comment How to go from Madrid Airport to Gran Via?
There may be a combination of buses that's even faster to get you to your final destination, but they're harder to navigate — I assume that if you need to ask, you'll prefer the trains.

Cercanías is actually cheaper and faster. It doesn't go exactly to the right place, only to Sol, but that's pretty close. Even if you change to the Metro in the city, it's still slightly faster and cheaper than taking it all the way from the airport.

Stick to the Netherlands, where steep, narrow staircases are the norm and lifts are exceptional.

comment Availability of local train tickets in France
What you wrote is true, but it does not apply to regional trains in France, most of which have no reservation at all.

@StephenP. Please read the faq: If you are not comfortable with the idea of your contributions being collaboratively edited by other trusted users, this may not be the site for you. What I added was both relevant and correct (if incomplete), so it was a perfectly legitimate edit, and I don't understand your objection.

comment Automated passport control in the EU
In France I know you have to register, there are big signs in airports inviting people to do so. I don't know if all European countries use the same system.
