This city is super cosmopolitan, with easy peasy public transport. Definitely try to see some flamenco while you are there. The Prado is a world class art museum, not to be missed.

Easy to navigate with their excellent subways, beautiful green space, lots of things to see and do (many of them free), very fun and friendly locals all combined to make this city at least of 4 star. Will return to see it it merits even more.

Madrid is a town in the Barcelona province of Spain. Not long ago, agriculture was the main occupation of people in Madrid. But, now the town has transformed itself into an industrially advanced center. At the same time, Madrid is also known for its most pleasant weather and for areas that are rich in vegetation and natural beauty.

If there is one thing I can impart to you about Madrid it would be DON'T DRIVE MADRID! I enjoyed the city, but I didn't enjoy driving in the city. It's much worse than anything I have experienced in Europe or the in the States. And watch out for the cabbies, they're a very dangerous lot, with their peddle to the metal being their motto.

Madrid was a short (2 day) stop on our way to Barcelona. I mainly wanted to go there because my favorite painting in the world is in the Prado, but I wound up REALLY loving this city and would love to go back for a longer stay.

Some travelers skip over Madrid, Spain's cosmopolitan capital city, but I found it refreshingly real and down-to-earth after visiting some of the country's more touristy destinations like the Costa del Sol and Barcelona. There are plenty of museums, art galleries and excellent traditional and modern restaurants to keep you busy for at least a few days, if not an entire week.

In recent years, Madrid Pride has become one of the biggest in Europe with an estimated 1.5 million participants. We’re the best economic stimulus package that country could ask for so grab your credit cards and spend those euros. Pride is July 3-7; info: http://www.orgullogaymadrid.com/
Insider tip: The gay section is known as Chueca, which is conveniently the center of Madrid. It’s convenient to most Gay Pride venues by subway so it’s the perfect place to base yourself.
Recommended venue: Check out Supermartxe at Fabrik, a party and venue that you mustn’t miss. You’ll see the hottest guys (and many hot women) from throughout Europe and from around the world. http://www.nighttours.com/madrid/gayguide/supermartxe.htmlRecommended for:LGBT

Madrid is a compact capital city. That's not to say it doesn't seem like one - it's very stately - but it's considerably more walkable than London, Paris etc.
It's also very charming, with a more mature / less hedonistic atmosphere than that of Barcelona. Great architecture, great restaurants, lots of culture = well worth a trip.
