Madrid city tour Video

The video starts with an amazing airplane view while landing to Spain's capital. I've had several stopovers in Madrid during my trips to the other side of the Atlantic ocean. On one of them i had enough time , and i thought it was a good idea to get on a double decker bus and enjoy a panoramic tour around Madrid. You just put on your earphones, listen to the recorded commentaries and enjoy the streets , the historical sites like the Royal Palace , the modern skyscrapers and the plazas. You can hop-on , hop-off as many times as you like so you can explore Madrid at your own pace.

Thanks for this! I've spent several weeks in Madrid a looong time ago, 1970 to be exact but I still remember it as a vibrant beautiful city full of incredibly warm and hospitable people.

I'm glad you liked it! All my visits to Madrid were stopovers on my way to-from Mexico or the Dominican republic. I would love to spend more time there someday.
