I did stay on the New Park Milano. It was very convenient tho a cleaner told me to get the train to Cadorna rather than Centrale (again, 2 stops) and looking at the map I think she's right.
I enjoyed the day very much but coming back I was on a train with no info board n when you're in a station there's no indication of which it is! Suffice to say that the 1st stop, which was almost immediate, I could see a sign in red saying Cadorna so I thought they'd just moved along the track a bit. Turns out that red sign was for the other track, saying where the next train was going
So I didn't get off at the next stop and it didn't stop at all for about 20mins! Fortunately a young lass took pity on me and made sure I was on the right platform for going back. And it didn't cost any more than the ?1.50 cos I hadn't left the station.
I'd to wait a while for the 82 bus then the driver had no idea of the camper place and I ended up having to walk back the way - once I figured out where I was!
I left the camper place in the evening, straight into traffic jams. But to be honest, I think Milan is probably a permanent traffic jam.
So a very long and tiring day, but very interesting.
I'd say, for the normal person, the New Park Milano is a very good option.
I stayed on Camping Alpha in 2015. Took the bus into Madrid centre.
To be truthful I can't remember how long it takes in total, the metro is frequent and swift. And there is a bus from the station that stops right outside the aire. You can catch it to the station if there is no one to offer a lift, it's about a mile to walk from memory.
Thanks for that. You can tell my heart's in Spain!
That sounds a good option - safety and a lift to the public transport. I presume it runs every so often so you can also pick it up back to the site?
And I presume there's no problem arriving and leaving early evening to allow the most time in town the following day?
How long does it take to get into city centre?
Several sites in above link
Presumably this one:-
Campercontact site code 7236, not a beautiful site or location. But very secure with charming and eager staff. It's very handy to get in and out of city centre bus/metro (we were given lift to station) not much English. It's basically a camper storage facility with an area given over to an aire. Stayed last March expensive at 25 euro but as I say safe! Facilities and EHU included. Let me know if you haven't got campercontact and I'll give you the coordinates.
|jiwawa||That should've said Milan!! Can anyone change the title please? Are there any mods there? Im on the phone and there's no facility to alter.|
Site or aire convenient for Madrid?
Can anyone suggest a stopping place that is convenient for public transport into Madrid?
