Madrid to enjoy 1-5 day low-cost guide

Description

GENERAL:

Madrid is definitely one of most wonderful cities of the world. Very nice architecture, lots of parks, plenty od cafes, restaurants and pubs serving local and international food and drinks. It's great to have a lot of time just to walk, relax, enjoy the views. 

ROUTES:

First I recommend to take Madrid 1 day route. It gives a glimpse of the most interesting streets, Puerta del Sol, Plaza Mayor, Palacio Real, Templo de Debod and some snacks on the way. http://way2a.com/track_details/1237,madrid-1-day (10 USD)

 

On the second day I recommend to go to Retiro Parc and the most impressive museums of Madrid: el Prado and la Reina Sofia. http://way2a.com/track_details/1226,madrid-2-nd-day (12 USD)

 

The Third day which preferably would be on Sunday I  suggest to visit la Latina district  for el Rastro flee market and try Madrid's speciallities: Churros and jamon. http://way2a.com/track_details/1233,la-latina-with-churros-el-rastro-and-bac (9 USD)

 

For the evenings go to see Tabacalera (I highly recommend it to all of you, who like to see some alternative places not only typical attractions) and Lavapies district: http://way2a.com/track_details/1231,la-tabacalera-de-madrid-and-lavapies-dis (0 USD)

... and la Chueca, which is great place to eat, drink and partyhttp://way2a.com/track_details/1230,chueca-gay-community-district-great-plac (11 USD)

 

If you still have some time visit Real Madrid's stadiumhttp://way2a.com/track_details/1234,santiago-bernabeu-stadium (21 USD)

... and the river bankhttp://way2a.com/track_details/1228,rio-de-madrid (0 USD)

 

COSTS:

As you can see for 63 USD you can have quite a lot of fun in MAdrid. To survive there you need to count additionally around 8 USD per day for food and drinks you will buy in a grocery shop (supermercado). if you are not a Couch Surfer or don't find a host you need to count at least 20 USD for the accommodation per night. It' s good to buy 10 drives ticket for the city communication for 14 USD. If you like to walk and live more or less in the center it should be enough for the whole time of your stay. Count 6 USD for the transportation from and to the airport.

In total:
4 days without accomodation (if you sleep at you your friends, auntie, or use www.couchsurfing.org) -  around 120 USD
4 days with accomodation - around 200 USD 

 

TOLEDO:

If you still have one day definitely go to Toledo. It's just 0,5h far from Madrid by bus but it's completely different and really beautiful. Arrange at least 4 hours to spend in Toledo. You shoudn't hurry up there. The bus costs 13 USD. In Toledo visiting 3 most interesting attractions and having a nice tapas menu you will spend around 22 USD.
In total 35 USD.
