·         Getting to Madrid

Madrid's airport Adolfo Suárez Madrid-Barajas Airport serves international flights from all over the world. You can also get to Madrid by train from any of the major cities in Spain, from Portugal and from France.

Once you arrive in Madrid, there is an Exprés Aeropuerto (Airport Express shuttle) which runs almost continuously during the day and night for only 5 Euro. You can also use the express to return to the airport from pick up spots in the city. 

·         Getting Around Madrid

Madrid has wonderful public transportation. You can get around using the Metro, bus, bike or taxi. See more information here.

·         Climate

April in Madrid can be summed up in one word – rainy! Having said that, provided you bring your umbrella, you can easily explore the city to your heart's content. It's not all bad news however, because there are also 7 hours of sunshine per day to enjoy, which makes Madrid a great destination during this month of the year.

Temperature-wise, you can expect an average of 11°C, with an average high of a very warm 17°C, and a low of 5°C during the evenings, making an evening walk very comfortable.
