Budgets in Europe: Madrid

September 21, 2016

As part of our budgets in Europe series we’ve taken it in turns to focus in on different cities to see how they compare against each other on a budget level. This week we look at the capital of Spain – the beautiful Madrid. Renowned for Tapas and sangria, with great transport links, it would be a real shame never to experience the city. Even better, it’s very affordable! The currency here is Euro, so super easy to work out…
