Barajas Airport

Madrid’s airport is located just over six miles from the city centre. It’s really simple to get to Madrid on the metro. To get to Neuvos Ministerios – the city’s large underground station – just hop on line 8 from the airport and relax on the half-hour ride. 

Public Transport

The Spanish capital has an excellent underground system. There are 16 lines in total, all operating both the city and its suburbs. Running from 6am until 2am every day, it’s the most efficient way to travel in Madrid.

However, Madrid’s buses are also very efficient, and riding on them allows you to take in the sights as you travel. The EMT bus network consists of around 100 lines, all running from 6am until 11:30pm. Look out for the useful circle routes, which are marked with a C. If you need a night bus, head to the Plaza de Cibeles


Here’s a handy travel tip for you: you can tell when a taxi in Madrid is free if a “Libre” sign is presented in the front windscreen, and there is a green light on the roof. Be prepared for busy times – typically evenings and weekends – by booking ahead
