So your layover is in Madrid, is it?

As lovely as we’re sure the airport building is, there’s no reason why you can’t bust out of your terminal and hit the tarmac of Madrid’s streets instead for a spot of sightseeing.

Whether you’ve got a few hours or are spending the night, with one of our Madrid hosts by your side, absolutely no time will go to waste in making your layover the ultimate stayover!

They’ll navigate and ensure you’re back in time for your connecting flight, so the only question becomes, why not?

Take to the cobbled stone plazas and get exploring. Is there a neighborhood you’ve always wanted to see?

Would you like to stretch your legs in elegant Retiro Park or maybe go for some sherry tasting? It’s noon somewhere in the world, right?

Alternatively, indulge in some of Spain’s most delicious food at the San Miguel Market, making sure you order a Cortado for that much-needed caffeine kick during your travels.

At least when you go, it will be with a full heart, fuller belly, and knowing you’ve had a kiss of that Spanish sun on your skin.

Who knows? Perhaps you’ll be returning for a full vacation next time!
