What to do if you only have a day or two?

If you only have a day or two in town, I’ll suggest a walking tour to make the most of your time in Madrid =)

Tip: You can either download the app Madrid offline from Google Maps to guide you using your smart phone or you can just print that route and ask people on the street. They’ll definitely point you the directions. 🙂
