Emirates holidays says Hola to Madrid!


Emirates Holidays has introduced a range of tailor-made options to Spain’s lively capital following the launch of Emirates airline’s direct flights from Dubai to Madrid.


John Felix, Senior Vice President of Emirates Holidays said, “With its exceptional nightlife and cuisine, world-class museums and art galleries, and designer shopping, Madrid is an exciting city to discover and explore. Emirates Holidays is delighted to have Madrid among the wide choice of destinations it has on offer. And with the launch of Emirates’ direct flights to the city, we have put together a range of special packages that will provide the perfect gateway to the best Spain has to offer.”  


‘Experience the Essence of Spain’ 

Madrid is brimming with undiscovered treasures for visitors. One of the largest cities in Europe, it is often described as one of the most open and welcoming. 


To get the most out of your Madrid flight, a must-see is the elegant 15th century Plaza Mayor which has hosted the city’s famous festivals for hundreds of years. Become immersed in the vibrant street life and pavement cafes of the Puerta del Sol before visiting the majestic ‘Golden Triangle of Art’ - a small area in the heart of Madrid that holds some of the world’s greatest art treasures at The Prado, the Thyssen-Bornemisza and the Reina Sofia museums. 


When it comes to dining, sample the wonderful Spanish tapas and hearty home cooking in wood-panelled restaurants in the Huertas, Sol and Latina districts. Madrid’s nightlife is legendary so take a siesta before joining the all-night revelry and salsa dancing, or watching a dance performance in one of the intimate restaurant-theatres in the Huertas district tablaos. 


Shopping is a must in Madrid and the fashion boutiques of the Salamanca district showcase Europe’s top designers contrasting perfectly with the informality of the fascinating Latina’s El Rastro Flea Market. 


Family fun and entertainment are certainly not forgotten. Children will enjoy the Zoo-Aquarium, Faunia Nature Park, Wax Museum, Amusement Park, Warner Bros-Madrid Theme Park. Or take them along for a tour at the Santiago Bernabéu Football Stadium.
