A long weekend in Madrid

In may, Madrid is in the spotlight at ebookers.ch, with the auction of travel ebookers. Ebookers travel auction principle is simple: you determine the price of your holiday. You set the amount you're willing to pay, and you can choose among bids for all holidays or individual auctions as auction hotel or flight. The starting price of the city for two stays and plane tickets is fixed to a franc only. Auction extend over seven days and the highest bidder wins at the end of this period.

13-May 20, 2013, you can bet for 2 plane tickets with Iberia Geneva - Madrid + a two nights stay at the hotel Innside Madrid Genova * of 20 August to 14 December 2013.

To make you want to participate in this auction and fly you to Madrid this spring, here are some suggestions for visiting the Spanish capital in a few days.

Madrid is a fantastic destination for art lovers, with the most prestigious museums in the world. Close to the Paseo del Prado, the main boulevard in Madrid, are three of the most prestigious art galleries in the world. Spend at least half a day!

If you visit only one Museum, I recommend the Reina Sofia Museum national Spanish of modern and contemporary art that covers the period from 1900 to the present day. Until September 2, 2013, you can visit an exhibition devoted to Dali: poetic suggestions and the possibilities of plastic. You'll necessarily stop before Guernica, the famous painting by Picasso.

The Prado Museum presents mainly European paintings (Flemish, Spanish, French, Italian and German) of the 14th century at the beginning of the 19th century, collected by the Habsburgs and the Bourbons.
Prepare your visit for you through the Prado Guide to download on your smartphone or tablet.

As the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum contains one of the most important collections of art in the 20th century, dedicated to the European art of 1290 to pop art. It is, essentially, paintings and marble sculptures commissioned by August Thyssen to Auguste Rodin also. In summer 2013, we can admire the works of the Impressionist painter Pissarro.

The Palacio Real, the Royal Palace, perhaps the building to visit absolutely! Admirable and impressive building, you can admire both its facade as its interior. It was the official residence of the Kings of Spain, but the current monarch is not. An audio guide is useful to better appreciate it. Count at least 1½ hours to make the round without too much run!

When heat invades the city, you will enjoy this oasis of freshness that represent the historical Park del Buen Retiro (good retirement) gardens between two visits to museums!

Amateurs of foot in your family? Choose your dates of stay, for a chance to attend a Real Madrid match! Do you take photo in the grandiose stage of Real, you'll be the envy of your friends!

You like to dance? Attend the flamenco España baila flamenco show 2013
given by the Ballet Flamenco de Madrid at Teatro Muñoz Seca, a nice evening in perspective.

Obligatory in at least a bar to tapas, you'll be spoilt for choice! Go to the Cava Baja Street, which is the street of Madrid where the restaurants and bar to tapas. How to choose? Enter in the place that you think is the most welcoming, trust the opinions of consumers on Tripadvisor or see places mentioned by Tapas Talk that can be found on this map.  Pass a bar to another to feel the atmosphere of Madrid, on Saturday night, it is madness!

Madrid is famous worldwide for its night life: theatres, musicals, flamenco tablaos, bars and discotheques where you can dance until the morning. The agenda of concerts and displays of the theaters are so provided that everyone can find a show to his liking.

Fashionable, the terrace over the roofs of hotels, transformed into chill-out Cafe more trends, with city views. What spend good romantic evenings sipping his favourite drink!
