Although the city’s residents take their nightlife very seriously – and often party hard well into the next morning – there are endless things to do in Madrid no matter the time.

Wonderful weather practically all year makes it a great city for outdoor activities and things to do, and expansive parks like Buen Retiro and Parque Oeste are as perfect for picnics and lazy afternoon strolls as they are for jogging, biking, and other athletic pursuits.

Landmark museums like the Prado house some of Europe’s most important art, catching a flamenco show is a signature event available at venues all over town, and countless plazas offer a relaxing spot to while away the hours and soak up the sun.

Shopping is also stunning in Madrid, with vast flea markets, high-end boutiques, and a thousand-lifetimes-supply of swanky shoes. Take advantage of those afternoon siestas, you’re going to need them in this town, especially once denizens start flooding out for Happy Hour in advance of another long and festive night.
