Situated in the heart of the Iberian Peninsula, Madrid is one of Europe’s greatest cities. Tourism has rapidly developed over the last 20 years. In 2017 the city attracted 6.7 million international visitors vs. 3.7 million in 2001. The city that is home to two major football clubs often sees lots of European football fans coming to its city.
Madrid is most frequently visited in the European summer. While the sun warms up the city millions of tourists stroll its streets. Best time to travel is in Spring when temperatures are bearable, and the largest crowds have yet to find their way to the Spanish capital. During the busiest months it is best to buy skip-the-line tickets for the Royal Palace or to escape the city by going on a day tour.
