My wife and I travelling to Spain in April. She's confused as to what to pack for clothes. All reports seems to vary. Has anyone travelled at this time? Suggestions please help.

    Reports vary because the weather varies. One year's experience is not necessarily useful for the next. Prepare for all variations you heard of, bring clothes that can be combined and worn in layers. An umbrella, a jacket and shoes that survive a bit of rain. And bring, or buy there, a travel-size tube of washing detergent.

    It is true that it may vary a lot...but I think it is going to be warm. We have had a very cold winter, but it is over.

    Maybe some rains, but not cold weather. So I would skip coats and "clothes for cold weather".

    April is a great month to visit Madrid(and the rest of spain). Spring all over the country. I am sure you are going to enjoy a lot!

    Have fun.

    I spent 3 weeks in Madrid last April and some days were fairly cool, so I was really glad I had brought a waterproof spring jacket with me. Other days were really warm and sunny though, so as mentioned before, layers are the best way to go. Hope you enjoy your time in Madrid, it's a fantastic city!

    Dont listen to what a previous poster replied to "What's in style for spring 2009", who said "No boots at that time..."
    Rubbish!
    They were ALL wearing them!!

    Mostly flats/low heels but, if your wife is ok in heels, she'll be fine.
    The centre of Madrid is paved, not cobbled.

    I was there last week, and the temperature was in the twenties.
    I was in shirt-sleeves all day and all night, but the locals were in coats and, like I said, big boots!
