Begin your first full day in Madrid at one of the city's renowned museums in its Golden Triangle of Art. Choose between Museo del Prado, Madrid's best-known museum with an immense collection of classical art; or Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia, where Picasso's impassioned denunciation of war and fascism, Guernica, resides; or Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza, offering an eclectic display of art from one of the most important private collections in the world.
Midday, discover the city's barrios, which range from hipster to posh and literary. Pop in and out of corner shops and visit landmarks of personal interest such as the opera house, royal palace and rooftop vantage points.
At night, perform a concert in a fabulous venue such as La Almudena, Madrid's Cathedral, the spectacular temple of Real Oratorio or any number of musical theaters where public performances are welcomed and well attended.
