  Subway station
by vanessadb

The subway system in Madrid is, inmho, one of the best (if not THE best) in the world. In the past few years, it has improved substantially: it has become safe* and the amount of lines and stations has grown. It is the best and easiest way to go around the city other than the bus system (which is harder to use if you don't know the city), except for walking that is! =D

It is also the cheapest and fastest way to arrive to the city from the airport and vice versa!

Single tickets are 1.10 euros and tickets including 10 trips are 5.20 euros... do the math! ;-) (btw these tickets are valid for the buses too)

* even if it is safe, as everywhere and with everything use precautions and common sense (for example don't take the subway alone at 3am and close your purse if the wagon is packed...)
