Madrid is great! I highly recommend the free walking tours from the Plaza Mayor. The guides are highly entertaining and you learn a lot along the way -they are trying to earn a tip at the end and they deserved it . http://www.neweuropetours.eu/madrid/en/home The Mercado San Miguel is also a great to check out for food - just watch your bags. Go see Prado, Crystal Palace, Parque Retiro, and the Royal palace. The tours take you through these so I recommend starting with the tours. Also, Madrid is rich in its culture for flamaco, you can easy find a place for a tapas and show combo. If you are into clubbing - I was told Kapital is a must see as each level has its own theme
