Apologies if this query has popped up many times already but I was hoping for specific information on restrictions on the May 1 weekend in Madrid. We're planning on flying in late on Thur 1 May and staying until the Monday night (5 May). I believe there'll be no problem getting the metro in from airport on arrival, but I have these main questions:
On Friday 2 May, will all the shops be closed? What about many of the sights/attractions and cafes?
We were hoping to do a day-trip to Toledo, possibly on the Sunday, but will trains be a nightmare as everyone is travelling?
Basically, as the flights are the same price for the prior weekend (24-28 April), are we better off booking the late April weekend instead? Thanks in advance.
