On arrival you walk out of arrivals the bus stop is well signposted and easy to get to. Save a bit...

    When there is not a taxi strike, the best way in to town is a regular taxi. When there is a taxi strike, or if you are looking to save money, the bus seems to be the best alternative, as pre-paid taxis are expensive and, in the case of the City-Airport prepaid taxi, it does not show up during a two hour search, does not answer repeated pages on the...

Also, if you try to call a cab and get one to come to you, they might not...

    A way for a different look of Madrid is the telpher that links Paseo del Pintor Rosales to Casa de Campo, passing over Rosaleda, and Manzanares river.

    Several cities in the world have carriages to a brief circuit. I think that Seville is one of the most suitable to justify its use.
