    Welcome to my Trip Advisor (TA) Trip List 'combo' - I hope that they prove useful to you.

    This TL covers my trip to Madrid and INTRODUCES ONLY 2 separate day-trips I made from Madrid to Toledo and Segovia which are covered in their own, dedicated/separate TL.

    You can access my other Trip Lists by clicking my TA 'name' link which is located just above the title of this Trip List.

  • 2. Madrid - Introduction and What I Visited
    Madrid

    The link above is to the main TA webpage for the Madrid attractions, from where you have rated-lists and links.

    This Trip List will specifically cover Madrid, BUT I include separate 'Annex Trip Lists' links to cover the 2 separate day-trips I made from Madrid to Toledo and Segovia.

    I went to the lively city of Madrid (and the more sedate towns of Toledo and Segovia) in October, for 7 full-days to visit/sightsee attractions and the day before/after for travelling, mainly because that time of year usually offers a far less 'oppressive' climate than a visit during the Summer period. In Summer the city might be a little 'quieter' than normal, but that's because not only do the locals go on holiday but the day/night temperatures can, for most, be difficult to bear !

    I'm not sure any time of year can guarantee shorter queues to the major, often very popular, attractions such as the Prado Museum....BUT even I found queuing for a short period was worth it for the superb Prado 'experience' !

    Whilst the October climate was still really quite pleasant and there were several warm/sunny days, there were some other days when it rained quite heavily - so even if you plan to be inside museums/shops (but do note that Madrid does boast quite a few enticing outside spaces to enjoy) an umbrella will still be required for the queues to some attractions you might encounter !

    There is a lot on offer in Madrid and it is much more of a permanently 'inhabited' city than some other European capitals I could mention, so aside from the notable day-trips you can easily make (such as the 2 I did) the Madrid nightlife is guaranteed to be very lively with an enormous choice of places on offer for you to 'frequent' ! So, unsurprisingly, the city has an extensive range of public transport methods to choose from BUT, if you stay in one of the many city-centre hotels, it is possible to enjoy your Madrid 'experience' mostly on foot as the travelling distances are relatively quite short and there is plenty to see/do on your way around...

    I found Madrid, Toledo and Segovia to be a very affordable places to holiday in. Attraction entry fees ranged from about EU2 to EU9 and many offered free visit periods/days and as an example, a cup of coffee with some kind of pastry could be had in the majority of cafes for barely more than EU2.

    I have 2 observations from my visit which stuck in my mind as they were so 'unusual'. Firstly, if you're an English-only speaker you should not take it for granted that you will be able to 'cope' as you may be accustomed to when on holiday; I didn't find many local people in Madrid who had even a basic grasp of English. So, like I didn't (but not due to conceit, it's just for me in most countries I've visited it hasn't been a problem before), you will need to brush up on your Spanish quite a bit ! Secondly, I found the prevalence of smoking around the outside city spaces by locals to be considerably higher than I have been accustomed to; a quick check later showed that Spain as a whole has the highest percentage of smokers of anywhere in Europe....

    With 2 days taken up with those Toledo/Segovia trips, I found it easy to fill-up my other 5 days in Madrid but, as with my trip to Vienna late 2012, I don't think I left with much on a 'still to do' list for a later visit - unlike my Florence trip in early 2012....

    The normal travel 'rule' applies to Madrid, namely that any time you can set aside to investigate matters and then formulate even a basic outline 'visit plan' will be time well spent and an idea about the likely 'better weather' days is crucial if you plan to visit somewhere like Segovia as I found it to be much more of an 'outside' attraction than Madrid or Toledo. So, along with reading this Trip List and my reviews, quizzing people on the TA Forums (and reading other reviews of course) and checking the weather forecast can be rewarding in that respect !

    I took full advantage of my guide books and hotel-provided city map/Internet access to check the mostly excellent/informative attraction websites, so never needed to find a Madrid tourist information office - but did make use of the very helpful maps/info on offer in both Toledo and Segovia..

    I am writing individual TA reviews for the hotel I stayed at and all the attractions I visited - it seems I have to state the obvious and mention that my reviews contain my opinions and the list of the places I visited is not definitive.....

    In this TL I usually give each attraction I visited at least 2 dedicated sections, the first starts by providing a link to the TA individual review of mine which exist in the normal way on each TA 'attraction' webpage.

    That first section may then complement the separate review with any relevant general information, but for my opinions on the attraction and more information on what I discovered whilst there you obviously need to read that TA separate review !

    Any remaining dedicated sections for each attraction then deal with specific visitor information (eg travel/location tips, entrance times/costs); I usually provide a link to the official website and explain how to navigate it. I might also add a section linking to any relevant viewable media to finalise or supplement what I posted with the review (sometimes because it didn't get added by TA !) or my visitor information.

    Those 'Viewable Media' sections relating to my dedicated online media albums, which add photos/video I mention in my information sections which are either difficult to connect to TA webpages or were 'blocked' on submission (eg example images of artwork)....

    However, before those attraction sections I will continue after this introduction with sections containing information about how I got from Madrid-Barajas airport to my centrally-located hotel, public transport, general comments about the attractions, links to my Trip Lists for my day-trips Toledo/Segovia and then the hotel I stayed at.

    Do please note that reviews cannot be edited once posted, so I cannot update them to reflect the situation regarding subsequent problems with associated submissions (for example)....

    Those individual reviews are the place to go to view whatever photos/video related to them that I have contributed to TA.

    My Trip List comprises those dedicated sections for each attraction I visited (in MY order of 'popularity'), but so you know what I visited and how each of my 7 days panned-out here's my 'visit diary' (with occasional explanatory annotations) :

  • 3. To/From Madrid-Barajas Airport
    http://www.madrid-airport.info/transportation.html

    The above link takes you to the dedicated transportation webpage on the Madrid-Barajas airport website.

    I'm not sure how accurate it is, especially as I don't think it correctly describes the 'Airport Express' service I decided to use and cover in the next section...

  • 4. 'Airport Express'
    http://www.emtmadrid.es/lineaaeropuerto/index.html

    Arriving tired, during the busy daytime with luggage, if I can I usually opt for a coach service from an airport as they minimize the hassle of pulling your suitcase up/down/around (ie like you will have to do on the Metro) and also allow you to get a decent first view of your destination !

    For me, Madrid was no exception as (by plan) my hotel was well-located for public transport access and near to the 'Airport Express' bus service operated by the city operator EMT. Arriving at the Atocha bus station (adjacent to the railway station) it was a very short walk across the main road to catch a local EMT bus which took me to within 50m of my hotel....

    The above link takes you to the dedicated website for that service, but do note that as of time of writing only the Spanish-language version can be accessed.

    Website navigation is simple and all the information you could need is there.

    The service is relatively cheap, regular, efficient and has some handily-located stops BUT do note that from my experience the service is not quite like most dedicated airport coach services, as it operates more like a traditional bus service as it leans towards running at the published time intervals - rather than the time itself ie when a bus arrives (even if 'early') it will leave as soon as those at the stop alight/get on, and not wait until the timetabled time....!

    You should also note that as the service uses buses converted to have large internal luggage racks, space for passengers is relatively limited - so you should not assume that you will be 100% 'guaranteed' to get on the first bus that arrives (although even when very busy I had no great problem)....

    Also, whilst there is an electronic sign showing the stops I found that it (like I found with the EMT city buses !) was occasionally 'out of date' - a crucial snag to be aware of as on returning to Barajas airport I found the terminals to be short on signage, meaning there is the potential for you to alight at the wrong terminal !

    So, make sure you know where you are and have a timetable handy for cross-checking, as I also found that most other people were similarly 'clueless' of their precise location and, due to my aforementioned time/language constraints, you cannot rely on being able to quickly ask around about if you're at your desired stop !

    Please don't get the wrong impression of this service. My warnings are just caveats from my experience, as I'm trying to help you avoid any arrival/departure nightmares at a time when most of us are loaded with luggage and in unfamiliar surroundings; for me, this bus service was far preferable to arriving by multiple Metro rides....

  • 5. Madrid Airport Express Shuttle Bus - by MadridMan.com
    http://madridman.com/blog-madrid/2012/01/madrid-airport-express-shuttl...

    This English-language webpage presents information/photos on the 'Airport Express' very well.

  • 6. Madrid Public Transport
    http://www.ctm-madrid.es/

    The above link takes you to the consolidated Madrid public transport website.

    The English-language version can be accessed as long as you have 'Cookies' enabled for it..

    The site is easily navigated and contains all the information you could want, including a handy 'Trip Planner' facility.

    If like me, you will probably not use public transport that much BUT, if for no other reason, there are some worthwhile attractions that are a bit distant from the centre justifying use.

    I bought the discounted 10-ticket option (which is just one ticket which gets stamped for each individual journey you use it for) - that more than satisfied my needs for the full 7 days...

    I found all services to be clean/efficient but usually very busy. Metro is obviously quicker, but often less favourable for your start/stop points, when compared to the slower bus service....

    I could imagine that riding the Metro would be something of a nightmare in hot/sweltering conditions and for bus journeys my 'location' caveats mentioned in the earlier 'Airport Express' section are also applicable here !

  • 7. Madrid Attractions
    http://www.esmadrid.com/en/portal.do

    WARNING - Even official websites such as that I link above can be infected with Viruses/Trojans !

    The above link takes you to the (at time of writing Trojans-infected) official English-language version Madrid Tourist Board website.

    'Infections' aside, this site (along with most dedicated-websites for Madrid attractions) can be horrifically out of date.

    The best advice I can give you is to meld their content, along with info/advice you can get from TA Forums/reviews !

    -------

    Many of the official attraction websites (which I provide links to in their related 'Visitor Information' section) are Spanish-only.

    If it's of any help, to properly understand the content of those websites I use an online translator, which converts the whole webpage to your desired language and then lets you navigate it like normal - translating each subsequent webpage that you view.

    I'm sure that there are others, but I use :

    www.bing.com/translator

    -------

    I often took advantage of the available free-visit periods (which range from a few hours on specific days to entire days) - usually for the smaller, less-visited/more 'specialised' attractions.

    However, I found that free-visit periods were (rightly !) often VERY popular - with enormous queues.

    So, along with the hassle of planning your visit around them (which often clash), sometimes it's worthwhile 'splashing out' eg later you will read about the excellent entrance/guide book deal offered at the Prado which I think is a 'no-brainer' !

    As a result I found no worth in buying the multi-attraction 'Madrid Card'; I paid for entrance in perhaps 3 attractions of those that normally charge....

    *** To ensure hassle-free entrance for any offered free-visit period, ensure that you carry a photo ID card (such as your driving licence, obviously a passport will do the trick but I think they're best left in the hotel safe !) to prove your EU 'nationality'/identity. Some attractions have no 'qualifying' restrictions, others do - but don't advertise them !

    As mentioned in my intro, due to the above issue and (for example) unusual/differing opening times any time you can give to visit-planning will be well-spent to maximise your 'Madrid enjoyment' !

  • 12. Visitor Information for Museo Nacional del Prado (Prado Museum)
    https://www.museodelprado.es/en/

    The link above is to the official English-language website of the Museo Nacional del Prado (Prado Museum).

    The webpage linked above is the place to start, with 2 main ways to access info :

    Collections
    Achieved via the left-hand text-links which when a specific term is selected opens a new webpage.

    Admission
    Achieved via the right-hand SPANISH text-links below the "Visit the Museum" title.
    When a specific term is selected a new webpage opens in Spanish only !

    The best term to select is the first : "Tu Visita".

    *** If you can't be bothered to read my review you should at least note my ticket recommendation comments :

    "I bought the ticket/museum guide combination ticket which offers excellent value at EU23; considering that entrance alone costs EU14 and the guide book (which is a very hefty effort) is priced at EU20-odd, you will hopefully agree ! And you don't necessarily have to lug the book around with you as it is provided in the museum gift shop when you decide to go there and show your ticket - marvellous !"
