Well worth buying a multi journey ticket, 12.20 euros for ten journeys. You can switch lines very easily. Maps on trains show switching stations. Can be very busy which is when the pick pockets will be prominent.

An easy way to travel, but I ended up buying several extra trips since the system did not work and I ended using 3 tickets for one ride. Several times.

One way of getting to know a city and it's inhabitants is by using it's Metro. And the Madrid Metro tells you that both the city and it's people are both efficient and clean. The signposts are clear which makes it easy to find your...More

I highly recommend staying near a station, should be easy, and using the metro to get around. I used it to go to the zoo and to reach areas outside of the city center and saved a ton of money (versus taxi).

Good metro, easy to use and get around. The ticket machines are not completely in english, so ask for help if you are unable to purchase a ticket. 10 trip ticket is probably best option, unless you use the metro extensively and thus want a...More

Chueca
Chueca is the hip, gay neighbourhood of Madrid where
many of the streets are narrow and intimate, but where
the hustle and bustle and the eclectic storefronts and
people give it a distinctly urban feel. The main
thoroughfare is Calle Hortaleza and the main square is
Plaza Chueca, completely filled with terraza tables
serving copas (mixed drinks) during summer. A mixture
of trendy and grungy, some of the adult businesses

Normally any of the metros have the maps and they're free. Or go online and look up madrid metro. There's also a good app I use every day. MadridMBC which has the Metro, Bus and Cercanias train times and maps on.
