      Discovering the city that will host Juventus on Wednesday night in the UEFA Champions League.

      UEFA Champions League away games are a great way to see the most beautiful corners of Europe while waiting for the match at Wanda Metropolitano against Atletico. 

      Let's find out what there is to see in Madrid.

      A city of art and history

      Madrid is a city in constant evolution, always on the move. It's one, where you can't get bored, and a capital that encompasses history and art, sport and nature.

      The Prado Museum is one of the most important in the world. To admire it in the best way, you have to dedicate several hours to it, given its size. There are unique works on display. Museum enthusiasts cannot miss the Reina Sofia (there is Picasso's Guernica) and the Thyssen-Bornemisza.

      But one of the most beautiful things to do in Madrid is to walk, to discover all the beauties. The Royal Palace is a must: it dates back to 1764 and stands on the ruins of the ancient residence of the royal family, destroyed by a fire dated 1734. A few meters away is the Cathedral of Almudena, which offers a really impressive glance.

      The pulsating heart of the Spanish capital is Puerta del Sol, a reference point for many young people, which holds one of the symbols of the city, the famous bear that bites a strawberry tree (madroño). Not far away is the splendid Plaza Mayor, a royal square that once housed the Madrid market.

      If you are fond of parks, you can't miss the "El Retiro" with the Crystal Palace inside, a building surrounded by an artificial lake much appreciated by tourists and local inhabitants.

      THE STADIUM: WANDA METROPOLITANO

      Starting from the 2017/2018 season, the Wanda Metropolitano has become the new home of Atletico Madrid, which until then, had been playing its home matches at the Vicente Calderon. Ranked by the UEFA with four stars (the maximum), it hosted the last edition of the Champions League final won by Liverpool against Tottenham. Located in the San Blas-Canillejas area, east of the capital, the facility can boast a capacity of 67,703 spectators. The stadium was inaugurated on 16 September 2017, on the occasion of the fourth La Liga match day between Atletico Madrid and Malaga, in the presence of the King of Spain Felipe VI.
