We took the metro from our hotel to the Plaza de Toros (Las Ventas) and stepped off the subway directly onto the site. Easy and inexpensive navigating. We enjoyed using the audio guide to tour the small museum and the large arena. The informative tour...More

There is a show at 7 PM every day. So we missed it because we didn't know about it. However we had a fantastic tour of the entire place with our audio guide.
