During this excursion from Madrid we will explore the architectural and social history of Toledo, so-known as the city of the Three Cultures, is only 71 kilometers from Madrid, a unique and "must to see" delight.

Built on top of a hill surrounded by city walls and embraced by the Tajo river, Toledo has been an important strategic city since Roman times. A place where Jewish, Muslim and Christian Communities historically coexisted.

We will explore the "Juderia", old Jewish Quarter, with its synagogues, the Gothic Cathedral from Christian Toledo, the life of the famous painter "El Greco" and all the fascinating legends and secrets of Toledo.

Join me for a wonderful day in Toledo!!

A Recent Review of this tour

We spent a fun-filled day with Amalia in Toledo. We took the train together from Madrid and had a great time learning about the culture of Toledo, seeing the sights and doing some shopping. My husband and son also wanted to try the zipline in Toledo, and she accommodated our tour around their experience (while helping to photograph it). She is amazing and has so much knowledge about Spain's history and culture. Highly recommend!
