I have a few questions here. I'll be flying into Madrid at 7pm on Tuesday April 29th. I plan on taking the bus to my hotel, there seems to be just one bus #203 needed (according to google maps). Then plan on taking the train to Castello on Thursday May 1st. And I don't speak Spanish. I don't have much time to research Madrid, so I'm asking here.
1. Is it safe for a girl traveling alone to take the public transportation at night? I'm an obvious tourist, I'll have my luggage with me.
2. My hotel is near the Seville metro. Any suggestions on where to eat? Specific restaurants would be nice.
3. I plan on doing a bike tour to see the city . Good idea? Any better ideas?
4. I read that May 1st is a holiday. Is that going to effect train schedules to Castello?
Thank you so much.
