Madrid travel tips

1) Avoid Usera, one of the most unsafe areas of Madrid

Madrid is a metropolis, and its outskirts can be unsafe for tourists. Usera in the south is considered one of the most dangerous areas. You should not go there for a walk alone, especially in the evenings.

2) Relax outdoors in one of Madrid's central parks

Madrid is known for its green areas. The two main parks that are located within the central area are El Retiro and Casa de Campo. Spend time there like a local, playing sports or sipping a cup of coffee while soaking up the sun.

3) During siesta, cafes and restaurants in Madrid are closed, and dinners start after 21:00
