Day 1 - Madrid


Head to the Mercado Fuencarral to update your wardrobe at the cool alternative mall and then check out the shops and people along Fuencarral Street. When you get hungry, feast on a selection of small sandwiches at Cervecería 100 Montaditos. At night hang out and have a beer at La Vía Láctea – the rockabilly bar that oozes personality and “Movida” history. But before you go home for the night, head over to Chocolatería San Ginés for a late night/early morning sugar high in the form of churros con chocolate.

Day 2 - Madrid


Drink a café con leche while you read the Sunday paper at the classic Café Comercial. Spend the afternoon at Retiro Park strolling along the manicured paths, rowboating, or participating in a drum circle. Then relax and fortify yourself for the week with a glass of vermouth at Taberna Ángel Sierra.
