Toledo by high speed train with private guide
Successively a Roman municipium, the capital of the Visigothic Kingdom, a fortress of the Emirate of Cordoba, an outpost of the Christian kingdoms fighting the Moors and, in the 16th century, the temporary seat of supreme power under Charles V, Toledo is the repository of more than 2, 000 years of history. Nowadays, a World Heritage Site by Unesco, its masterpieces are the product of heterogeneous civilizations in an environment where the existence of three major religions - Judaism, Christianity and Islam - was a major factor.
BETTER NOT TO GO ON SUNDAY AS THE CATHEDRAL DOES NOT OPEN TILL 2 PM
I will pick you up in your hotel or anywhere in the center of Madrid and will take a taxi to go to Atocha Railway Station to take the high speed train. It only takes 25 minutes!
Once in Toledo, we will first enjoy a sightseeing tour of Toledo to see the views of the old city. Then, we will get into the old center and will walk through the narrow streets to visit the Cathedral, Sto Tome Church to enjoy one of the best paintings by El Greco and Santa Maria la Blanca Synagogue.
These are the highlights of Toledo. However, along the way, we might see other things like the El Transito Synagogue or San Juan de los Reyes Church if you are interested.
After lunch, we will pick up the train to come back to Madrid. Usually, we are back around 4 pm.
