Enjoying amazing holidays in Madrid can cost a lot. But it is possible to organize a trip in the Spanish capital and go to visit museums, historical building and other interesting places in an affordable way.

First, the best way to make tourism in Madrid, and especially when you travel with your family or friends, is to rent a cheap apartment for days in Madrid. This accommodation option is very practical and it also allows you to make your own food which is without a doubt cheaper than going to a restaurant.
