hi guys,
i'll be traveling to Madrid for 2 days.
My travel plan is as follows:

Day 1 - Mumbai-Madrid

Arrive Madrid. check in your hotel. Later, enjoy an open bus tour. This is a fantastic way to see all of the major sights Madrid has to offer. With two routes and 1 ticket, you can explore all the attractions at your leisure. And with 33 stops covering all the main attractions such as Royal Palace, Almudena Cathedral and Columbus Square among others, this tour provides the perfect introduction to the city. Overnight in Madrid.

Day 2-Madrid

Madrid The day is at leisure or you can opt for a full day visit to Toledo, one of Europe’s Oldest cities on the Best of Toledo tour. Enjoy a walking tour and see its many beautiful sites including the amazing 13th century cathedral, medieval castle, synagogue and of course its stunning El Greco masterpieces. Overnight in Madrid.

Day 3 - Madrid - Barcelona (3 hrs)

This morning, travel to Barcelona.

on day 2, i want to visit Santiago Bernabau and Museum. Can anyone suggest anything else to do on day 2?

Hmm, I never see Columbus Square (Plaza de Colon), as a huge sight. I think you should go by foot to see the city center. Plaza Major (no bus can take you there, they are not allowed.), and take a stroll through La latina, See plaza de Villa. etc. If you like arts, the Prado and Reina Sofia Museums are waiting as well.

If you opt for the day in Toledo, you will have to calculate that you will be there for most of the day.

thanks herr bert..
i'm not really keen on going to toledo..
rather than i'd like to go to Santiago Bernabau to see Real Madrid's museum and stadium tour.
so i'll have the whole day with me.
what else can you suggest?

It depends completely on what you are into but Toledo is one of the most beautiful cities of Spain and the Bernabeu is... just a football stadium. But it's your choice!
