As with other European cities, walking is by far the best way to explore. You will see so very much moire in that way.,

Walking around cities in Europe is quite normal and you will be in no danger if you do so. It is what ordinary people do, all the time.

There are also lots of buses (I didn't use them). You can pay the driver, which makes life much easier.

The Metro is clean and efficient. Ticket machines are easy to use and have English language options. A single-journey ticket costs 1.50 euro as of February 2012.

The city transport website below will give you information (in English) about bus and Metro routes.

But do use your feet as much as you can...you'll see so much more of Madrid!
