    What a amazing experience to visit the Royal Palace in Madrid. The views are amazing. Learning about the history of Spanish royal family is amazing I would recommend that you buy your tickets in advance otherwise you will have to wait in a very long queue.

    The Palace is amazing and a must see in Madrid. The "fast access" tickets is not skip the line - there are 2 lines at the Entry - one for those with tickets and one lines for people needing to buy tickets. Not a big deal but definitely pre- purchase tickets as you get in much faster. Self tour with Audio guide was great as you can do your own pace and go around the groups on guided tours.

    Palace is definitely something I’d recommend to others. Beautiful building & the interior is amazing. Would recommend pre booking tickets - when we went, we walked straight in, no queuing, whilst the queue for non ticket holders was quite long & slow moving. You can take photos of the outside & of the staircase as you go in but not of the actual rooms which was quite frustrating - the Guides are pretty hot on this too so beware you don’t get caught! Ticket price on here seemed reasonable for the non guided tour. Took us roughly an hour to walk around.
