Madrid: Family Holiday

Spain's buzzing capital

Madrid Family Holiday

Take an exhilarating trip on the Teleférico, a cable car that takes you from Paseo del Pintor Rosales, (Metro Argüelles or Moncloa), to the Casa de Campo, where you will also find Parque de Atracciones, the city’s main amusement park, which is always a highlight of a family holiday in Madrid. The weekend flea market, El Rastro is disorganised looking but fantastic and full of character, but do keep a close eye on your children though, as it so packed and rather shambolic – although really marvellous fun!

If you are a family that appreciates the finer things of life then go to the Prado; Madrid’s premiere tourist site and one of the most important art collections in the world. Often loud and eccentric, a family holiday in Madrid is an awesome choice, especially as the Spanish take their kids out with them at night and that dinner often starts at 10pm.
