Naviluz, The Christmas Bus


Naviluz, The Christmas Bus

Naviluz is the Christmas bus in Madrid. Enjoy the city’s most famous landmarks and locations lit up for Christmas from the Naviluz open top bus. The 45-minute ride starts and finishes at Plaza de Colón, and takes you on a tour of Madrid’s main streets and most magical light displays.

Setting off from Plaza de Colón (Calle Serrano, opposite number 30), the bus travels down Serrano, past the Puerta de Alcalá gate and Plaza de Cibeles, up Calle Alcalá and Gran Vía to Callao, where it turns around and heads back along a similar route but that also includes Calle Velázquez and Calle José Ortega y Gasset. Although you may only board the bus at Plaza de Colón, you may alight it at number 49 Gran Vía where the driver will stop briefly to allow for passengers wishing to stay in the centre to get off.

The duration of the tour depends on traffic conditions but generally lasts between 40 and 50 minutes. The buses depart every fifteen minutes.
