It’s one of the top things to do in Madrid. Very well organised, a tour with the headphones provided really gives you an insight into the history of Madrid and Spain

You will find this historic palace as interesting as almost other royal palaces in Europe. Although huge portion of the palace is restricted to the public but it is still very interesting to visit. It took us around 2 hours to see the palace and...More

Nice, some very good Tapas places particularly Los Gaylos. The pork belly was the best I ever had. Great deserts too.

This is the biggest palace in Western Europe and is definitely worth a visit if you're in the Spanish capital. The entrance is easy and fast, no need to wait too much. The basic ticket, for 10 Euros, covers most of the important elements and...More

Excellent monument to visit. This place requires whole day. I really thought a dedicated place to sit and pause during the visit is needed.

The palace will take you to a tour through the history of the Spanish history. Amazing place, well organized, bank for baby strollers, very cheap ticket comparing with the value gained. Really, you should not visit Madrid without spending a visit to the palace

This was on our itinerary, but they closed it for about 15 days. We were told the Portuguese ruler was visiting. Would have been nice to have some advanced notice of this.

The Royal Palace was very interesting and the tour we did was very informative. It is a beautiful palace but make sure you book entry as queues are very long to enter otherwise. Beautiful grounds and parks nearby.

No, your not allowed to bring drinks or snacks. Neither are you allowed to take pictures. But great English books with pictures I would never be able to take 😊

I didn't go in during the "free evening hours" so I couldn't tell you when or how that would be. You can research on its website for info. I would imagine it has much bigger crowds. The entrance fee was 11 euros, which is... More
