As a city, Madrid has just about everything in its favour; vitality, vibrancy, a hot climate, culture, as well as all the attributes of big city life. It tends to retain a constant high inland temperature and is ideal for sun seekers who also desire shopping, restaurants and entertainment. Take advantage of our car hire in Madrid and travel to the Bernabeu Stadium, home of Real Madrid, and then visit the abundance of galleries including the Prado and Thyssen-Bornemisza Museums. Hiring a car in Madrid is readily available from Hertz at Madrid Airport and a number of other locations.
Madrid is a real must for any culture vulture, and galleries like the Prado Museum substantiate its claim to be one of Europe's most well adorned cities. Every great city has a great museum and Madrid proves this aspect of its heritage with the Prado Museum. Here you can find plenty of Goya along with Titian, Rubens and Velazquez. The Royal Palace of Madrid further showcases Madrid's illustrious and grand heritage to rank alongside Europe's great cities. If you're hiring a car in Madrid you may wish to try and park near the Calle de Mozart shopping centre close to the Metro station. it's around a 25 minute walk from the city centre, although the metro stations mean you can attempt your own park and ride schemes if you do find free parking. it's often best to find a hotel or apartment which allocates you a space.
In the evening you might want to absorb the balmy city atmosphere and take up a seat at a street café, or possibly visit one of the classy yet rustic restaurants which are abundant in the local area. If you rent a car in Madrid, you''d do well to visit the Collado Villalba which is a much more rural area just north of the city via the A6.
