Best Day Trips from Madrid — Toledo & Segovia
Toledo and Segovia are two super easy day trip options from Madrid. You can get to both by high-speed train in about 30 minutes. If you are looking to get out of the city for a day or two, I highly recommend Toledo or Segovia. Or both!
First I will show you Segovia. Pictured above is the castle of Segovia. It was one of the many inspirations for Cinderella’s Castle at Walt Disney World.
Segovia is famous for having one of the best-preserved elevated Roman aqueducts.
It is breathtaking to see in person.
The view from Segovia castle is amazing!
Seriously could not get over the cathedral of Segovia, located in the main square.
The inside was just as stunning.
Loved these high stained glass windows.
Segovia is a great option for a day trip from Madrid!
Another option for a day trip from Madrid is Toledo.
For both Toledo and Segovia, we took the 9 AM train, and came back on an afternoon train, like around 4 PM, so we were back in Madrid for dinner. That gave us plenty of time to explore both cites.
Take a cab to the Mirador del Valle for this overlook of Toledo!
When you arrive at the train station, you can easily walk to the old city of Toledo.
Here is the gate you will enter.
This was a beautiful archway near the Alcázar de Toledo.
Love wandering the streets of Toledo!
Definitely visit the Toledo Cathedral.
The inside is amazing!
Can you even believe this altarpiece?
Thanks so much for reading!
