Tourist Travel Pass

Using public transport offers an easy and convenient way to get around the city. Madrid’s Tourist Travel Pass allows you to take unlimited trips within your chosen timeframe, making it a practical and inexpensive way to travel and visit all the sights. Tourist Travel Passes can be purchased for 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 or 7 days and are pre-loaded onto the Tarjeta Multi, a contactless, transferable smartcard that is valid for 10 years. Once the Tourist Travel Pass expires, you can top up the smartcard with pay-per-ride tickets.

You can purchase the pass at:

  • All Metro stations (including the airport stations Aeropuerto T1-T2-T3 and Aeropuerto T4) from ticket machines that have a red sticker saying Tarjeta MULTI Disponible AQUÍ. 
  • The entrance to the Cercanías (commuter train) Aeropuerto T4 station
  • The main office of the Madrid Regional Transport Consortium: Pza del Descubridor Diego de Ordás, 3.
  • Estancos (tobacco shops) and from other authorized retailers.

Paseo del Arte Pass

The card grants one visit to the permanent collection of each of the three museums on the Paseo del Arte (Art Walk): the Prado, the Thyssen-Bornemisza and the Reina Sofía. The pass is valid for one year from the date of purchase at the ticket office or from the date selected if purchasing online.

If you buy the pass from one of the museum’s websites, once you arrive in the city you must pick it up from that same museum’s ticket office. You will then be able to visit all three museums without the need to queue. ​
