I had previously visited Madrid, and on that occasion I bought the tourist travel pass at the airport, one of the best decisions that I made, so it was a no brainer that we would do the same this time. The travel pass offers outstanding...More
Fortunately we were advised about the travel pass prior to our Madrid holiday, so we bought them at the airport because the card covers transport from and to the airport.
We bought weekly cards which covered the Metro, buses, local trains and the city light...More
I am mighty pleased that I read about this before we travelled, as it saved us a small fortune on travel around the city, including to and from the airport. A taxi from the airport to the centre is 30 euros each way. The Madrid...More
After reading a lot of good comments, we decided to take the 'free walking tour' at 11am. We had the luck to meet up with Alba and Jorge who were the best guides one can wish for!! They also took the time to give us...More
We originally signed up for the Sandemans tour and noticed this group gathering for an 11am tour. We had a small group of 4 people on the English tour vs about 30 for the Sandemans tour. Great time with Ines, who walked us everywhere! Try...More

Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street performers, colorful lights, window shopping, restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a collection of plazas interconnected by a network of side streets. Some of these side streets are wide pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as
desired. The iconic Puerta del Sol is the giant crossroads of the city and a must-see attraction at any time of the day. The nearby Plaza Mayor, completely enclosed by historic red buildings, is an ideal place to grab a bite to eat outside, amidst scores of tables and people out for a stroll. Plaza Isabel II (also known as “Opera”) is smaller and a good meeting spot, and the stately Plaza del Oriente is the front yard of the Royal Palace. Centro can be touristy (pickpockets are unfortuately not unheard-of here), crowded, and sometimes gimmicky, but it is also the place to experience classic Madrid.
