The area around the elegant Paseo del Prado boulevard is much-visited by both locals and tourists. The world-famous Prado, the Reina Sofia, and the Thyssen-Bornemisza museums form a triangle of art and culture that spans this grand and beautiful avenue. On weekdays, the Prado Museum opens its doors for free after-work hours, drawing a diverse and excited queue of art lovers that wraps around the block. Palacio de Cibeles and Círculo de Bellas Artes cultural centers are other artsy hangouts to check out, with rooftop bars that provide impressive views of the city. While the Paseo del Prado and its roundabouts form a busy throughway in Madrid, a broad green pedestrian park in the middle is a calm and gorgeous place for a relaxing stroll. Just east of the museums, the Retiro Park is always a confluence of activity as families and friends of all ages take to the pretty paths and lawns to stretch their legs or to have a picnic.
I have the privilege to have visited the most important museums in the World, from the Louvre to the Hermitage, from Gallerie degli Uffizi to the N.Y Moma and so on. In my humble opinion, as far as PAINTINGS are concerned, the Prado contains the best collections in the world.
I do not include sculptures or archeology, just paintings.... Prado...
The museum is maybe not as big as the Prado, but if you want to see paintings of different periods, it is worth the visit as it houses art from the middel ages till not so long ago.
The museum is not very busy, but expect schoolgroups on weekdays. In my opinion there should be a bit more information on...
Undoubtedly the most important Avenue of Madrid. In reality Paseo de la Castellana is divided in 3 sections: Paseo Del Prado, Paseo de los Recoletos and finally Paseo de Castellana.
Crosses Madrid thru the center and is the home of many beautiful and interesting places. If we consider all 3 sections, we can find Museo Del Prado, Museo Thyssen, Museo...

"Delicious Italian food "
reviewed 3 days ago by Audrina12345
The food is absolutely excellent and the service is wonderful. The restaurant is very cozy with a nice atmosphere. I had the platter as starter and it was really amazing. Salad and pasta were delicious as well.
A wonderful rooftop terrace in the heart of Madrid with excellent views. This establishment is atop a cultural exhibition space and even if you only want to get a drink on the roof you must still buy an entry ticket for 4 euros. There will probably be a line and it is definitely longer as you approach sunset. if you...

The staff went out of their way to...
We stayed in the Petit Palace Lealtad Plaza Hotel for two nights and it was the best stay I have ever had so far. The room was clean and big and sooooooo calm it was just incredible! Also the staff was so friendly and very helpful. The hotel will be my little secret to my friends if they should ever...
Every aspect of service was seamless from check in to dinner to breakfast and check out. the concierges were generally helpful and pleasant. The room was spacious and well appointed. I understand they may go through a renovation soon, and I agree that things could be updated.
My husband and I stayed for 7 nights, originally I concerned about the safety issue, and the daily use items that hotel would provide. But the facts proved that I worried too much. It’s a very convenient location to everywhere in and near Madrid, and you can walk to many attractions. Hotel provided safety box in the room for small...
