Customer Travel Tip: I enjoyed the Prado Museum, where I prioritized the Spanish exhibitions - when travelling on a budget, there are some periods during evening where entrance is for free

Liked: A really nice atmosphere

Disliked: Not really that much, My least favorite thing was when we went out, where the guides told us to go to a club at 2am to avoid waiting in line, but still waiting for an hour and then when we finally got in, it was so crammed we could barely move
