Your trip to Spain is all about Madrid, the Spanish capital and one of the few cities in the world that truly deserves the label “vibrant.” In the past, the city was home to royalty and artists, and today it remains home to some of the best nightclubs, bars, and restaurants the world over. During your time in Madrid, you’ll choose from two Hop-On Hop-Off bus tour itineraries that give you incredible access to the city and come with audio commentary and a city map. The Blue Route is perfect for Madrid first-timers, taking you to Gran Via, Plaza Mayor, Puerta del Sol, and the famous art gallery trio of Museo Reina Sofia, which houses Picasso’s Guernica, the enormous Museo del Prado, and Museo Thyssen. The Green Route includes the museum of natural sciences, Puerta del Sol, Museo Esculturas, and the city’s superb archaeological museum. The next day, a sightseeing tour takes you to Retiro Park and the Bullring, Plaza de Colon, and the Royal Palace, where you’ll skip the line to access the 18th-century palace and see its many historical treasures.

At the end of your time in Madrid, head to the airport to continue your onward journey.
