The best way to get to Madrid is flying from the States (duh!). I just love the way VT organizes the formatting of these pages ;-)
The best way of getting around Madrid is by using public transportation (metro, taxi, bus) or by using your own two feet.
The picture to the left shows people at a bus stop.
You can pick up a route map at the EMT kiosk near Puerta del Sol. You can either pay the driver as you get on the bus or purchase 10-ride tickets in advance at the Metro stations or tobacco shops.
