The Best 3-Day Madrid Itinerary for first-timers (updated for 2023)

Madrid was the last stop on our first Europe trip, and what better place to have the closing ceremony to our dream extravaganza than the Spanish capital itself? Our Madrid itinerary for 3 days was packed with unique Spanish experiences.

So, I bring to you the perfect 3 days in Madrid itinerary. Skip the Toledo day trip and you have all you need for a 2-day Madrid itinerary as well.

Many people told us that there is nothing to do beyond the palace, well what can I say? Either their expectations are way beyond my humble standards or maybe they didn’t know what to explore.

Outstanding architecture, great museums, idyllic parks, and some amazing day trip destinations – Madrid has it all. So go through our Madrid itinerary and decide for yourself.

Madrid in 2 Days – Day 1 itinerary

Plan: Madrid Palace, Almudena Cathedral, Royal Monastery, West Park, Temple of Debod, Plaza de Mayor

This is what we covered on day 1 after we left our hotel at 4 pm. Did someone say there is nothing to see in Madrid in 2 days? We honestly didn’t love the hotel as much as the others in Europe as you might have read in our Euro-trip review.
What we loved, as usual, was the helpful staff at IBIS and the location. It stands near the metro station with some open-air eateries nearby and the much-needed Carrefour for the budget-conscious travelers.
We had bought a 3-day transport pass from Madrid central railway station which made our intra-city transport free.
I highly recommend taking a free walking tour of Madrid on the first day/

Madrid Palace – Day 1 in Madrid

Madrid Itinerary Day 1 - Royal Palace of Madrid
We took a metro to Opera Station from where Madrid Palace is just a 5-minutes-walk. All other places we had on our list for the day were at walking distance from here.
Spanning 135,000 square meters with 3418 rooms, Madrid Palace is the largest palace in the world. It is the official residence of the royal family, although is now used only for ceremonial purposes.
The palace was love at first sight – the pristine white building with a vast courtyard overlooking the countryside and the mountains located far away is.
The entry ticket starts from 11 Euros but I recommend a guided tour that you can book at 15 Euros ($16.5) only!
The Royal Palace of Madrid, called Palacio Real in Spanish replaced the medieval Alcazar which was burnt to dust in the 18th century. It was built over 100 years by the four architects, Filippo Juvarra being the first. King Charles III was the first to reside in this architectural marvel.
We did buy a ticket and enter the palace, and while we witnessed the grandeur of the monument inside, we wondered how much of the wealth must have come from the former colonies. Well, we don’t know the answer, but what exists now is an unbelievable spectacle.
We walked into the ornate halls, the lavish dining rooms, the throne room, and the other residential areas. Photography is prohibited inside many of the private rooms so I can share only those which we were allowed to take.
Outside Madrid Palace

A travelogue of Madrid won’t be complete without the mention of these fabulous musicians who are kind enough to entertain us for free, near the Palace, at the public squares, and at the metro stations.

Almudena Cathedral 

Almudena Cathedral Madrid

Right across the grand palace stands the Cathedral of the Virgin of Almudena, the Catholic church of Spain. When the capital of Spain was transferred from Toledo to Madrid in the 16th century, the seat of the Catholic Church still remained in Toledo.
Although the plans of this church in Madrid were in place since then, the expansion and administration of the Spanish Empire were prioritized, and the construction of the Cathedral finally began in 1879 (Source).
While entry to the church is free, you are expected to drop a minimum of 1 Euro per person in the donation box. There’s no reason to miss this picturesque temple (yes, it was referred to as a temple on the board near the donation box) when you are at the Madrid Palace.

Royal Monastery of Incarnation

Founded by the Queen of Austria, this was built adjacent to the former Alcazar (now the Royal Palace). It had a passageway only for the Royals directly connecting to the palace. A part of the monastery is now an art museum, and the other part is a beautiful Baroque church.
It is an 8-minute walk from the palace. Well, if you have taken a tour inside the entire palace, by this time you would have already walked long enough for sore feet.
As much as we love architecture, you may understand that on our last lap of the Europe trip, by now we were done with art museums and churches, so we went directly to the West Park.

West Park and the Temple of Debod

Egyptian Temple of Debod - Madrid


West Park, about 2.5 km from the palace is not just the most charming park I have seen, but also historically significant. Spanning over 100 hectares, the park is dotted with events of history.
The trenches and bunkers made during the Spanish Civil War and the site of the two-day siege of the military barracks on 18-20 July 1936.
At this site stands the Temple of Debod, the ancient Egyptian temple from 2nd century BC which was gifted to Spain by the Egyptian government.  The picture of the temple was alluring enough to make to our planned itinerary.
Madrid in 2 days | West Park

This is one of the free- entrance public parks in Madrid where people come in the evening with their family and pets to stroll, run and rewind.

Exploring the gorgeous public parks is one of the best things to do in Madrid in 2 days. There are many more important sites in the park which include the cable car, rose garden for the annual exhibition, Institute of ceramic technology and many more.

Studded with evergreen trees on lush green slopes, the park is famous for its essentially English landscape.

Casa de Campo is the largest park in Madrid and is five times larger than Central Park in the US. When in West Park don’t miss the cable car ride to the Casa de Campo park

Dinner at Plaza Mayor

A grand Statue of a man mounted on a horse, against the backdrop of huge red building at Plaza de Mayor, Madrid, under a starry sky at night

As the warm sunny day came to a close we walked into the throbbing city center (Main square)at Plaza Mayor. The construction of Plaza Mayor began in 1617 during King Phillip’ III’s reign. If you want to experience Madrid’s culture, food, and lifestyle, this is the place to be. It is the social and cultural hub of Madrid.

It is speckled with bakeries, chocolate shops, restaurants, flea market, and live performances. This is where we had our first taste of authentic seafood paella in a quaint underground restaurant.

[box title=”” bg_color=”#ddc8a8″ align=”center”] Culture and cuisine are an essential part of your Spanish experience. I recommend incorporating one of these evening tours to your Madrid itinerary for this reason.

  • Tapas, Taverns & History Tour of Madrid
  • Flamenco Show & Special Menu at Torres Bermejas[/box]

    On our way back we walked to another famous plaza nearby, the Puerto del Sol from where we took a metro back to our hotel.

    Day 2 in Madrid

    Plan: A day trip from Madrid

    Toledo Day Trip - Ancient Bridges
    Walking tour of Toledo

    On the second day, we decided to take a day trip to Spain’s former capital and currently a UNESCO world heritage center, Toledo.

    We reached Puerto del Sol once again to book our tour tickets. You can check the details of our trip in my post about the one day in Toledo.
    You can also take a day trip to Segovia or Seville, which are other beautiful historical cities near Madrid.
    We had a stroll around Plaza de Espana after our day trip.

    • Full Day Tour to historic sites of Ávila and Segovia from Madrid 
    • Three Cities in One Day: Segovia, Ávila & Toledo [/box]

      Day 3 in Madrid – Soak in the city

      Plan: Museums, Retiro Park, Alcala Gate, Flamenco Show

      Our original plan included a trip to Santiago Bernabeu, the stadium of Real Madrid Football Club, but we dropped that off our list.
      That’s because we had already been to Camp Nou in Barcelona. However, hardcore fans of Real Madrid cannot and should not let go of the chance to visit the home of one of the world’s greatest football clubs. 
      So, on our last day in Europe, we woke up a little late, had breakfast and started our lazy tour of the city, with a heavy heart.

      The National Archeological Museum in Madrid

      Madrid in 2 days | Museum of Archeology
      Madrid has some outstanding museums for art and history lovers, but by this time we had already been to six museums in the last 14 days.
      So, while we loved walking in the city, looking at the gorgeous museums, we didn’t enter any of them except the National Archeological Museum. The choice was simple – it was unique, different from anything we have seen so far on our trip, it was about the world and about evolution.
      The entry fee of 3 Euros seemed peanuts compared to the experience that the museum offered. With four floors each dedicated to an era of history – Prehistoric, Ancient, Medieval and Modern History.
      There are actual remains excavated from sites of Spain and North Africa which are preserved in the museum and 3-D videos explaining each of the exhibits. In our 2-hour trip to the museum, we could only cover the pre-historic and ancient history.
      We came back to this museum again in the evening just to rush through all four floors and like taking a roller-coaster ride through thousands of years of human history before the museum closed.
      Note that the tickets that you buy are valid for the entire day, irrespective of how many times you want to enter and exit. I loved this tour more so because it was completely totally different from all other museums and sites we had visited on our Europe Trip.
      Other important places within a distance of 4km from here are the National Library (the archeological museum is just behind this) and the Golden Triangle of Art formed by the three great art museums of Madrid – Museo Del Prado, Museo Thyssen, and Reina Sofia Museum.
      The walking tour map below shows all these spots highlighted.
      Museum walking map of Madrid


      Puerta de Alcala

      Madrid in 2 days | Alcala Gate
      The gate of Alcala is regarded as the first such victory arch built in Europe in the post-Roman era. It is older than the iconic Arc De Triompe in Paris. It stands in the beautiful Independence Plaza, another public square, which is, at the center of Madrid’s museum map.

      El Retiro Park

      Madrid Itinerary - El Retiro Park
      Just beside the Alcala gate is arguably the most beautiful park in Madrid – the Retiro Park. This green oasis spread over 125 hectares also has some spectacular monuments, statues, and an artificial lake.
      You can see artists painting at the corners and live performances by street dancers. The delightful scenes bring flashbacks of the Victoria Memorial to a fellow from Kolkata. Well, this one is five times larger than our Victoria memorial garden though.

      When in Retiro Park do not miss the Palacio de Velázquez (named after its architect) and Crystal Palace of Madrid. They are both stunning pieces of architecture and adds to the charm of the park’s landscape

      Puerta del Sol – Gate of the Sun

      Madrid Symbol at sol gate-min
      Another famous public square, Puerta del Sol was one of the gates of Madrid in the 15th century. It was named after the rising sun decoration and its orientation towards the East. Here you will see the tourist help desks, souvenir shops and walking tour guides.
      You will also see some of the iconic statues of Madrid – Phillip III statue of 1616 and Madrid’s official symbol “The Bear and the Strawberry tree”. Being an important place, there are a lot of security officers seen on duty here.

      Flamenco show 

      I love dancing (a LOT), so when it came to celebrating my birthday in Madrid, it was a no-brainer.
      Flamenco is the most famous Spanish dance form which involves creating music with feet. An evening of Flamenco show in one of the Tablaos should be easy to squeeze into your 3 days in Madrid itinerary.
      The Tablao Almonte is located in Calle de Juan Bravo. It has daily shows at 9:30 pm which can be booked online. The website wrongly shows two slots- 8 pm and 9:30 pm though.
      To be honest, the place looked a bit shady from outside, and the change of timing didn’t help with the first impression. But the ambiance inside was a pleasant surprise.
      With dim lights and a lot of family and couple guests, we felt comfortable as soon as we entered.
      The show was mind-boggling, extremely complex and nothing like the “Senorita” dance shown in Bollywood movies.
      The music was created live by a guitarist, a vocalist, and two outstanding Flamenco dancers. This, according to me was the highlight of our 3 days in Madrid.

      Other Places to explore in Madrid in 3 Days

      We had created a bigger itinerary for Madrid in 3 days, but it is not possible to do it all. You have to choose what appeals to you the most. For example, we could explore the archeological museum for so many hours just because we skipped the other museums. Here are a few interesting things that you can add to your Madrid itinerary.
      • Railway Museum , one of the largest railway collection in Europe
      • The Madrid City Hall, also called the Palace of Communication. If not enter, at least make sure you see this spectacular monument up close. Somehow we missed this although it was up there on our charter.
      • And of course one of the art museums in the Golden Triangle of Art in Madrid
      The best thing about Madrid is that you can see many places on foot. Besides, there are so many free things to do in Madrid – parks, museums and more.
      I loved Madrid for the sunny weather, the beautiful architecture and of course the cleanliness.

      FAQs for Madrid Trip Planning

      How to reach Madrid?

      Madrid is the capital and most accessible city in Spain, so reaching it is not difficult. You can visit there with your Schengen Visa, the details of which can be checked on my post How to plan your Europe Trip. You can apply for your visa here.

      Where to stay in Madrid?

      We stayed in the IBIS budget hotel which was standard and pocket-friendly. It’s a large city, so choose to stay near the metro station for ease of conveyance. Check out the best places to stay in Madrid.

      Check out all available options directly from Booking.com

      How many days do I need in Madrid?

      Madrid has a plethora of attractions within the city and some of the best opportunities for daytrips. However, given the convenient transport network and attractions located in close proximity, you can explore the best of Madrid in 2-3 days.

      3 days is ideal to visit Madrid and also manage an excursion to nearby heritage sites. But you won’t regret staying longer. 

      What is the best time to visit Madrid?

      Madrid has warmer weather all year round compared to other West European cities. Since walking is the best way to explore this city, you would prefer time with lower precipitation and not too hot temperatures.

      So, Spring from March to May is the best time to visit. When we visited in the first week of May it was sunny and windy at the same time.

      It was very pleasant to walk around the city although we could sense the temperature ramping up for the upcoming summers.

      What is the best food to have in Madrid?

      Madrid is a foodie’s paradise. The best place to eat is in Plaza de Mayor which is lit up with beautiful dinners at night. Tapas and Paella are the two most popular Spanish dishes.

      We loved the seafood Paella here. Funny thing is most mid-range restaurants charge the same for a glass of coke and a glass of champagne or Sangria.

      So even though we aren’t into alcoholic beverages we ended up trying Champagne. The food in Madrid is cheaper than other Western European capitals.

      Is Madrid expensive?

      Madrid offers a plethora of rich experiences without burning a hole in your pocket. Food is cheaper (and might I say tastier) than other big cities in Western Europe. Hotel prices are on the higher side, but you can take the advantage of booking early to get discounts.

      Compared to Barcelona, or Paris, Madrid is overall cheaper, and very tourist-friendly.

  1. Borders & Bucket Lists September 19, 2018

    I've never been to Madrid, which is surprising since I feel like I've hit up every Western European capital, but it looks amazing! I'd love to check out the palace and the gate of the sun!

  2. Anwesha Guha September 19, 2018

    After reading your post, I so want to go to Spain. If I ever make it to there, I will definitely visit the capital city.

  3. Josy Austin September 19, 2018

    Goodness. You managed to cram soooo much into your two days in Madrid!

    I have only visited the city for a couple of nights for a business trip. I did manage to eat amazing food, and walk around the pretty streets in the evening, but I missed almost all of these sights! (Oops!)

    Toledo sounds like a lovely place to explore too…So I guess I need to go back to both!

  4. Claire September 19, 2018

    It sounds like we have similar interests, I would LOVE to go to that Archaeological Museum (I've been studying prehistoric Gaul, randomly) – and try all the local desserts! What kind of special cookies and chocolate are local to Madrid?

  5. Two Worlds Treasures Umiko Buhl September 20, 2018

    Well, I don't understand why people said there's nothing beyond the palace. You proved them wrong. I've never been to Spain, but maybe people said that because all those huildings aren't as grande as the ones in Toledo or Seville?

  6. Authentic Food Quest September 21, 2018

    Wow, you packed quite a bit in for only two days. I love your detailed itinerary of what to do in Spain. Visiting the palace in Madrid and hanging out at Casa de campo would be two experiences I'd love to have. Beautiful pictures and very inspirational. Can't wait to go back to Spain soon.

  7. Unknown September 22, 2018

    Great post as we are going to Spain next April. Yes on a tour however we do have extra time in Madrid.

  8. Maheshwaran Jothi September 24, 2018

    Spain is one place in my list for long, but could never make it happen.
    Thabks for the insights. Will keep an eye for next opportunity.

  9. arv! Jpr September 24, 2018

    Madrid and Barcelona are high on my list. Next year, maybe!

  10. Supriya September 24, 2018

    Really superrb…. amazing trip in pics

  11. Roshan Radhakrishnan September 24, 2018

    Prawn kichuri.. Haha. First time I'm hearing that in my life as a description for Paella.

    Lovely indepth article.

  12. Sinjana .Ghosh September 25, 2018

    Thanks for your comment. I think they compare it to Barcelona which is the other big city with a busy airport and indeed has a lot to offer.

  13. Sinjana .Ghosh September 25, 2018

    Surely.. We stayed in spain for 7 days on our Europe trip and loved it. For any questions on Madrid or Barcelona I'm just a ping away

  14. Sinjana .Ghosh September 25, 2018

    Haha.. I know, but somehow we came up with this analogy and it stuck with us. I have started putting prawns in our khicdi these days

  15. Sinjana .Ghosh September 25, 2018

    Toledo is awesome for a day trip. I could have stayed there for one night too if I had known earlier that it would be this beautiful

  16. ALL ABOUT THE WOMAN September 25, 2018

    I've never been to Madrid and this comes like a super handy guide after reading your experience. Thanks for sharing. #dewreads

    Oh! Madrid is beautiful, love the way you have explained it in your post. Looks so real. @gleefulreads #MyFriendAlexa

  18. Sinjana .Ghosh September 26, 2018

    Thanks so much Josy. It's difficult to cram so much on business tours. We had the whole day to ourselves. I still feel we missed so much bcoz we were a little tired in the last lap of our 15 day packed euro trip

  19. Sinjana .Ghosh September 26, 2018

    Thanks a lot.glad that u liked it

  20. Alison September 27, 2018

    We just spent 4 days a bit further south in Granada and Málaga. It was so beautiful, I'd love to go back and explore Madrid.

  21. Per October 2, 2018

    I’d love to go to Madrid. It’s one of few European capitals left on my list. How about going to a football match? I’m crazy about football and Madrid is one of the best cities in the world for that?

  22. Annick Lenoir-Peek October 3, 2018

    I also hate it when people automatically say there’s nothing to see – you found plenty in Madrid! The Egyptian temple looks gorgeous – so a shame that it was closed. I’ve been to a few flamenco shows and I think they’re generally in questionable looking places! But you’ve got to see one.

  23. Lisa October 3, 2018

    I love Madrid! It's like my second home, and I always love to return. Retiro Park and the views from there are memorable. And as it the Templo de Debod; always a stunning sight to see, and with so much history behind it too.

  24. Kavey October 3, 2018

    Thanks so much for sharing your suggested itinerary for Madrid in two days. It's a city I once visited a few decades ago but really want to revisit as I don't have very strong memories and my husband hasn't been at all. On the first day, I think we'd follow similar to you to do the palace, cathedral, monastery and Egyptian temple. I think we would likely leave Toledo for another trip or move on there after Madrid, so I think your day 3 would be good for our day 2, but I might skip the football club! I think some time in local food markets would be essential for me!

  25. Anita Zych October 3, 2018

    So many things to do in Madrit! It's a shame but I have been all around Spain but never in the capital. I would go for the boats for sure, they look like such a romantic experience

  26. diana chen October 6, 2018

    I only got to visit Madrid for a day and basically did what you did on Day 1 of your trip. There’s obviously so much more to do and see than that, so I’d love to go back and get the full experience. One thing I’ve always wanted to do but never had the chance to while I was in Spain was to watch a Flamenco show! So cool that you got to do that and sounds like such a fun and special experience.

  27. Sinjana .Ghosh October 6, 2018

    Thanks Diana. Yes, the trip was amazing and Flamenco was a peak

  28. Eazy Nazy October 8, 2018

    wow you have covered a lot in 2 days and have shared some amaizng fun experiences. This will save a lot of time for everyone who is planning a trip to Madrid.

  29. Amanda November 15, 2018

    I've seen a lot of Madrid itineraries lately, but you guys seemed to pack in a LOT of sightseeing in such a short amount of time! I've never been to Madrid myself yet, but only a few of these were on my list. Clearly I need to update it! Not sure why, but the Puerto Del Alcala drew me in the most. Just simply beautiful and soaked in history. Great tips!

  30. Lisa November 15, 2018

    Of the many times I've been to Madrid, I still haven't visited Palacio Real! I have however, been many times to Retiro Park and Plaza Mayor. It's a wonderful city with so much rich history. I also never tire of seeing Templo de Rebod; it's always stunning!

  31. Krasen Jelyazkov November 16, 2018

    It is normal you can't visit everything in a city, especially cities like Madrid. You will always miss something. Btw, in my experience, the museums are most time consuming destinations. I always try to plan at least 3-4 hours for a museum, especially if it is a big museum. Anyway, what you have visited and seen is quite a lot! 🙂

  32. Blair Villanueva November 16, 2018

    Madrid is also the city I wish to explore because it is connected to our Filipino heritage. We are colonized by Spain for the last 300years and we consider Spain as our former Motherland. It would be lovely to pay a visit and learn more about many places.

  33. Daniel November 16, 2018

    I have visited Madrid before but still found this post on Toledo quite fascinating. I even learned a few new things. It's a great decision to spend more time in Toledo and appreciate this beautiful part of the historical city. Covering so many places in 2 days is really impressive! I think this article is a must-read for anyone planning to visit Madrid

  34. Traveling Translator November 17, 2018

    Funny, my husband and I were talking today about finally going to Madrid to visit a friend soon. We spent one day there a couple years ago to catch a flight and it was just enough to see the main sights, but we didn't see half of what you shared. Your post will definitely come in handy on our next trip!

  35. Meenakshi J November 19, 2018

    O wow…such a useful and interesting post as usual,Sinjana. The captures do complete justice to an ancient place like madrid. The symbol of Madrid and the Bells of Sol Gate pic is quite interesting. I also would have headed straight to the Archaeological museum for sure.I am sure you must have had a great time there 🙂

  36. Jane Dempster-Smith January 19, 2019

    I really enjoyed your article. We have visited Madrid twice and still have not done everything. Your article has brought back memories, I enjoyed Retiro Park wandering around escaping from the heat. I also enjoy the Markets when I visit. Thanks for the map as well.

  37. Paula January 21, 2019

    Wow! So much to see in Madrid. A good friend of mine who lives here California is from Madrid, and is moving back next month. I have promised to visit her. And now I’m getting excited! The palace looks amazing and I think I would enjoy visiting the museum as well. I always knew Madrid is a cool city but never really knew what is there to see.

  38. Sumit February 24, 2019

    Love this amazing guide. Madrid and Barcelona are on my list for 2019. Let’s see how quickly I plan them.

  39. Christine Rogador March 12, 2019

    Love this itinerary! I’m coming to Spain around August and this is definitely handy for my visit in Madrid.

  40. Wendy Lee December 11, 2019

    We were in Madrid in October and loved it. We definitely saw many of the sights you mentioned. I would highly recommend the Prado and Reina Sofia Museum for art lovers–their collections are awesome.

    1. Sinjana Ghosh December 12, 2019

      Thanks Wendy. I heard great things about museums. It’s just that we wanted had too much of art museums already on our Europe trip by that time and wanted to relax a bit just strolling in the parks and sidewalks.

  41. Jenn | By Land and Sea January 29, 2020

    It has been 10 years since I visited Madrid! This post took me back to all the wonderful things this city has to offer!

  42. Angela April 3, 2020

    I hate to admit it but I’ve never been to Madrid. I hope once the world returns to normal that it will be a place I am able to visit. Your guide is very informative.
