what locations are part of the tour?

by amber__04

What sites do you visit on the segway tour besides Plaza de Espana?

Re: what locations are part of the tour?

by mccalpin

Are you talking about Madrid Segway Tours at
http://www.madsegs.com/madridsegwaytour.html ?

The website says "the royal gardens, Opera, Templo de Debod (Egyptian Temple), Plaza de España and the Palace", and it notes "tours are flexible upon customers requests on the day and ability on the segway"

I would encourage you to contact them directly at

Travel Tips for Madrid

Sundays at El Rastro

by vanessadb

Each Sunday El Rastro, a gigantic flea market situated in the lavapiès district, attracts several thousand people. It offers everything, from antiques, books and clothing, to stolen car parts and pirat cds....

Keep an eye on bags, cameras, and belongings. Even if there are a lot of police around, crafty pickpockets are just waiting for unsuspecting tourists. When I was a kid, I used to come to the Rastro with my mother to shop for arts and crafts, but there is now another side of it that
should not be missed imho: the drinking and eating (tapas) in the old neighborhood bars with the locals!

Such a perfect way to spend your Sunday afternoon =)))

SEGOVIA
See the aqueduct - not...

by davidcross

SEGOVIA
See the aqueduct - not that you would be likely to miss it. It is superb - but I am not sure I do not prefer the one at Tarragona which I had to myself!

Fitting in?

by Lorro

People sometimes ask what to wear when they come to Europe. Since I am American this tip is generally for americans coming to Spain, Can work for northern Europeans too. Some people want to try to blend in. Some dont. Heres how to look like a tourist and totally stand out:
Wear a baseball hat. Put on shorts in April when we are all still in sweaters. Wear beach sandles in the middle of Madrid. Once I saw some american girls all dressed in little skirts and sandles in March and April and they were beginning to wonder why everyone was looking at them funny.
Wear a Fanny Pack, (Bum bag for you Brits)
Oh and dont forget, Spaniards love to make fun of the birkenstock sandles with socks fashion. (behind your back of course) Especially white socks. Im sorry, I agree its comfortable, maybe we could convince Spaniards that it really is fashionable too...
So what to wear? Dress in Layers, you may be warm in the day but the evenings can be quite cool in Spring and Fall.

Arco de la Victoria, or the Puerta de Moncloa

by Jefie

After walking through the Parque del Oeste, I was surprised to stumble upon the Arco de la Victoria, a monument that very much resembles Paris's Arc du Triomphe. The 39 m tall monument is not open to visitors and after asking around, I discovered that it was built under Franco in 1956 as a tribute to the Nationalist army's victory during the Spanish Civil War. It is therefore not the most popular monument in the city, and a lot of people actually refer to it as the Puerta de Moncloa as way of avoiding making reference to the Spanish dictator. The monument is located near the Plaza de Moncloa (Metro Moncloa).

LATE nights!

by markeveleigh about Clubs

To their countrymen the people of Madrid are known as Los Gatos (The Cats) for their nocturnal lifestyle. Many young Gatos will consider a week with less than two sleepless nights as a social wasteland and for them the weekend starts on Thursday.
Madrid’s nightlife can take a little getting used to. It is unusual to eat before 10, to go to the cinema before 10:30 or to enter a nightclub before midnight. Bars are open throughout the night, cafés are licensed to sell alcohol at all hours and at many restaurants you can book a table for two o’clock, or even three o’clock, in the morning.

Joy Eslava (Calle del Arenal, 33), with 6 bars distributed across 3 floors, is still the city’s most popular nightspot - on any night of the week it is a favourite queuing venue for both citizens and travellers alike.
Gabana 1800 (Velázquez, 6) is the flagship of the Madrid dulce vida and is a cocktail-sipping hangout for the city’s gorgeous people…and often a few Real Madrid futbolistas.
Ave Nox (Lagasca, 31) has a lively atmosphere and is another prime place-to-be-seen. Teatriz (Hermosilla, 15), set in a charming theatre, is a very popular venue that is worth visiting if only to check out the décor (by Philippe Starck y Mariscal).
Fortuny (Fortuny, 34) is an intriguing ‘disco-restaurant’ in a historic little mansion that has certainly seen the glittering footsteps of more than a few of the city’s brightest stars.
