Madrid is really one of the cultural capitals of the world. There are about forty museums, the most famous of which, the Prado, and the new Thyssen museums are within walking distance of each other. A part day trip to the legal world of Madrid is included in the cost of the program.

The boulevards (such as the Grand Via), and plazas (such as the Puerta del Sol), offer enjoyable strolling and visiting at a myriad of outdoor cafes. Shopping can be done in modern department stores or bargains found at the Rastro bazaar on Sundays. Retiro Park is huge, and offers miles of shaded walkways, and a variety of entertainment, from lavish Flamenco dancing to strolling musicians and artists who will sketch one's portrait in a matter of minutes.
