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.

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.Recommended for:

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.Recommended for:
