Gran Via street Tips (7)

Evening promenade

Favorite thing After delicious and hefty dinner Madrid was eager to show me around a bit more, maybe it was influenced by the fact that I once revealed that I like cities at night, who knows...

We walked along Gran Via watching the brightly lighted windows and blinking neon signes, groups of youngsters laughing and chatting loudly rushed back and froth in search of friends and entertainment.... Madrid wispered into my ear - hey, watch it, the night has just began, you'll see the city that never sleeps...

Gran Via street

Favorite thing One of the oldest big streets of Madrid, and probably the most touristic. It goes from Cibeles Square to Plaza de España. Here you can find a lot of hotels, souvenir shops and cinemas. It's a nice street to watch people passing buy, always busy and noisy.
You will find the worst traffic jams in Madrid on saturdays at 3-4 am (in the morning, yes!!!)

Internet Access on Gran Via

Favorite thing When I emerged from the Gran Via subway station onto the street, my first mission was to find an internet cafe and write home to my family. I found one within a block of the big McDonald's right outside of the subway station exit. There's a sign outside of the restaurant advertising "Internet Access."

The ground floor is a really large restaurant by European standards, and upstairs (loft-style) are computers for internet access. You put coins into slots on the desk and you're online. Cost is around 2 euros for a half hour.

Address: Gran Via 31, 28013 Madrid

Madrid at a gilmpse

Favorite thing Madrid (when compared with other European capitals) doesn't have amazing monuments, or enormous skyscrapers, or even romantic and charming riversides. But it's so full of life, of things to do and places to see that you will not miss any of the latter things.

Fondest memory Hard to choose one single moment as the fondest one, as many places of Madrid bring to my head sweet memories... However, I'll say that walking Gran Via on a sunny morning is fantastic experience. You can be amused with the local crowd (the most extravagant you are likely to find in the city) or enjoy with the finest architectural examples of Madrid. Your choice!!!

Gran Via

Favorite thing The fancy street with shops, cafés and offices. The main building what catches a person's eye is Edificio Metropolis at the corner of the street. I like the way it is designed. On the top is the statue of Goddess Victoria, bellow four statues symbolizing Agriculture, Indrustry, Commerce and Mining. All about business and it displays the street very well.

Princesa and Gran Via Avenues

Favorite thing While I was in Madrid, I stayed in the hotel Melia Princesa in Princesa Avenue.
Consequently, I had plenty of time to stroll around for shopping in the avenues %Princesa% and %Gran Via.
Awesome shops for the pleasure of the eyes!
