Madrid & Barcelona Questions

Jump to last reply

Planning a trip to these cities next year in May. Have much to do in preparation but let us begin by asking a few basic questions. We will be staying on points at the Hilton Barcelona and the Westin Palace in Madrid. We are two seniors who travel a lot usually one trip to Europe and one to Asia each year. Fairly mobile and we enjoy walking about visiting the major sights, churches, cathedrals, basilicas, but not really into the museum scene. Shopping is high on our list- not luxury designer venues but more of the local designers and markets. Also looking for good places to eat the local specialties but not expensive places ( no chi chi places as we are not gourmet diners).
1) Need to know the culture in these cities as it relates to when restaurants open and close as we understand there may be very different times when lunch and dinner hours are observed (a mid day break?) .

2) Metro - want to use this to get around, what to know?

3) Local do's and don't as pertaining to the culture there.
4) Taxis- what to be aware of here?

Ok these will do for a start, many more to come as we get into the details more.
