Centro: Madrid's historical and geographical heart, is filled with winding medieval streets and centuries-old architecture that stun the eye. Despite being quite easy to walk through, Centro presents a challenge for driving enthusiasts.

Retiro: boasts of the city’s most lavish park, three internationally acclaimed art museums, and deluxe hotels. Every weekend, both locals and tourists flock to the park to appreciate its stunning botanical gardens, tranquil lakes, and scenic trails.

Lavapiés: is a trendy, multicultural area. It's home to the renowned flea market, El Rastro, and is a quick stroll away from Madrid's top art museums and Retiro Park. Lavapiés is also known for its foodie spots and has a varied mix of trendy bars and quirky restaurants
