... a power nap. After the nap, we took the subway to the meeting point Chueca plaza for the Tapas tour. It was definitely worth it and I would recommend doing the tour to anyone who goes to Madrid . It was through Sandeman’s neweurope company. For 14 Euro, you get two free drinks and unlimited food to eat for 2 hours. This also gives you a great chance to meet tons of people.
