A lot of people flying into Europe from the Americas, first land in Madrid and wait for their connecting flight. But not everyone makes use of their potential layover in Madrid. As Spain’s capital and largest city, Madrid is a great place to learn about Spain. The architecture in Madrid is truly a sight to behold. And, of course, Madrid houses one of the world’s most famous museums, the Prado.
Exploring Europe during long layover flights is a great way to see those extra cities. Maybe you are worried you may never ever make it back to Europe or that particular city? So, if you have at least a 6-hour layover (maybe even 5 hours if you are feeling game) and visa requirements allow why not leave the airport and enjoy a new city.
