    The fact that they don't warn you about their no-photo policy in the palace halls is kind of deceptive considering nearly all museums allow no-flash photography.

    You can leave the train at Opera station. This station is 400 meters from Royal Palace. Very easy to get to the palace that is amazing with beautiful paints!!!

    The entrance is free for EU citizens from 6pm, but it's best to come around 6:45. Huge waiting line is almost gone, and 1hr is enough for a visit.

    Great views of Madrid, lovely walk around the gardens and you can have a look for free but there is a charge to tour the inside of the palace but it's worth it :-)

    Although I did not enter, it is a splendid site from all of its angles. Went there over and over during and day and night... Stood there thinking "these are our ancestors that dominated our lands..."

    Don't bother with the audio guide (too long and too much intro music). Guided tours are much more convenient.

    Even if you don't pay to go in, stand by the front fence and have a nosey. Breathtaking.

    I've seen many palaces yet this ranks among the best. They don't allow photos in areas but this is still possible..

    If you don't speak Spanish, get the audio guide! Almost all of the placards are in Spanish. In the palace interior, some are in English. But in the armory and other parts it is purely Spanish.

    The staff at the audio tour counter says they have no more device but I do see devices there. Even after people return 2 devices and they are only willing to give me one. Tip: come back in minutes.
