There's still lots to do: take a stroll through Barrio de Salamanca and explore the world behind art at National Archaeological Museum of Spain.

Plan my Madrid trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Melbourne, Australia to Madrid is an approximately 26- hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and train; or do a combination of bus and flight. You'll gain 9 hours traveling from Melbourne to Madrid due to the time zone difference.
