show or any of the plays that are playing in the city. The Lion King musical, for example, is one of the most famous, and is performed at the Teatro Lope de Vega, on Gran Vía.
