I have been wondering, what is the easiest way to get from Barajas airport to Paseo Florida / Principe Pio Train Station? By train or metro?
What kind of ticket would you suggest for stay of 5 days?
We might want to pay Toledo a visit as well, what are the best options here? Train or bus?
Many thanks in advance,
Hi Kristina. I took a shuttle from the airport to my hotel in Madrid. so cant help you there. But as for taking an excursion to Toledo, I didn't go there. But I assume there are frequent buses that leave, as its a popular destination.
From Madrid, I took the train to Seville as my next major stop on my Spain Trip.
Best way from airport to anywhere in Madrid is the Metro, from the airport just take the pink line (the only in airport) and change to the 10 (dark blue) when pink is over. From there is direct line to P.pio
Traveling to Toledo from Madrid is best by train, like 1 hour travel and only 12.50€ Just go to Atocha station buy a ticket and go. There's 9 trains every day from Atocha to Toledo.
From Barajas airport T4 to Principe Pio the easiest way would be to take the train (cercanias). It will take around 40 minutes to arrive. For a 5 days stay I´d recommend to get Metrobus that is composed of 10 tickets that can be used for bus and metro. Regarding Toledo, train is faster, but there are many buses going to Toledo everyday. It depends on your budget and your schedule.
