Take a Trip To Madrid

With its numerous historical sites, world-renowned art museums and delicious restaurants, Madrid is a great place to visit for travelers.

Visitors can stop at the Prado Museum with its collection from the Spanish, Italian and Flemish schools of art. It's a great spot to glimpse into the history of Western art and culture. The Las Ventas Bullring is another venue that tourists will find intriguing. Known as one of the premier bill fighting locations in the world, Las Ventas offers visitors a tour of the stables, as well as the chapel where the matadors pray before entering the ring. You can start your adventure by booking your trip at Orbitz.com.

Best time to take a vacation to Madrid

  • When planning your vacation to Madrid, try to visit in May or October. Temperatures during both months average around 61 degrees Fahrenheit, making it a nice contrast to the hotter months of July and August. For those planning a trip regardless of the temperature, the month of July sees the beginning of Veranos de la Vino. A live arts and music festival, Vernaos de la Vino sees several big name musicians perform in front of huge crowds, along with a number of open air flamenco shows for those looking for a bit of local artistry. August is the quietest month in Madrid since most residents go on vacation during this time. Be sure to make your reservations on Orbitz.com for your upcoming Madrid getaway.
