Madrid has a fantastic metro system, plentiful taxis, fast trains and a modern airport. If you plan ahead, transportation is a breeze.

Insider Tips: If you are staying in city center it is easy to walk to the start line (at Paseo de la Castellana) in the race morning and from the finish line (at Paseo del Prado). The Metro is crowded race morning, so give yourself plenty of time and bring coins if you haven’t purchased a metro card. Taxis can be difficult to catch after the race because many of the surrounding streets are closed. There are two Metro stations within walking distance of the finish.
