Follow Ronaldo to Madrid

June 12, 2009

It seems like Madrid is the place to be. After news that Brazilian star Kaka is soon to be joined in the Spanish capital by Manchester United forward Cristiano Ronaldo, the world's gaze is turning towards this lively and cultural city.

Much has been written - and indeed will continue to be written throughout the summer, no doubt - about the allure this magnificent city has on the world's leading footballers. Certainly the incredible sums of money offered by the mighty Real Madrid is inviting in itself, but for those not offered a contract to become one of Florentino Perez's 'galacticos', what is there to see in the city?

From the rich art galleries - such as the Museo del Prado - to spectacular architecture, a relaxed cafe culture to a thriving nightlife, Madrilenos (the citizens of Madrid) enjoy a cosmopolitan city that is certain to live long in the memory.

Flights from London to Madrid are can be booked from as little as £26.99 one way with easyJet, based on departures in July 2009. So why not back your bags and make a move to the Spanish capital? You'll certainly be with some glittering company.
