La Navidad también llega en autobús

By | 2 December, 2015 | 0 comments

Madrid dresses up for the festive period and what better way to enjoy the city’s splendour than from an open-top double-decker bus, also known as the Christmas Bus or Navibus. The service runs from the 3rd of December to the 5th of January and the itinerary starts at Plaza Colón (on Calle Serrano, 30, in front of Jardines del Descubrimiento) and moves along Calle Serrano towards the city’s most emblematic spots, such as Puerta de Alcalá, Plaza de Cibeles or Gran Vía, a little piece of New York in the heart of Madrid. The bus then returns to its starting point to end the journey, which lasts approximately 50 minutes.

This service is owned by the City Transport Company and a ticket costs just 2 euros, a very low price if we compare it with other tourist buses, although the journey is much shorter and it can be used only once.

However, if you would like a more comprehensive tour of the city with tourist guides in different languages, the options offered by companies like Madrid City Tour are much more interesting, a great way of discovering the city comfortably, directly and without moving a finger.

Their buses are equipped with Wi-Fi, audio guides in 14 different languages, air conditioning and a tourist guide. They also have different routes that you can choose, such as Historical Madrid, Modern Madrid or the Night Route. Its hop-on/hop-off system allows you to get off and on at your leisure, which makes the service a bit like your personal taxi at a flat rate. Ticket prices range from 10 to 21 euros.

Banco de España, Almudena cathedral, Paseo del Arte, Campo del Moro, Spanish Parliament (Congreso de los Diputados), Casa de Campo… Madrid has many different attractions, which you can see to perfection from the top of a bus.
