I'm still trying to debate taking the train or flying from Madrid to Barcelona. I have heard it is difficult getting to and from the airports. Does anyone know exactly how far it is for each city? I've been told I can take an easy subway to the airport from Madrid but not sure about Barcelona.
Also was wondering if it's the same general rule in Spain as it is in the US...arrive 2 hours before your flight? I'm thinking the plane ride with transportation, getting their early, 1 hr 10 min flight, getting to barcelona may be about the same amount of time as the 5 hour train ride? Any thoughts or preferences? I've also heard the Madrid airport is tricky to navigate.
My boyfriend and I can't decide...Thanks!
