  • Madrid has the most incredibly gorgeous fountains, parks and architecture. Super safe to walk around at all times of day. Evenings are incredibly busy with people, the social mingling is integral to the culture... so pre dinner time social, lingering dinners, coffee... mean streets are packed with folks happy to be sharing life. Many fabulous museums, and just being surrounded by the historical buildings and statues and fountains everywhere was overwhelming! We loved Madrid! Restaurants are safely clean and food is diverse. Servers are very patient with non-Spanish speakers. Go and enjoy the rich life, history, and safe streets unlike any city in the US.
  • It was one of the spots I truly wanted to visit. My travel friends an I just went out for sightseeing during a winter night, the weather was great so we really enjoyed it. It was wonderful as I imagined.
