A Road Trip Out of Madrid
Madrid has a lot of nearby attractions you can visit, which makes a road trip the best way to enjoy them. Upon arriving in Madrid, you can easily get a car and plan the perfect road trip according to the length of your stay. A car will also help you get around Madrid easily; it’s often cheaper than relying on taxis and public transport too!
Toledo and Segovia are always nice to visit and should be part of the road trip. You can also take the time to visit the Church of San Bernabe in El Escorial. It is a serene place that makes a great stop for those of you who love to enjoy the ambience and the surrounding scenery.
Driving in Spain is very safe, but you do need a valid driving license and not just a provisional one. Be sure to use resources like Toptests to help you pass your driving test before the trip so that you can have an awesome road trip out of Madrid.
A Culinary Adventure
Madrid is filled with great restaurants and amazing dishes to try, which makes a culinary adventure the perfect way to enjoy the city. Instead of just going to museums and attractions, you can spend your days in Madrid trying some of the best restaurants and having a lovely time.
Botín is definitely among the first restaurants to try when you’re in Madrid. It is the oldest restaurant in the world, dating back to 1725. The place serves great dishes, buttwo you definitely need to try are the roast lamb and suckling pig. It will be the meal of a lifetime, especially with the place’s unique ambience.
Café Murillo is also an interesting place to visit, especially if you’ve been exploring the Museo del Prado. The café is situated right behind the museum and offers light bites and great coffee. The pizzetas are highly recommended.
Sunset at Templo de Debor
The Templo de Debor or Temple of Debod is an ancient Egyptian temple. It was
dismantled and then rebuilt in Madrid. Today, it is one of the most beautiful places to visit during sunset. If you’re not in the mood for holiday adventures, the Temple of Debod is the perfect place to just sit down and enjoy the spectacular colours.
Watch as the sun goes down right behind the temple. It is a majestic sight nonetheless, not only because the temple is beautiful, but also because the surrounding landscape is just as gorgeous. Don’t forget to take pictures too; you’ll want to share the amazing experience with colleagues and relatives back home.
