|Subject: New Madrid Card|
a new tourist card has been launched in Madrid : http://www.madridcard.com (unfortunately, the site is only in spanish)
There are three types of cards (24, 48 and 72 hours). You can buy them at the tourist offices and at the Madridvision buses. When you buy them, you must validate them and then, they will last the exact amount of time you bought.
The entrance to the Prado, Thyssen, Reina Sofia and other biggies in the Madrid museum scene is included (but unfortunately, only once, not any time you want as it happens with the Carte Músees). It also includes 5 bus or metro trips in the 1 and 2 days card, or 10 trips in the 3 days card. Other interesting things are discounts in shops and restaurants, and a guided visit through the Austrias Madrid. The prices go from 28 to 55 Euros.
Kind regards, Covadonga Bilbao - Spain
