The capital of Spain, Madrid is a fabulous lively city where you can really chill out, relax and soak up the Spanish charm of this unique city.

Short breaks in Madrid are all about simply enjoying the city centre. And there really are lots of things to enjoy about it! Madrid is a real ‘café culture' city - pull up a chair at a little table and enjoy a cup of coffee while watching the world go by. Although it is a capital city and very vibrant and lively, there is a real laid-back ambience to Madrid.

After you've started your day with a cup of coffee and a spot of people watching, why not indulge in a spot of retail therapy? Madrid is home to a fantastic mix of shops, from high street names to quirky independent shops to the blow the budget designer shops of Salamanca.

One thing you simply must make time for while in Madrid is a trip to the capital's excellent art galleries.

The vast Prado gallery, the Thyssen and the Reinna Sofia are among Europe's best art galleries and well worth a visit.
