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.

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.
