Been to Madrid before?



Description:

Once you've seen the most popular museums and architecture in Madrid, take time to explore the less frequented gems. Besides the big museums and small private art galleries, there are several exhibition venues spread out about town that are worth a visit, and they often have no or insignificant entrance fees.

Day 1 - Madrid


While the Gran Vía seems like an exhibition itself with flocks of people swarming in and out of shops and theaters, it's where you'll find the Museo de Telefónica, which displays both telephone history and intriguing temporary shows. The Círculo de Bellas Artes has an elegant cafe, a bookshop, several small exhibit rooms, a theater, and a cinema that shows monthly themed cycles. For more classical art in a smaller space than the Prado, find the Real Academia de Bellas Artes de San Fernando near the Puerta de Sol. When you're cultured out, enjoy a tablecloth meal for a paper napkin price at Finca de Susana

Day 2 - Madrid


Start your day in the morning light of the works of Joaquín Sorolla. Stroll along the beach on canvas, and enjoy this charming house museum and gardens. Walk out onto the Paseo de la Castellana, and cross to the Museo de Escultura al Aire Libre. You can take the public bus number 27, walk, or taxi up to the Torres Kio in the Plaza de Castilla, passing by the Torre de Picasso and the Real Madrid soccer stadium Santiago Bernabéu. If you are into "futból" the stadium is worth checking out. From Plaza de Castilla you can easily metro back to la Puerta del Sol which is near your hotel Room Mate Alicia and Casa Patas for your evening dinner and flamenco show.

Day 3 - Madrid


Rediscover the Americas and the Spanish navigators. Take a voyage through history setting sail at the Museo Naval in order to understand some of the technical parts of the journeys. Wave to Christopher Columbus in the Plaza de Colón before lunch. One option for eats, with all this talk of America, is burgers at Alfredo's Barbacoa, which also has a restaurant on Calle Lagasca 5 near the Retiro Metro stop. Another option is to make for the Plaza de España-Conde Duque neighborhood to have Thai food at Siam or one of the other worldly restaurants like Mughul, an Indian restaurant at number 10, on the same street San Bernardino. If you have time, pop in the Cuartel del Conde Duque to catch one of their small usually free exhibits, or go directly to the Museo de América in the Moncloa neighborhood to see the social and cultural implications of the early explorations. If you're feeling up to it, ascend the Faro de Moncloa for views of the city. After so much traveling, you'll probably want to eat near your hotel tonight. Try the vegetarian Artemisa, or the tapas scene on Plaza Santa Ana.
