      5D/4N Itinerary and best neighborhood to stay in?

      Madrid Mar 15, 2015 at 8:53 PM

      Hi all, I'll be in Madrid for 5 days/ 4 nights last week of March, and I'm looking for suggestions for three things:

      1. what is the one must-do day trip- toledo or?
      2. where I should stay? I'm interested in the usual- safe, quiet at night, central to markets and local designer shopping, as well easy access to public transportation. I'm in my 30s and would like to experience a neighborhood that's slightly upscale/ hip, as opposed to a student scene.
      3. I'll be heading to Provence after that. Should I take a train to experience the scenery, and if so which service line should I check out?

      We will travel to Madrid in April and hope to watch a Real Madrid football match. I searched the official website and but they only have VIP (Euro 200+) tickets left. I just wonder if there is other trust worthy ticket company or website that I can purchase some regular tickets. Thanks a lot!

    • Madrid attractions and day trips

      Madrid Mar 11, 2015 at 7:55 AM

      I'm going to Madrid next week. I'll have 5 full days. Do you think I can see everything and enjoy the city in 3 days and the rest 2 days I can go to Toledo and Segovia? I know I wanna go to Toldo for sure.... Is segovia worth it too? I heard there's a beautiful castle which was Disney's inspiration.
      For Toledo is it better to go with a bus and saves money (or maybe I can see view from the ride). Where do I buy tickets, and can I do it on the same day on the spot?
      .In Madrid I want to see all the plazas, 2 museums (Prado and sofia), retro park, the palace, gran via,el restro market on sunday. and maybe temple of debod and cable ride If I have a 4th day in Madrid, maybe I can go to visit Real madrid's Stadium?
      Also... can you recommend me for a good place to see a flamenco show? (but something affordable) I also wanted to go to see a bullfight but I understand the season starts only on march 29...
      Thanks for any help!

      Question about bus stops near San Lorenzo de El Escorial...

      by Drugness Online Now Mar 2, 2009 at 10:52 AM

      Hello everyone
      I've been doing some research on public transport in and around San Lorenzo de El Escorial and i'm looking at this bus stop called 'Cruce Cuelgamuros' which is serviced by Bus 664 from Madrid. Now i see that Bus 660 from Plaza de Gracia in San Lorenzo de El Escorial goes to bus stop 'Valle de los caidos o Cruce Cuelgamuros'.
      Can i assume correctly that these bus stops are one and the same?
      That being about 4 km walk from the Valley of the Fallen?
      Is this where the entrance gate is located?
      Thanks everyone

      A good place to stay in San Lorenzo?

      by jean_valjean Online Now Sep 5, 2006 at 7:18 AM

      I am looking for informaiton on a good place to stay for a few days in San Lorenzo de El Escorial. I hope to make it a home base to visit the El Escorial, Avila, Segovia, and La Granha. Most web posting give little information and what I have seen it was not good. We prefer small family run hotels to large tourist hotels. I found a small place in San Lorenzo "Posada Don Jaime" does anyone know this hotel? Has anyone stayed there and is it a practical base for my plans?
