I think the people rating this so highly are getting a little carried away with the romance of being in Madrid. It's a strip of parkway with plenty of vehicle traffic running alongside. It doesn't compare to the open spaces of El Retiro. If it didn't have Prado in the name, you wouldn't notice it. Many cities in Europe have something similar or better.

The Paseo del Prado is a beautiful walk surrounded by some of the most beautiful architecture of Madrid. You are sheltered by large trees and surrounded by beautiful flowers, who would want more!

Easy to get to & very impressive, although from the back it looks like it is in need of tlc. The gardens have now been built on with what looks like a very modern extension. Also the prices of admission were not very accessible. But on the whole impressive visit.

A nice walkway that you use to get from one Golden Triangle museum to another. There's Neptune's Fountain, some luxury hotels and an Egyptian obelisk that is always fenced off and closed. Nothing too grand but it's a nice stroll if you are heading to the Prado, Thyssen or Reina Sofia.
