Its modern air harmoniously contrasts with the important old quarters and its cultural traditions. Madrid has a great transportation network which allows our visitors convenient access by road, plane or train, as well as for them to enjoy the best public transportation services in the world for inside journeys. Access by plane to Madrid is also excellent since Madrid's airport is one of the five most important in Europe. There will also be opportunities to visit other artistic old cities. Madrid's geographic location has allowed it to be very well connected with the rest of the country, and the historic cities of Toledo, Avila and Segovia are only about an hour away.
