The Madrid area guide

The Spanish capital of Madrid is recognised as a major global city. Not only due to the native football teams of Atlético and Real Madrid and the Royal Palace of King Felipe VI – but it was found to be 14th most liveable city in the world in Monocle’s 2016 list. This is down to the high economic output of the city, and in turn the quality of life of its residents. An average furnished studio rent is approximately 564€ - 850€ for normal to an expensive area. However, this clearly comes with the high quality of living. Villa prices to buy can range from 4 to 7 figures, dependent on size and location.

Sights and attractions

Local activities include the towering Faro de Moncloa viewing platform which was recently reopened in 2015. As your vantage point, you will be able to see all of Madrid, even the Casa de Campo Amusement Park, Warner Theme Park Madrid and even the Aquópolis Villanueva de la Cañada. The latter being the largest water park in the whole of Europe.

In the quiet and peaceful El Retiro Park, you can catch a performance from the Puppet Theatre that all the family would be sure to enjoy. On from that, we have a couple of recommended zoos and animal sanctuaries – Zoo Aquarium and the 14-square-hectare Faunia. This last park provides its inhabitants with various environments specifically suited to their individual needs. These ecosystems range from the jungle to the North Pole!

There are also numerous other tourist activities in Madrid which capitalise on the bustling population as well as its visitors – the Madrid Bus Tour, and the Madrid Card to name a couple of examples. The card gets you into the top museums in Madrid for a discounted price – and there are over 50 of them.

Restaurants and cafes

Those wanting to sample real Spanish food will not be disappointed. In terms of tapas, for croquettes and fish strips try Casa Labra, if you venture as far as fried pig’s ear, go for Bogeda de la Ardosa, or if you have shellfish on your mind, go to Casa del Abuelo for prawns. It is not just tapas that Madrid has to offer however, with there being around 13 Michelin-Starred restaurants in the area, like Lúa, Ramón Freixa Madri or DiverXO.

Step back a century and experience the same dwellings as those at the time by visiting some of Madrid’s oldest restaurants - Lhardy est.1839, Anciano Rey de los Vinos est.1909, Bodega de La Ardosa est.1892 as well as Bar El Pescador est.1892 to name but a few. If they’ve been around this long, they’re definitely serving some good food!

Shops

As you may expect from a capital of a country, Madrid offers a plethora of shops to select from. Go to Chueca and Fuencarral for the most in-trend clothes, for the latest tech and jewellery try Gran Vía. For the more luxurious shopper, you belong in Barrio de Salamanca. For the bargain seeker, check out El Rastro to haggle your way to a deal. For the market maniac, head to Chamartín Market which has the entire range – think of a product, it will be there, and with over 100 stalls it should be.

Travel

If you travel by aeroplane, there are 2 airports to choose from – Madrid-Barajas and Cuatro Vientos Airports. From these airports you can catch the Metro to wherever you need to go, or take one of the inner-city bus routes. Car rental is available, however, if you are staying within the metropolitan area covered by the public transport there really is no need.

Of the many bike rentals in Madrid, one stands out more than the rest – the electric bike rental service from BiciMAD, costing around 2€ for the first hour of your 2 wheeled adventure around Madrid. It certainly stands out as a good initiative – except weren’t bicycles already emission-free? It beats going around on a Segway, though.
