    After the Foro Italico decided to visit Madrid going last May to see the international tennis championship. Take place in this large complex called Caja Magica, available by metro + bus (upon return we went by taxi ...) in that place enough in the suburbs compared to Madrid. Nice complex, roof that closes when it rains, very nice, well structured inside Centre Court for the little shops and stands (stands or not), I'd say even better than our Foro italico (at least if it rains is played ....). We visited the outdoor courts.

  • The facilities are good. But for the price maybe a little loose locker rooms. Bind you with the annual bonus and if you want to unsubscribe you pay penalty.

Where to stay in Madrid

The Spanish capital is known for its array of distinct neighborhoods each with its own appeal. An affordable and easy-to-navigate metro system, which makes it is easy to get around Madrid gives you more flexibility in choosing where to stay. Perhaps the most popular choice is Puerta del Sol, the heart of the city center and one of the main tourist attractions with its numerous shops, affordable hotels, and restaurants. Close by is Gran Via street, one of the city's main arteries, which is also home to a number of hotels. A short walk from here is Plaza España where the city's most iconic landmarks lie, including the Royal Palace and the Teatro Royal. For somthing outside the traditional tourist areas, consider staying in La Latina or Malasaña, two bohemian neighborhoods that offer a wide range of eclectic shops, quaint cafes, and lively bars.
