      Andalucia Must See

      Andalucía 1 hours ago

      We will be staying for 1 week in Olvera, then 1 week in Soportujar during March 2016. We will have a car for both weeks and are not worried about a lot of driving. Please suggest some "Must See" highlights and "Off the Beaten Track" places so I can make an itinerary. We will be self catering, but any dining suggestions would be welcome.

      How to see the island of Sao Jorge in the Azores

      Azores 2 hours ago

      I will be flying from Terceira to Sao Jorge and spending two days there (in December.) What is the best way to see the island, especially off the beaten path? (Renting a car is not an option.) I'm also interested in getting a flavor of the way of life through the people, but I don't speak Portuguese. Can one hire a taxi with an English speaking driver for a reasonable amount? Are there some hidden gems that shouldn't be missed? Oh, and is there anywhere that I could see women quilting? I hear this island is known for their colorful quilts.

      Azores 2 hours ago

      Can anybody recommend a place to stay on Sao Jorge that is not modern? I want to experience the flavor of the island. A place that isn't too far from a town and with good views and perhaps a restaurant would be good. (I'm headed to The Azores for a week stay in December.)

      Hi everyone,

      I'm flying to Ibiza tomorrow and very excited (Ibiza virgin)! Unfortunately it's one of those places that I know nothing about and whenever I try to do some online research I'm overwhelmed by the amount of divergent information available. So I thought I would ask my trusted VT community that has never failed me before :-D

      I'm basically looking for tips for unique/impressive restaurants (something with a spectacular view for example) and fun "Ibiza-style" parties. My hotel is close to Platja d'en Bossa beach.

      Many thanks in advance for your suggestions!!

      Let's get this party started :-)

      Is it always windy in Calpe ?

      Calpe Sep 13, 2015 at 5:25 PM

      Hi guys
      We were in Calpe in May 2014. We really loved the place ... but the wind !!!!!
      It was really strong most days and got particularly cool in the evenings.
      We knew evenings can get cool at that time of year, but we weren't expecting such strong winds and to be honest it took some of the enjoyment out of our holiday.
      We're thinking of going back in June 2016 and I was wondering if we can expect the same or is the weather calmer in June ? Maybe we just hit a bad week in May 2014 ?

      I hope so because we really liked Calpe and we'd love to return.

      Tavera Hospital opening hours

      by agathi Online Now Sep 4, 2014 at 8:21 AM

      Dear friends. I am trying all day today to figure out what is going on with the Tavera hospital opening hours and the way one can visit the museum of the hospital.
      Before this year's anniversary of El Greco it was open 10 a 14:30, y de 15 a 18:30 and you could visit the museum only with guided tours at 10:15 - 11:00 - 11.45 - 12:30 - 13:30 - 15.15 - 16:00 - 16:45 - 17:30.
      Now they told me that it is open 10.00-20.00 but only for the exhibition (what exhibition? there is no exhibition now at the hospital) and that one can visit the museum only by quided tours at the times I mentioned before. But this way there is a blank between 18.15 that the last tour finishes and 20.00 that they say the museum closes.Their english is not so good and I can't understand what they want to say, whereas I don't speak spanish and thus we can't understand each other.
      In addition, the "El Greco 2014" foundation, informed me that the hospital will be open from 10.00-20.00 and no guided tours will be necessary for the museum.
      Could you pls help me with this mess? Thank you very much.

Whereas all the other relevant sites give the ordinary so far opening times of the hospital from 10.00-13.30 & 15.00-17.30. The hospital doesn't have an e-mail address so I can't ask them.

But on the other hand we must rent the taxi for a day since we would certainly want to stop and look around in these places. Do you have any idea how can one do this spesific route?

      Hi, I have friends visiting Madrid for several days before flying out of Madrid Barajas airport.

      Because their flight isn't until 1130am, I was going to suggest that rather than visit Toledo on a daytrip, they should spend their last night there then go to the airport the next morning. The Toledo city buses from Pl. Zodocover start running early enough to catch an early AVANT train to Atocha, then take the frequent C1 Cercanias train to the airport.

      Only thing I don't know is how is the transfer between AVANT train and the Cercanias? I figure the platforms are probably close to each other but I thought I would ask. Thanks in advance for your help!

      Hi, I am planning a day trip from Madrid to Toledo and have some questions:

      - I am staying near Atocha, is it better to take the bus or train (Renfe) to Toledo? What are the pros and cons? Have posted this on the Madrid forum and I have helpful links on Renfe information already. I saw on travel guides that the best view is to look at the Alcazar from afar. Is this view possible if arrive on bus or train?

      - I have only 5 hours due to my timing of arrival and departure into Madrid, either on Friday 12-ish to 5-ish or Saturday 10-ish to 3-ish. Which is the recommended day or is there no difference?

      - Within the 5 hours, I aim to visit the Alcazar and just snap photos of scenic views around. Can you let me know if there is any absolutely must visit attraction after the Alcazar? I know there is a lot, but as I have only 5 hours, what is highly recommended? My interests is more on snapping photos and see historical / cultural places, not so much on food and shopping. =)

      There are six of us going to Toledo at the end of May and we're wondering where in Toledo would be the place to stay? We are all interested in history and we would like to stay outside into the early hours, have a good dinner, some beer and great talks. Some traditional Spanish music outside would be a bonus.

      What time in the morning can you be served drink until in Toledo? The reason I ask is that a hotel that I was looking at seems really good but it has no bar so if we book it we'd want to be able to stay out drinking somewhere else.
