Tap into the pulse of Spain at its very core with all inclusive vacations to Madrid. The city of exuberant street festivals, breathtaking bull-fights, and an interminable party spirit, is also where you can enjoy a leisurely afternoon siesta or while away your time at a neighbourhood café over a cheap cup of coffee. The pace of your vacation really depends on you — however fast or slow you want to go, Madrid will keep up effortlessly.
Sports fans visiting for a Real Madrid football match should book their seats as early as possible as last minute tickets will not come cheap. On the other hand, culture aficionados will have it a lot easier with a great deal more to choose from than just Picasso's Guernica. From local Moorish art to the Prado's unmatched international collection, Madrid's museums could easily consume all of your vacation time. But the food and drink here deserve an equal measure of your attention. Large varieties of tapas and an endless supply of cava will have you quickly satiated, but don't give up — there's always another great bar or restaurant around the corner just waiting to be visited.
If sticking to a tight budget is your priority, Madrid vacations are cheapest during the winter months when hotel rates drop by 30-40%. Temperatures hover around freezing and there aren't quite as many people out and about as they are during the rest of the year, but if you're looking for shorter queues at the museums and less waiting time at restaurants, this is the time to go.
Defying all logic, most visitors choose to book vacations to Madrid in the summertime, when temperatures are searing in the 30s (Celsius) and lots of locals close down their restaurants and shops to go off on vacations of their own. Cheap last minute deals might be available in July or August, but booking in advance is always the safest bet if this is when you want to travel.
Alternatively, plan a trip between September and November or from March to May when the weather is pleasant and there are a great deal of festivals and events to be enjoyed outdoors. Remember to check for major events like Premier League football matches being held in the city during your vacation as flights and hotels get a lot more expensive around these times.
