first day in Madrid sights?

Jump to last reply

Hi. We will be spending a week in Spain in late May. The first 3 days will be spent in Sevilla and then we arrive for the remaining 4 in Madrid. By the time we check into our apt, it will be at least 4pm. We are renting near the Calle Brava.
The next day we will do the Essential Walking Tour and have a day to get the lay of the land. What would you suggest we do our first day, given the late arrival? I was thinking of walking through Retiro and then going to the Prado for the free admission of 6-8 and then a tapas crawl through our neighborhood. I don't want to walk the Gran Via. Would be happy for a good neighborhood walk...thanks.
