Many of the top museums offer free admission for selected periods during the week. I recommend checking the various cultural institutes’ websites for details and making sure to arrive early to avoid the long queues.

Spain holds innumerate opportunities for student tours to gain a thoroughly in-depth insight into travel and tourism and a visit to the capital, Madrid, will no doubt present students with some excellent subject matter. As Madrid is Spain's largest city there's plenty to attract visiting cultural tourists with art museums, such as - Museo del Prado, Museo Reina Sofía  and the Thyssen-Bornemisza, forming what is commonly known as the Golden Triangle of Art.

Cultural heritage of a different nature comes in the guise of Las Ventas which is the largest bull ring in Spain and holds a capacity crowd of some 25,000. This controversial pastime is quintessentially Spanish and travel and tourism student tours will really benefit from finding out more about the history and the future of bullfighting in Madrid.

Sport of a less-bloody kind can be found on the terraces of the city's 2 most popular football teams, Atletico and Real Madrid, both of whom hold a passion and a rivalry that is guaranteed to get the pulses racing of any visiting tourist. A student tour to either of the clubs' stadiums presents an excellent means of learning about the marketing and the attraction of these 2 sporting heavyweights.

Aside from the dedication to football, Madrid is also a deeply religious city and pilgrimages to the churches of San Nicolas de los Servitas, San Pedro el Real and San Jerónimo el Real will no doubt open up many questions regarding Catholicism and its role in the capital's tourism industry.

With more green areas and aligned trees than anywhere else in Europe, university tours of Madrid will have no problem seeking a place to study and parks such as Casa de Campo and Buen Retiro  provide plenty of opportunities to sit and ponder as the whole world passes by.

From immigration and the green economy to museums, churches and the HQ of the United Nations World Tourism Organization - there are a million and one experiences to be devoured on a travel and tourism university trip to Madrid.
