Vacationing in Madrid should definitely be on your Bucket List, as it is one of the most amazing experiences in the world. Even if you aren’t much of a travel enthusiast, visiting this beautiful place at least once is a must. The city embraces you with open arms, and people here warm, friendly and welcoming.
