What our students said about Madrid

Rating: 5/5

5.0

Madrid is a fabulous place, even though I have been to Spain many times I'd never been able to spend any time there. It really has something for everyone, from exceptional museums to parks, restaurants and plays and music bars and ... something for everyone. The only real risk is doing too much. The metro works extremely well in Madrid and it's easy to get around.

I love Madrid! More typical Spanish than Barcelona. If you want to get to know the Spanish life, Madrid can show you.
