Madrid

There is such a mixture of old and modern that you soon full in love this country and its charming and diverse people. The old traditional bars and restaurants sit well with modern bars and clubs. For the tourist, the ease of travel and finding somewhere to stay and the friendliness of the Spanish people make a trip to Spain a great and unforgettable experience.

When To Go

Spain can be enjoyable any time of year. The ideal months to visit are May, June and September (plus April and October in the south). At these times you can rely on good-to-excellent weather, yet avoid the extreme heat - and the main crush of Spanish and foreign tourists - of July and August. But there's decent weather in some parts of Spain virtually year round. Winter along the southern and southeastern Mediterranean coasts is mild, while in the height of summer you can retreat to the northwest, to beaches or high mountains anywhere to escape excessive heat. The best festivals are mostly concentrated between Semana Santa (the week leading up to Easter Sunday) and September to October.

Madrid

This is truly a European city that does not sleep. The partying goes on through out the night and you are sure to meet new friends and enjoy the many bars and clubs. This city is charming as are the people, who welcome you with great warmth. Madrid may not have the landmark historical sites and in fact has only been relatively recently the capital of Spain, however the beauty of the architecture wins over the tourists and visitors to this magnificent city.

When To Go

As most European cities it is best to avoid the summer months as it tend to get overrun by tourists and the Spanish enjoy taking their annual break in the month of August. For some the famous fiestas are an annoying tradition, but it just adds more charm to the way of life. There are many festivals and events that are a must but can be booked up early, so plan ahead.
