More about Real Madrid

Club info

The Most Successful Football Club in the World
Real Madrid has won the Champions League (or its predecessor, the European Cup) 12 times and the World Cup four times. This makes Real Madrid the most successful football club in the world. Because of these successes, FIFA named Real Madrid the best football club of the 20th century. The glory years of the club were in the mid fifties to early sixties, when Real Madrid dominated national and international football with many national titles and five consecutive wins in the European Cup. Real Madrid was also very successful in the late 90s and at the beginning of the 21st century, with three Champions League victories (1998, 2000, 2002). However, after the re-emergence of FC Barcelona, the club was less successful both nationally and internationally. The club however has revived since the appointement of Zinedine Zidane as head coach, by winning 2 champions league titles in a row in 2016 & 2017. 

Starplayer Cristiano Ronaldo in the spotlights.

Not forgetting other players like Isco, Bale and goalkeeper Keylor Navas. Real Madrid definitely now has the right quality of players to stop any opponent that comes in their way of winning titles. The last years the club won 2 champions league titles.  Last season they also won the domestic title!

El Clasico
Real Madrid has several rivalries with other clubs in Spain. Besides the Derbys against Atlético, the matches against life-long rival FC Barcelona are infamous. The last few years Barcelona have won more matches lately against their rivals from Madid, but this year 'Los Blancos' will do everything to beat Barcelona. 

Origins of Madrid FC. and the Start of La Liga
Football was introduced to Madrid by students and professors from the Libre de Enseñanza Institución. Some of these students had studied in England. In 1895 they founded a football club called Football Club Sky. Madrid FC (the current Real Madrid) was founded on March 6, 1902, a spin-off from the original Football ClubSky In 1905 Madrid FC won its first major trophy, the Copa del Rey (the Spanish Cup), an achievement they would repeat on three consecutive years. In 1920, King Alfonso XIII gave Madrid FC, (as well as some other football teams in Spain) the royal title, hence the name Real Madrid which means "Royal Madrid". Real Madrid formed the basis for the creation of La Liga (1929), the national competition, which they won in the 1931-32 season for the first time and held the following year.

Santiago Bernabeu and the Glory Years
In 1945 Santiago Bernabeu Yeste became president of Real Madrid. Before being president of the club he was a player in Real Madrid's First team (an attacker with more than 200 goals), assistant coach and then head coach. He achieved an impressive development of the club. The Santiago Bernabeu stadium was built and good training facilities were established. He also started the tactic of signing foreign players to Real Madrid, including the famous Alfredo Di Stefano and Ferenc Puskas. It was also Bernabeu who worked together with a journalist from the French sports daily L'Equipe and founded an international tournament for European Champions, which later would become the UEFA Champions League. Real Madrid won this prestigious tournament five times in succession between 1956 and 1960, and again in 1966. Real Madrid dominated the Primera Liga in the 70’s, winning the Championship five times and the Spanish Cup three times.

Los Galacticos
The recent summers were relatively quiet for Real Madrid. The only major signing was Fábio Coentrão who was bought from Benfica for € 30 million. In recent years the club has paid astronomical amounts for some of the best players in the world. At the beginning of this century, Real signed players such as Zidane, Figo, Ronaldo and Beckham. This star team that won, among other prizes, the Champions League was thereafter known as Los Galacticos. Although initially it was a positive nickname, the lack of continued success eventually gave the term a negative connotation. Real Madrid also has the dubious honour of paying the highest transfer fee for a football player in the world; Cristiano Ronaldo was bought from Manchester United for a staggering 94 million euros. Real Madrid was also responsible for making Zinedine Zidane and Luis Figo the most expensive football players of their time.

The Richest Football Club in the World
Besides being the most successful, Real Madrid is also the richest football club in the world. TV rights, sponsoring, ticketing and merchandise add up to an annual turnover of around € 440 million per year. However, the club has a huge debt; an estimated € 330 million. This is not a rare phenomenon for major football clubs in Spain (and in England too!).

British Players at Real Madrid
Several British players have worn the magic white shirt of Real Madrid; - David Beckham, - Michael Owen - Steve McManaman - Jonathan Woodgate - Laurie Cunningham. Surprisingly, Steve McManaman is the most succesful amongst this list; he won both the Champions League and La Liga twice. He scored the winning goal and was chosen as Man of the Match in the Champions League final of 2000 against Valencia.

Shirt and logo
Real Madrid home kit is completely white. Originally Real used to have a blue stripe running diagonally across the white shirt. Although now removed from the shirt, the blue stripe is still reflected in the logo of the club. The away shirt is either solid black or solid purple. The logo of Real Madrid has always been a circle with the three letters MCF superimposed over each other.

The logo with the crown on top.

A crown was added to the logo after the royal title was given to the club. When in 1931, the monarchy was abolished, the royal title and the crown were removed. They were both restored in 1941, two years after the civil war ended.

C. Thomas, 3 persons 8 April 2017
Real Madrid - Atlético Madrid

1st class service - totally worth booking trips for football matches through yourselves. The atmosphere was electric in the stadium and the seats were amazing. Hotel was nice - however on arrival the guy at reception was totally rude which did not start our weekend very well. However once he left cannot fault the other staff within the hotel. Very central and close for everything. The service from our rep - Rebecca was excellent, left nothing to chance and we were confident all would be in place for our trip. As this was for our sons 21st.

Tip: would recommend getting the stadium tour tickets before you go and take Route 2 hop on hop off bus to get there. We took a 2 day ticket and was able to do the tour the day before the game and then took the bus to the game the next day. The queues were long for tour tickets. Well worth the money.

D. Arrowsmith, 7 persons 8 April 2017
Real Madrid - Atlético Madrid

A very efficiently organised trip with great service from FootballBreak. Madrid is a beautiful city and the Bernebau stadium when local rivals, Atletico, is unbelievable. The atmosphere around and inside the stadium was absolutely brilliant but at no time did my grandsons, sons-in-law and I feel threatened or intimidated. Just extremely lively

Tip: Enjoy the city - it's just beautiful with great restaurants and bars - try the jambonieres - places where you can get sliced dried ham with a beer, coffee etc

C. Cross, 2 persons 12 March 2017
Real Madrid - Real Betis

I took my 9 year old and had a great weekend in Madrid. I had my tickets upgraded at no extra cost to VIP and barring my wedding day and birth of my children( have to say that!) it was the greatest day of my life. Seeing my sons idol score and a late winner was just sensational.

Tip: Sunday mornings are great for site seeing. Hire electric scooters. Keeps the children happy and you get to see more of the city. Don't bother getting to the stadium early to see the Madrid coach arrive. The police move everyone away from the entrance and the coach has blacked out windows anyway.

K. Skinner, 4 persons 12 March 2017
Real Madrid - Real Betis

Our last trip to Barcelona was great but this time Footballbreak came through for us spectacularly. Our hotel was magnificent! 5star luxury, situated in prime position to enjoy both Madrid and the football. On check in, we were given our envelope containing our match tickets. What an awesome surprise when we checked them- only to find that we had been upgraded to corporate VIP !! we are still pinching ourselves to think that we were wined and dined and then seated 5 rows from the pitch to watch a brilliant team play a very good game of football. This is the second package we have enjoyed through the company and both trips were booked with ease. The booking process was simplistic with fantastic choice at each stage. Follow up emails were sent before the trip with all the relevant coupons and advice. Not a single quibble with either experience. Thank you again and hopefully we will be booking Munich next year!

S. Wood, 2 persons 12 March 2017
Real Madrid - Real Betis

My rating would have been excellent for the whole trip if it wasn't for the fact my daughters phone was taken from her pocket Having said that the atmosphere in the stadium was brilliant and the seat were fantastic only 7 back from the pitch. The couple of queries I had were answered promptly and advice given. Madrid is a beautiful city and I would highly recommend visiting. If your a football fan I would certainly book through football break. Yes I'm sure you could do the trip cheaper but would you get the seats we did with hassle free effort. I would recommend the stadium tour.

Tip: my only advice is be totally street wise my daughter wanted to see the footballer get off their bus but so did 1/2 the stadium. Very busy, so if you do want to do this make sure you get to the stadium in good time otherwise you'll get caught up in the crowd and this is where my daughters phone was taken. It could have happened in any busy city in any busy crowd. The sad thing for us is that it contained all the stadiums tour photos. :-(

D. Croft, 2 persons 12 March 2017
Real Madrid - Real Betis

Fantastic Trip all round, the hospitality at the stadium was amazing and created a really special event for myself and my son.

Tip: Use the metro and plan in advance how to get back after a game

Real Madrid - Real Betis

Really good holiday. The hotel was central and it was great booking it as a whole package, you don't have to worry about doing anything else. You also get the option to pay in stages and will receive email reminders. Football breaks will contact you a few weeks before your trip with all your details and explaining what you need to do. Once we had arrived at our hotel the football tickets were ready to collect from reception. The match itself was fantastic, I upgraded the seats to cat 2 and we were situated behind the goal first tier, amazing view. The atmosphere in the stadium was great with the local supporters, no queuing at all apart from the tube back to the hotel but that was expected (wasn't even that bad). Real Madrid won and my boyfriend loved his birthday surprise, he would love to go back one day!

Tip: Stadium tour is interesting with lots to do and see, would recommend that. We loved the zoo in Madrid, it had loads of animals and was a lovely day out. You should also visit Circulo de bellas artes it is a bar which fantastic views of the city, it is really modern and cool with a range of drinks.

Jane Willets, 3 persons 18 February 2017
Real Madrid - RCD Espanyol

We very much enjoyed our trip, when you book on-line you sometimes have many questions like will everything turn out ok, can we trust the website, will our tickets be waiting for us?? and so on. Well I can DEFINATELY say what a fabulous experience we had for our sons 18th, all went according to plan and the seating we were given (ok we paid more) were fantastic. Football breaks kept us well informed of all our arrangements, flights tickets were sent through to my e-mail, hotel was spot on. Just a big thank you and we will certainly be using you again and will recommend you to friends and family.

Tip: The only tips I have are wear comfortable shoes as you walk for miles as there is so much to see and experience, use the taxis as they are literally everywhere and try the local food especially a little café call Bon Appetite (great food).

Gareth and Rhys Rollings from Chichester 29 January 2017
Real Madrid - Real Sociedad

Found football break when looking for a birthday present for my son who is Real Madrid mad, being able to book the full package in one was so much easier then trying to get all the parts on different sites, I was able to upgrade the hotel and pick the flights I wanted very easily which also made the trip very convenient. Tickets to the game were waiting for us when we checked in and we were very lucky to be upgraded to VIP seats for the match which was simply out of this world and very unexpected. The stadium was amazing, we took in a tour the day before the match for a few hours, match day was simply unforgetable, the VIP experience was amazing from start to finish, a private lift to take us to the correct floor, free bar and food and a box with awesome views for the match, with drink and snacks served to us during the game as well. Madrid is a great city and is so easy to get around, you will not be short of places to visit, eat, drink and relax.

Tip:Take in the stadium tour and a segway trip around Madrid.

Neil Howard from Berkhamsted, 4 persons 20 April 2016
Real Madrid - Villarreal

Absolutely brilliant! Could not believe the match tickets when they said "VIP Corporate" on them, we thought that we had been given the wrong tickets right up until we went to the game. The hotel was very nice considering it was only 2* but I feel that this was because they didn\'t have a bar, however there was one literally 2 minutes walk. Breakfast was OK. Overall great value for money.

Tip: We had a free day in Madrid so we took a cab to the city centre where we found a get out of the room game called "fox in the box" comes highly recommended.

Aamir Ali & Aneesa Saleem from Glasgow 20 March 2016
Real Madrid - Sevilla

Overall I can safely say that I was extremely pleased with the service and package I received from From choosing the hotel to the match (Real Madrid v Sevilla VIP Tickets) I was eased through the process and everything was taken care of. I arrived at the hotel and my tickets were there. Simple and no hassle. What else do you need when going on holiday? Madrid is a beautiful city albeit we had poor weather and The Bernabeu is simply amazing as is the atmosphere. We were also treated to 4 goals and majestic Ronaldo! In short - I would 110% book again!

Tip: Please check the weather as it can get cold and wet! 4 nights is probably just about right and don\'t underestimate the Metro system. So easy and cheap! The stadium is only a few stops from the City Centre! ball

John Fisher from Wilmslow, 3 persons 13 February 2016
Real Madrid - Athletic Bilbao

It was a great trip, and well worth paying extra for some for the items e.g stadium seats, central hotel. Your last minute upgrade of our tickets added to our enjoyment, it ws just a pity we ate before we arrived!! With the match being brought forward to Saturday afternoon, it gave us a full day on Sunday (and Monday morning) to explore Madrid, which we found to be a great city and easy to negotiate. Overall, we had a great weekend and are looking forward to going somewhere else with you soon.

Tip:Plenty of places to visit. We took in the Rastro Market on Sunday morning, and went to the Prado exhibition in the afternoon. I would advise against buying the \'Madrid Card\' as I don\'t think there\'s enough time to visit that many places. Cheaper to buy them separately. Also, if you get a VIP ticket, get there early to enjoy the benefits. We ate before we arrived.

Anna Shaw & Ben Aparicio from Oldham 13 February 2016
Real Madrid - Athletic Bilbao

My boyfriend is Spanish and an avid Real Madrid fan so this trip to see Real Madrid was the perfect birthday present. I loved the convenience of having the whole package booked and organised. Everything ran smoothly. Our tickets were at the hotel reception when we arrived. We did panic a little at first because the seat numbers were 25 and 27 so we thought we weren\'t sat together. But it turns out it\'s just the way Madrid number their seats. Odd numbers are sat together and even numbers are sat together. I originally booked the middle category of seats, but a few weeks after booking I decided I wanted to upgrade them and get the full experience. Customer services were extremely helpful and upgraded straight away for much less than I expected. Then to top it off, a few weeks before our trip we received an email to tell us we had been given VIP tickets! It did not disappoint. We got unlimited food and drink for pre-match, half time and post-match. Our seats were excellent and so close to the pitch. Ronaldo celebrated right in front of us! Overall I would highly recommend the whole experience. My boyfriend said it was a dream come true, and a month on he is still over the moon about it. Thank you football break!

Tip: If watching Real Madrid, allow time on another day to do the full stadium tour. Fantastic experience.

Real Madrid - RCD Espanyol

- Your thoughts on the total package (flight, hotel, match ticket) - amazing, a whole lot more than we cold have ever expected.
- The atmosphere you experienced in the stadium during the match.- the atmosphere was amazing at the game, although I was a little disappointed that smoking was allowed in the ground during the game.
- The ease of a total package - easiest package break I\'ve ever used, these guys know what they\'re doing.
- The service you received from representatives of - first class without a hitch.
- Did you enjoy the city you visited? - Had an amazing couple of days in Madrid, use the public metro, very easy to use.

Tip: Do a little bit of investigating on line before getting there, understand public transport and location. It helped a lot to be able to walk to and from the Stadium from the Hotel.

James Reid from Swindon, 8 persons 17 January 2016
Real Madrid - Sporting Gijón

We recently visited to Real Madrid vs Sporting Gijon. I think the total package was an amazing bargain. We paid for flights, hotel and tickets around £200. The Bernabeau was amazing. We had pitchside seats and the game was amazing. We received amazing service as it was my 21st. I would highly recommend Madrid, it is a lovely city with amazing sights.

Tip: Utilise the metro! It\'s super cheap and easy to use! JAMES REID MADRID JAMES REID MADRID 1

Peter Walsh from Huddersfield, 2 persons 17 January 2016
Real Madrid - Sporting Gijón

We managed to upgrade to VIP seats. The trip was fantastic. I would recommend a total package to anyone!

Tip: I would book your hotel near the stadium within walking distance

Stuart and Bailey Kirby from Birmingham, 2 persons 17 January 2016
Real Madrid - Sporting Gijón

Overall package and service that you provided was excellent ..could not find a fault with anything ...10 out of 10 ...i would deffernatly be using you again ...and would defanetley recomend you ...thank you very much for everything!

Daniel Watts from Notthingham, 4 persons 9 January 2016
Real Madrid - Deportivo La Coruña

The package was great value made so easy by footballbreaks, the stadium was electric and Madrid was fantasic

Tip: Yes book with footballbreaks for a great no fuss trip!

Robert Appleby from Glasgow, 2 persons 30 December 2015
Real Madrid - Real Sociedad

Bought the trip to watch Real Madrid for my sons Xmas. We had the best time of our life\'s. Starting with the flight on the 29th December left on time, €30 euro taxi to the hotel. Hotel was spotless and only a 10/15 walk to the stadium. Our match tickets were upgraded free as a new year gift from Area VIP. Got treated like kings in the VIP box, the stadium was full and atmosphere was unbelievable. The next day we done the stadium tour and the wee man was so excited. On the last day we had time to kill so we jumped the metro to the Atheletico Madrid stadium for a walk about.

Tip: If I was going back to Madrid I would be traveling everywhere on the metro, very easy to work and very responsible prices.

Peter Bailey from South Croydon, 2 persons 21 November 2015
Real Madrid - FC Barcelona

An excellent, hassle-free way to attend El Clasico. No-nonsense, efficient flights with Easyjet, a fine hotel in the centre of Madrid and superb category 1 match tickets in a magnificent stadium. Fantastic atmosphere and an incredible match. A vibrant city which will continue to fascinate in repeated visits.

Tip: Transfer from airport to hotel via the city Metro is easy. Buy a multi-day travel pass. Our hotel across the street from the Opera Metro station was ideal. Plenty of bars and restaurants nearby, with the Plaza Mayor and narrow streets of the atmospheric old town minutes away.

Barcelona’s great rival might not have the Mediterranean at its doorstep, but this doesn’t make it any less enthralling a destination. Fizzing with life and energy, Madrid is the cradle of the Spanish movida, the counter-cultural movement that exploded in the city after the end of the Francoist dictatorship. The city continues to echo this emblematic period in its openness, fashion, and underground scene. And, of course, its dedication to partying till the sun comes up.


More about Madrid

City info

Barcelona’s great rival might not have the Mediterranean at its doorstep, but this doesn’t make it any less enthralling a destination. Fizzing with life and energy, Madrid is the cradle of the Spanish movida, the counter-cultural movement that exploded in the city after the end of the Francoist dictatorship. The city continues to echo this emblematic period in its openness, fashion, and underground scene. And, of course, its dedication to partying till the sun comes up.


Sight-seeing in Madrid

The Prado Museum (metro Line 1, Atocha stop) is an absolutely essential item on your itinerary. The biggest art gallery in the world, it has more than 7,000 masterpieces of Spanish painting (of which only 1,500 are exhibited) dating from the 15 th to 18th centuries. It is also well-stocked with the works of the great masters of the Italian and Flemish school. El Greco, Velázquez, Titian, Rembrandt – if you want to see them all, dedicate an entire day. If you’re a real art nut, section off a second one!

The Reina Sofía Museum (metro Line 1 Atocha stop), picks up where the Prado stops, exhibiting Spanish and international artworks from the 19th century to the contemporary era. Here you’ll find Picasso’s legendary “Guernica”, which depicts the brutal bombing of the Basque town during the Spanish Civil War.

Meanwhile, the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum (metro Line 2 Banco de España stop), hosts one of the most exquisite private collections of paintings in the world.

Madrid’s historical buildings are as inspiring as its museums and art galleries.

Its streets are an extensive open-air museum, where you can follow the evolution of the city into a modern capital simply by walking through them. To discover old Madrid, go to the Puerta del Sol (literally, Door of the Sun) or the Plaza Mayor. Other great landmarks that give a flavour of the city’s history and beauty are the Palacio Real (Royal Palace), Casa de la Villa (City Hall), Plaza Cibeles, Teatro Real, Gran Vía, Puerta de Alcalá, Parque Retiro, and Plaza de España.



Madrid cuisine

When we think of Spanish gastronomy, the first things that come to mind are usually paella, potato omelette and cold tomato soup (gazpacho). But while these dishes are served all over the country, they are far from representing the full range of Iberian cuisine.

In Madrid, meals are often large, and sauce-based dishes are at the top of the menu. Cocido madrileño (a type of stew made up of meat, sausage and chickpeas) and callos (tripe in sauce) are two of the capital’s most typical dishes.

If you like picking at small plates, go to Melo’s bar (Metro Line 3, Lavapiés stop). Don’t be put off by the aesthetics of the place, or by its crowded interior. You’ll regret you missed out! It’s a veritable institution of the neighbourhood, serving mouth-watering tapas at very reasonable prices. Their croquetas and zapatillas (giant ham and cheese melts) have a reputation for being the best in the world!

As for the sweet stuff – you can’t do Madrid without sampling the inimitable churros (long, greasy sticks of deep-fried dough) and porras (a type of churro on steroids). They are often accompanied by a café con leche (coffee with milk) or thick, hot chocolate for dipping. They have a particular appeal to those staggering home after a night out!

One of the most famous chocolaterías in the city is the Chocolatería San Gines (metro Lines 1, 2 or 3, Sol stop, or Lines 2 and 5, Opera stop). This gourmet paradise has many dedicated fans. Will you join them?



Madrid, Spanish fashion capital

Madrid fashion is a veritable melting pot of trends and styles, and there is something for all tastes and budgets.

Gran Via is the main street, and between the metro stations of Gran Via and Santo Domingo you’ll find stores like C&A, H&M, Nike, Zara, Oysho, Primark, Pull&Bear, Clarks and others. Shopping addicts will be sure to leave with their arms loaded! 

In the Salamanca neighbourhood, the streets of Claudio Coello, José Ortega y Gasset and Serrano make up the “golden kilometre” of chic Madrid. Here, prestigious designer brands such as Chanel, Agatha Ruiz de la Prada, Carolina Herrera, Gucci, Armani and Louis Vuitton all display their most recent collections in their windows.

More alternative shops and independent boutiques are based around the axis of Malasaña – Fuencarral – Chueca, often squeezed between an abundance of tattoo parlours. Vintage fans will find heaven in the Templo de Susu (metro Lines 1 and 10, Tribunal stop or at PoplandHere you can plunge straight into the legacy of the movida, Madrid’s explosive 1980s counter-cultural scene.

If you like picking through bric-a-brac and second-hand clothes in search of a bargain, then go to the Rastro flea market. It is held in and around the street of Ribera de Curtidores every Sunday and bank holiday. There are few places as typically madrileño as this. Those who arrive before 11.00am can wander through the stalls freely, but if you prefer the more bustling atmosphere characteristic of the market, get there between 12pm and 3pm (when it closes).



Getting around Madrid

The Spanish capital has a vast public transport network. However, most of the tourist zone is concentrated in the heart of the city, so you can access most sights by foot without wearing yourself out.

The Madrid metro is one of the oldest in Europe (after those of Paris and London) and has 13 lines that will take you to almost any corner of the city. The advantage of the metro is its speed and the fact that it runs from 06.00am to 01.30am every day. It’s also free for children under 4.

The bus is an excellent alternative to the metro if you’re not in a rush, and especially if you want to admire the city on your journeys. The network is dense, practical and particularly fast thanks to the dedicated bus lanes. It goes from 6am to 11.30pm, after which time the night buses or búhos (owls) take over. Two lines serve all neighbourhoods of Madrid. On weekdays they go every 35 mins from 11.45pm to 4am (with the last one at 5.10am). Fridays, Saturdays and nights before bank holidays they go from 11.45pm to 5.30am, every 15-20 mins from the Plaza de Cibeles.

You can buy several different types of day tickets and season tickets in metro stations, either at the ticket machine or from the ticket office. Some newspaper kiosks on the street also supply them. Both the metro and bus function on the same system of tickets and fares. However, the “cercanía” trains that serve the Madrid suburbs have their own fare system.

Single tickets: €1.50 per journey in Madrid centre (Zone A) by bus, by metro or on the ML1 (Tramway Line 1). You pay an extra €0.10 for each of the next five stops, to a maximum of €2.00. No panic, the ticket machine or ticket seller will tell you how much you need to pay.

The Metrobus pass gives you ten trips, which can be used by several people at the same time, and is valid for all of inner Madrid (Zone A) by bus, metro or Tram Line 1, and costs only €12.20. Be warned, though. If you buy it from the airport, you’ll have to add a €3 airport supplement per person.

Tourist passes (abonos turísticos) are available for 1, 2, 3, 5 or 7 days. There are two versions and prices depending on the zones covered.

The A fare is for those who only want to get around the city centre. It covers the metro, ML1, buses and urban <i>cercanías</i>. Respectively, they cost €8.40, €14.20, €18.40, €26.80 €35.40 (there is a reduction of 50% for under 11’s).

The T fare includes all urban transport within the community of Madrid (thus including the ML2 and ML3 tram lines, Cercanías lines and intercity buses going to Àlcala de Henares, San Lorenzo de El Escorial and Anranjuez. The buses extend to Toledo, Cuenca and Guadalajara: respectively costing €17, €28.40, €35.40, €50.80 and €70.80 (50% reduction for under 11s). 

Click here to access the metro map of Madrid and its fare zones. The website of Madrid metropolitan trains allows you to consult an interactive map of public transport as well as find the best route for your journey. You can also check the timetables of each line and, even better, get real time status updates for the entire system.



Madrid at night

We know that the Spanish can party to the max. But with Madrid it’s on a whole new level.

The main artery of the city is Gran Via (Line 2, Santo Domingo stop or Lines 3 and 5 Callao stop). Here you can enjoy a pre-dinner drink on the rooftop terraces of the Ada or Urban hotels, while taking in the spectacular Spanish sunset.

When night has fallen, people flock to the Rialto Movistar, Príncipe, Lope de Vega, Compac Gran Vía and Caser Calderón theatres to watch plays and musicals. The restaurant-cabaret Gula Gula deserves a special mention due to its outrageous drag shows, which will put a smile on even the soberest face.

n the Malasaña neighbourhood (metro Lines 3 and 10 Tribunal or Plaza España stops, Line 2 Noviciado stop) you can experience the nostalgia of the movida in a host of alternative bars and venues. Rock and punk artists hold sway here, each one more underground than the next. In Ojalahave a drink with your feet in the sand while enjoying organic snacks and watching animated films projected onto the stone walls. Pretty original, right. Tupperware goes for a more kitsch vibe, as does Vía Láctea  (literally, the Milky Way), where the walls and ceilings are covered in posters and signs straight out of the 80s. The belting rock music will definitely leave your ears ringing.

If you’re not ready to stop after your tour of Malasaña, head to Chueca, the capital’s gay neighbourhood. It is the most open and cosmopolitan part of Madrid, welcoming people of all ages and predilections. Fun is guaranteed any night of the week – right up to sunrise.

Those who love clubbing and pulling all-nighters will be fully at home in Madrid. There are many late night venues, and they generally don’t close their doors until the early hours of the morning. One of the biggest club is Teatro Kapital (metro Line 1 Atocha stop), which is spread over a whopping 7 floors, with different music played in every room. Siroco, (à Malasaña), is a temple for alternative music, with an eclectic programming that means it’s possible to dance to techno one night and reggae the next.
