Madrid is full of amazing restaurants from every corner of the globe. And speaking of restaurants - the city is home to the world’s oldest one, Botín. Look at the map in the Voi app and you’ll find it sitting in the same address it has been since 1725; Calle Cuchilleros 17. The thought of it is making our heads spin - taking the future of transportation back in time towards the Age of Enlightenment.
Not really in the mood for food? Take a Voi to Templo de Debod, an ancient Egyptian temple in the middle of the city - it also just happens to be the perfect spot for a pretty unique sunset.
Most common Voi trips in Madrid
For locals in Madrid
During weekends, Voi-riding Madrileños love to hang out in “La Latina” or in “Malasaña” - home of tons of amazing places to eat, alternative bars and unique vintage stores - prepare to be amazed by their originality.
For tourists in Madrid
Tourists, much like locals, seem to love Spanish endless opportunities for food and shopping which makes it very difficult from where to start your journey. Did you know that Puerta del Sol is from where all the distances are measured in Spain? Start your day there and scoot your way to Gran Vía to do some shopping and discover large movie theatres. If you let the street lead your way, you will end in Puerta de Alcalá, close to Plaza Cibeles and Puerta de España to enter in Retiro Park and end your day with some peace.
Voi friendly areas
Some places are better suited for Voi riding than others. If you want to practice your riding skills in a beautiful environment or just want to enjoy some peace and quiet (almost), head out to Parque del Retiro. This cool part of Madrid has no traffic and a lot of nice things to discover and look at, like the beautiful Palacio de Cristal. And when you need a break from the lush environment, there are plenty of things to do; chill out in Florida Retiro inside the park, learn some stuff about art at the many museums or admire the city from above at the Círculo de Bellas Artes rooftop terrace.
