I stayed on Camping Osuna on the outskirts - not TOO hard to find! I was there 5 or 6 nights in Holy Week this year. Took the metro in every day (about 45mins altogether) and just wandered. Beautiful architecture, lots of lovely, buzzy streets and squares, great places to eat and have a coffee.
I met up with a cousin's son who is a TEFLA teacher there, visited the Palacio Réal, the Museo del Prado, took the tourist bus, did a free walking tour, enjoyed the Holy Week processions (even including 'Klu Klux Klan'-dressed groups which would have been hugely sinister in Belfast), and also the Easter parades with their bands of drummers - like horizontal Lambeg drums.
There was so much to see and do.
Perhaps the secret was to park the transport and leave it there for the duration!
