Madrid

Madrid ©
Madrid is known for its cultural and artistic heritage, lively nightlife, and a dynamic culinary scene.
Museum-lovers will get to explore Prado National Museum and Museo del Greco. Monastery of San Juan de los Reyes and Casco Historico de Toledo are good opportunities to explore the local culture. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Madrid: Chorrera de los Litueros (in Somosierra), Bodegas Tierras de Orgaz (in Manzaneque) and Parque Natural Hayedo de Tejera Negra (in Cantalojas). There's still lots to do: steep yourself in history at Cathedral of Avila, wander the streets of Gay Madrid & the Chueca District, admire the landmark architecture of Royal Palace of Madrid, and don't miss a visit to The Four Posts.

To find other places to visit, reviews, maps, and more tourist information, go to the Madrid route site.

Miami, USA to Madrid is an approximately 12-hour flight. The time zone difference when traveling from Miami to Madrid is 6 hours. When traveling from Miami in May, plan for a bit cooler days and much colder nights in Madrid: temperatures range from 75°F by day to 52°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 13th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel to Banos de Rioja.
