If you have three days in Madrid, the first two days are best spent actively exploring Madrid's rich cultural and historic offerings - our two-day itinerary will help you plan your stay! And of course, by the time you are done with the main touristic highlights, you will have a good idea of what you like in the Spanish city and what you would rather avoid on your third day. Shopping, dining and going out to explore bars appeals to almost any visitor to Madrid, and while we won't impede your exploration of vibrant contemporary offerings, we have two more suggestions for your third day in the capital.
If you are even a tiny bit a football (soccer) fan and especially if you have children, a visit to Santiago BernabГ©u, the Real Madrid FC stadium, may become one of the highlights of your trip. The tour around the stadium includes a comprehensive and interactive museum tour, as well as a visit to changing rooms of players and the field itself. Just like a tour around the Camp Nou stadium in Barcelona, this one is not to be missed.
Spain is well-known as the bullfighting nation, and nowhere is this controversial love so apparent as in Madrid. If you have tickets to a major bullfighting event, chances are it will take place at Las Ventas Bullring. Even if you are ticketless, there are tours that will take you inside for only 9в‚¬, and it goes without saying that its beautiful facade is well worth seeing from the outside.
