How to spend a One day layover in each of Madrid and Barcelona

Jump to last reply

We have one day in each of Madrid and Barcelona at the start and end of an amazing two week vacation in Morocco and Majorca. Not enough time to see a lot obviously. Still we would like to get a taste of these cities. My husband has been to these places before- maybe ten- twenty years ago, and its my first time. We are into culture and history but do not feel the need to visit art museums and churches. We love to eat, drink, walk around, people watch, go off the beaten path. We are pretty fit/ mobile so could handle a busy day of walking- but since we will likely be jet lagged in Madrid and exhausted from our other travels in Barcelona .... Don't want to be too aggressive. In addition to sights, looking for hotel recs or areas that are central and would be most efficient given our limited time. Clean and safe are super impt. Other than that, above budget but can't afford luxury. Simple, clean and nice is our style. Thanks in advance.
