So for some specifics.
We started with two days in Madrid, staying at the Hotel Villa Real, an excellent location near the Prado and other museums and parks. Our best meals actually were at the hotel, which had a great bar -- best Sangria we've ever had was mixed by two different bartenders. No bottled, pre-mixed stuff there.
At the Villa Real, we had a lunch with a glass of Champagne (the real thing, French) on the house and this vegetable saute, just what I needed after a dreadful night on a Delta Airlines flight.
(NOTE: They served up the WORST AIRLINE MEAL EVER, along with execrable boxed wine. Boxed wine on an international flight! I asked if I could buy something else & they said, that's all they had. The pits.)
