Need advice for Madrid (3 days) and Paris (4 days)

Jump to last reply

In April I will be taking my 15 yr. old daughter on her first trip to Europe. We will fly from the US into Madrid, spend 3 days there (my first time in Madrid), then fly into Paris for 4 days (I'm somewhat familiar with the city) and finally to Germany for a week to visit and stay with my parents. My daughter is an awesome traveler, interested in everything from art to history, science, photography and she's somewhat of a foodie. I'm very much looking forward to traveling with her and want to make the most of our time when we're in Madrid and Paris.

Madrid:
What's the easiest and/ or least expensive way to get from the airport to our hotel, 0.6 km from the Palacio Real? Is the metro a safe alternative or better a bus? We will have one backpack each.

What are some "must-sees" in Madrid besides Prado, Plaza Mayor and San Miguel Market, Puerta del Sol, Gran Via, Royal Palace, Museo Reina Sofia and the Parque del Retiro? Is the Zoo worthwhile?

Do the hop-on, hop-off bus tours in Madrid follow the same general route, are there differences between them? Would it make sense to get a 2-day pass and let that be our general guide to the city or would it be better to take the metro on the second day?

Would it be too much to spend two days in Madrid, followed by one day in Segovia or Toledo, before heading out to Paris on day 4? I know we will be jet-lagged somewhat at first.

Any recommendations for reasonably priced places for paellas and tapas?

Gracias.
