Top 5 Day Trips From Madrid
Madrid long weekender by Giedre
Madrid is a great city in the centre of Spain. You can spend days wondering around the traditional Spanish streets, relaxing in the parks, swimming in the open top pools and drinking and eating to your heart’s content. But, you can expand on your Madrid experience by taking a quick and easy day trip to one of the surrounding towns which also have plenty to offer.
A Weekend Break in Seville
Weekend escapes are a great way to really take advantage of a four day working week, as we at Four Day Week Ltd try to do as much as possible. Most of the places that we visit are within a 2-3 hour flight from the UK and prices when you are travelling on a Friday or Monday are generally much lower than the traditional bank holiday scramble.

Madrid is a city which I know pretty well and there are plenty of hidden cafes and restaurants, hilltop hideaways and basement bars that offer great value for money. So, if you want to explore the Spanish capital on a tight budget, stick with me…
Spain is one of top three visited countries in the world. With cities such as Barcelona, Madrid and Seville in addition to the golden beaches which surround the majority of the country it’s easy to see why.
