Best Day Trips from Madrid — Toledo & Segovia

Planning a trip to Madrid Spain? Toledo and Segovia are the best day trips from Madrid. Both are only about 30 minutes away by high-speed train. You can take these day trips from Madrid on your own, no need for a tour!

If you want to get out of the city for a day or two, I highly recommend Toledo or Segovia. Or both!

First let me show you Segovia!

For both of our Toledo and Segovia day trips from Madrid, 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.

    Could you imagine living in a place like this? Waking up to sites like that- so much history! I am loving the gate photo too!

    Wow~ must be amazing to see in person, but your photo’s are still wetting my travel appetite. Some day!!! I took Latin in high school and college and always thought I see the Roman Aqueducts, but it was not meant to be, at least for now.

Do you have a question or comment?
