Madrid 28-31 Jan

by y2schuey

Hi,

Planning a last minute trip to Madrid 28-31 Jan - first visit to Spain. Mostly will be in Madrid but would like a day trip to Toledo. See the touristy bits, bullfight and Bernabeu. Found a hotel - Plaza Mayor Hotel.

Have been learning Spanish for the past three months so can talk basics. Anyone travelling to Madrid in the same period - or any VT Madrid members want to meet up on Sunday? Might help my Spanish.

Cheers

Im hopoing I heard correct that somethings been happening from all the international pressure that bullfights are now out?

Toledo is great - theres a fab youth hostel in Toledo up in the castle that you might want to take the opportunity to stay in rather than rush back to Madrid!? - check out Cuenca as well - you might have time to do a half day trip there but to do Madrid and yourself justice you also have to go to the world famous museum there!

Bullfights have been baned in Cataluña(a part of Spain), but in other areas have been "protected". Anyway...too much politic involved in that subject I think.

I know nothing about bullfights...but I think that there is none during winter time...but I might be wrong.

Day trips are o.k...but if you are going to stay just 3 days in Madrid, it seems like a bit "too much". But it is true that Toledo is a small beautifull city well worthy the visit.

Have fun.

Have you checked the weather mat? Take your winter woolies and gloves, and you certainly wont be getting any bullfights this time of year. Pick up a simple, cheap, modern guide book of 'Top 10' or something. And make sure you make the trip out to El Escorial as I said to the other poster!

Hello mate. Thanks for the info.

Silly me, I checked on bullfights after the post so yeah, realised there is nothing in Jan :)

Have also checked the weather - it looks cold like London at the moment with some rain expected on Friday and Saturday. And as the guides said, will take my scarf and gloves.

Friday, Sunday and Monday I will spend in Madrid. Saturday I will do a Toledo tour.

I will see if I get the chance to go to El Escorial - if not this time, definitely next time as I further expand my travels in Spain. For Easter, I will go to Barcelona and in late summer, Andalucia.

As Angiebabe said, Cuenca is also a nice day trip. Since last December it is connected to Madrid by AVE (high speed train). Perhaps not for this time (you already have a tight programme) but don't miss it if you are coming more times to Spain.

That's the way to do it mate. We try and go 2 or 3 times a year but I still haven't got to Toledo yet - so many places, so little time!

The most important thing in practising Spanish in the 'field' is to keep away from anywhere that they may speak English. If a waiter or anyone senses you speak English he will take you back into English to make things easy for you! That's partly why so many ex-pats in their close-knit communities, where all the waiters and shops speak English, hardly speak a word. You should be fine with your choices so far, although the more rural the better.

Spanish language, history and culture can be very addictive.

Travel Tips for Madrid

Madrid stop-over on our way to Andalucia

by Bwana_Brown

Our main objective on this winter trip to Spain was to find as warm a place as possible in Europe over the Christmas/New Year period! After looking at quite a few historic weather records, we decided that a rental car drive along Spain's Mediterranean coast would fit our requirements quite nicely.

After that decision was made, it was a simple case of booking our flights on Air Canada/Lufthansa from Regina, Saskatchewan in western Canada - travelling via Toronto and then Frankfurt, Germany to reach Madrid. We did want to at least see a bit of this famous city (and we did in the end), but we kept it to a minimum because large cities are not normally 'our cup of tea'. An economical internal flight on Spanair provided our connection to Andalucia province and we spent the next 19 days driving up, down and inland in that part of Spain. It was a very enjoyable trip when all was said and done. How pedestrian friendly it was. Of course, everyone was in a festive mood as their major celebration to close out the Holiday Season was in full swing by the time we arrived in downtown Madrid, for our one and only experience in the city itself.

Serrano Street

by Carmela71 about Shopping Areas

You can enter from Puerta de Alcala or from Colon, a parallel street to Paseo de la Castellana with lots of boutiques, stylish shops (like Chanel, Armani, Loewe...)

Here of course you can find also a Corte Ingles at Colon square.

Or also one of my favourites, ABC Serrano Shopping Center at C/ Serrano 61 or if you enter through Paseo Castellana- P? de la Castellana 34 (for a better pic of the entrance)
