DIY Madrid Center Sights Walking Tour

Spain, Madrid Guide (B): DIY Madrid Center Sights Walking Tour

Recently I’ve been getting a lot of questions about what to do and see in Madrid, where to go, what to eat, etc. So, instead of retyping or copying and pasting half-assed guides over and over, I’ve decided to design a few posts covering my view on my beloved Madrid that I can refer people to!

The first in my Madrid series will be a DIY walking tour of some of the city’s central sights (and some of my favorites).

There are a few other DIY walking tours online (links below) and even a few free walking tours offered in Madrid, but none of them seemed to cover all of my favorite Madrid sights.

I’m not necessarily a museum person and I usually travel on a pretty strict budget, so if you can relate to those to things, then this tour is for you. If you’re looking for a an in-depth history tour or information about architecture, I’m sorry but you’ve come to the wrong place.

Thankfully, Madrid is a really walkable city, so this tour is completely possible. Everything really is s a lot closer than it may seem. If you didn’t catch it above, depending on your pace and time spent in each place, you should be able to get this done in about 3-4 hours. ......
