Madrid is Spains capital and offers a wealth of adventures for visiting families. It may not be Spain`s prettiest city but there is a vibrancy and excitement like no other. Many believe that Madrid is a city to experience rather than simply see. Escape the hussle & bustle of the city by taking refuge in the beautiful Retiro park, find a hidden tapas bar, catch a musical, go to the zoo or Aquarium or take take a day-strip to Toledo, El Escorial or visit the fairy-tale castle of Segovia. Dont forget, as the city is 700 metres above sea level, its cimate is extreme. The winter can be bitterly cold and the summers unbearable in the heat, so the best time to visit is either the Spring or Autumn.
