The passion of flamenco, the glories of Spanish art and the taste of tantalising tapas: Madrid holidays offer it all

Often overshadowed by Barcelona when it comes to Spanish holiday destinations, Madrid more than holds its own, with its sumptuous museums, innovative eating scene and heated nightlife that’ll have party animals up into the early hours. From the lively LGBT district of Chueca to the stately historic centre, it’s a city that blends old and new, traditional and cutting-edge, and you’ll be kept regularly refuelled throughout your leisurely sightseeing thanks to tapas bars serving up salty Iberico ham, seared octopus and crisp, refreshing Albarino wine. With surprises around every corner – such as the Temple of Debod, an Ancient Egyptian structure which was dismantled and then put back together in this city – Madrid holidays will linger in your memory long after you leave.

Why travel to Madrid with ebookers?

If you’re looking to organise package holidays to Madrid, then ebookers offers a swift, cost-effective tool for putting your Spanish getaway together. You’ll even get up to 15% off if you book Madrid flights and hotels at the same time, which will leave you some more spending money to indulge in the local tapas. In terms of areas to stay in, you could opt for sleek, chic Salamanca, which is known for its high-end fashion boutiques, or head for the colourful and laid-back Chueca district. Anyone with an interest in literature will be beguiled by Las Letras, a district which was once home to some of Spain’s most renowned writers, and which now boasts accommodation ranging from cheap and cheerful hostels to deluxe pads with sweeping rooftop views.

Top things to do in Madrid

Do you have a passion for art? Then you’ll have plenty to do during Madrid holidays. It’s home to 2 of Europe’s grandest museums – the Reina Sofia, which is home to Picasso’s immense anti-war masterpiece Guernica, and the Prado, which showcases Goya’s famed Nude and Clothed Maja paintings, as well as Las Meninas by Velazquez. Once you’ve filled up on this aesthetic feast, you can gorge in a more literal way at the Mercado de San Miguel, where top tapas vendors jostle side by side to serve up tasty tidbits to the hungry crowds. Afterwards, you can get down to some serious people-watching in the Plaza Mayor, the hub of the city filled with stalls and street performers, or have a more genteel afternoon by touring the tapestries and frescoes in the Royal Palace of Madrid.

Getting around in Madrid

You’ll want to do most of your Madrid sightseeing on foot, but you can also simply hop on the metro – which happens to be one of the biggest underground networks in Europe or make use of the local buses. If you’re hungry to explore the towns nearby, you can always hire a car.
