Self-Guided Walking Tours to Explore Madrid Spain on Foot

Welcome to Madrid, the stunning metropolis where tourists and locals mix freely to enjoy nearly all that Spain is famous for: wine, food, fashion, arts, nature – you name it! Our two introduction walks (Walk I + Walk II) will take first-time visitors to the most essential sights. Make sure not to miss a stroll through beautiful Buen Retiro Park, either, and save some time for Hemingway's Madrid to retrace the famous writer's footsteps in the city he loved. It's hard to have a bad meal here, and the special Food Tour will enlighten you as to what makes the local food & bar scene unique.

In all, we have prepared 14 self-guided walks for you to explore Madrid, which cover everything from charming neighborhoods to world-class museums, nightlife venues and shopping opportunities. Not only that, but you can also create your own walk with the attractions that interest you most and even set your hotel as the walk's starting point!

How it works: Download the app "GPSmyCity: Walks in 1K+ Cities" from iTunes App Store or Google Play to your mobile phone or tablet. Each walk comes with a detailed tour map as well as photos and background information for the featured attractions. The app's navigation functions guide you from one attraction to the next. The app works offline, so no data plan is needed when traveling abroad.
