logistical help

Jump to last reply

Air tickets are booked, hotels are booked, now it's time to get down to the details of how we spend our days!

We arrived mid morning Wed so we have 1/2 of Wednesday ( & will probably be a bit jet lagged!), Thursday (All Saints Day) and Friday we are off to Toledo for the day but will be back in Madrid around 7:00. We leave for Granada on Sat morning. We're staying at Palacio San Martin.

I'm looking for help in efficiency to see the most we can in the short amount of time we have. Also, my daughter is coming in via Renfe around 12:15 on Thursday so we need to hook up with her. She will have a bag with her so I don't know if she should drop it at hotel or if that would waste too much time.

Here are the sights I'm hoping to hit between Wed after and Friday night:

I know the Prado is world class but Thyssen & Soffia Museums seem more in line with the type of art I like. Do they have bag checks for my daughters stuff?

Retiro Park - what to do there?

Plaza Mayor

Gran Via

Palacio Royal

Palacio de Cibeles

Another question about shopping:

We will be in Madrid, Seville & Granada. I'm wondering if there a souveniers unique to each city or if one city is better suited for such things as leather ggods (pocketbook or gloves?)

I hope I'm not rambling. Just like to plan to get the most out of our days in a new country! Thanks very much!
