Madrid travel tips
1) To save on the Madrid metro, buy a 10-ride ticket that can be shared
A 10-ride ticket saves you some money on the Madrid metro. Such a ticket costs 12.2 euro, while one trip costs 1.5-2 euro. It is also useful when travelling with friends or family since anyone can use such a ticket.
2) If you love underground hangouts, check out La Tabacalera in Madrid
La Tabacalera is a cultural centre in an old abandoned tobacco factory in the Lavapies area. Here you can find the weirdest creative people. If you like graffiti and cellars, then this is the place for you. La Tabacalera also hosts many masterclasses, from longboarding to ballet classes.
3) Most cafes in Madrid start serving breakfast from 10:00, so don’t wake up too early
Many cafes in Madrid serve breakfast from 10:00 until 14:00. Some establishments have a separate breakfast menu, including hot dishes and desserts, but a standard Spanish breakfast is a bun with coffee. In any case, waking up early to have breakfast in Madrid is not worth it – the locals go to bed after parties only after 04:00, so breakfasts are late here.
