Madrid, Spain

Madrid is known for its cultural and artistic heritage, lively nightlife, and a dynamic culinary scene.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Plaza de Toros de Las Ventas and Catedral de Santa Maria de Siguenza. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Wine Tours & Tastings and The Walls of Avila. Explore Madrid's surroundings by going to Avila (Real Monasterio de Santo Tomas, Cathedral of Avila, &more), Toledo (Puerta de Bisagra, Jewish Quarter, &more) and Siguenza (Castle of Siguenza, Church of Santiago, &more). There's still lots to do: savor the flavors at Food & Drink, walk around Plaza de Santa Ana, indulge in some personalized pampering at some of the best spas, and appreciate the history behind Plaza de Cibeles.
