Madrileños are known for their laid–back way of life, thanks to midday siestas, leisurely late lunches and rooftop–terrace hops. But don’t expect to get much sleep after dark: The crowds don’t flock to the famously buzzing nightclubs until 1 a.m. or later. By day, stroll through the Golden Triangle of Art – three of the world’s finest museums practically side by side.
