Every major city at home and abroad has the requisite theme and amusement parks and zoos. Madrid is no different. And while you can visit those and have a great time, we recommend you skip the standard to-dos and instead, experience an authentic slice of the Spanish capital.

Spend the majority of your time inside some brilliant museums, outside in some of Madrid's most glorious public parks, and by exploring the city's rich soccer culture at its two biggest and most famous clubs.
