Booking a taxi is one of the fastest and easiest ways to get about in Madrid
Taking a transfer to Madrid from the airport is the first stage of your trip, but when you arrive in the city centre, getting around is easy once you know a few handy tips. Selecting the best way to get around Madrid depends on the reason for your trip and the places you want to visit.
Walking is the best option to explore Madrid’s historic centre. You could stroll through Barrio de Las Letras, visit the Plaza Mayor or Puerta del Sol, and walk along Gran Vía until the Cibeles Fountain and the Puerta de Alcalá.
The metro is a good alternative for any places you can’t walk to, such as Plaza de Colón or a visit to the Retiro Park.
For places of interest further afield, such as Real Madrid or Atlético de Madrid football grounds or shopping at Serrano, booking a taxi is the quickest and easiest way to get there.
Traveling to Madrid for work
If you are visiting Madrid for work, taxi is the fastest way to reach all your appointments and meetings. For example, to get to Paseo de la Castellana or Cuatro Torres Business Area, booking a taxi is the easiest and most comfortable option. You can book a transfer to IFEMA from the city centre.
Our local drivers speak English, so you’ll be able to reach your destination and answer any questions you might have about getting around town, both before and during the ride.
Get to Atocha or Chamartín stations by taxi
If your destination is one of Madrid’s train stations, the best option is to book a taxi:
- Transfer to Atocha Train Station. This medium and long-distance train station (also includes metro) is only 10 minutes by taxi from Puerta del Sol.
- Transfer to Chamartín Station. This station, which also offers medium and long-distance trains and metro, is located in Madrid North. A taxi from the city centre only takes 20 minutes.
