Madrid/Toledo/Madrid/Barcelona Same day?

by emphasis

I am planning to take 9:20am train to Toledo from Madrid and return same day to Madrid on the 5:30PM train that arrives Madrid at 6:00PM. I then want to take the train for Barcelona that departs Madrid at 7:00PM. Is the 1 hr connection enough time? Thanks in advance. Jerry

Re: Madrid/Toledo/Madrid/Barcelona Same day?

by puerto_lover

Yes. The train to Toledo leaves from MADRID-PUERTA DE ATOCHA. Same station for the AVE to Barcelona. You will have a chance to walk up to the Prado grounds or whatever.

You should have time but I would personally take an earlier train into Toledo (assuming you're traveling during the summer) it can get quite hot so getting an early start is good.

ps. no, it does not count that you're from Florida for the heat - I am too ;=)

by Miguelzgz

I agree with the previous post...the earlier you arrive, the better.

There are lots of things to see in Toledo, and it will be very hot(if you go in the summertime).

Have fun.

Since you will be arriving at, and departing from Madrid Atocha station, and since RENFE AVE punctuality is around 99.8%, barring some major misfortune (for which you will be refunded if it is RENFE's fault), you will have no problems whatsoever.

Thank you in advance for using our magnificent high speed train network!

Travel Tips for Madrid

Palacio Real

by Malecka

The Royal Palace is evidently a place-to-visit, and don’t miss out on Jardines de Sabatini. It is such a nice place!
It's like this... you visit Cervante's monument and continue walking to the Jardines de Sabatini. NICE spot! And the pedestrian zone starts... to your right: Palacio Real!
:-) ...the crowds of people, sitting in the green grass just opposite of the Royal Palace, reading a book (or the visitors reading one of the many Madrid-guides). The magnitud of the architecture excites you and yet, the tranquillity of the atmosphere relaxes you.

Tapas

by la_beba

Madrid is finally emegring out from the dark shadow of Francisco Franco and shedding its staid, traditionalist and parochial image. Modern cuisine based on regional themes is starting to catch-on in the city. Locals credit Spain's entry to the European Union and the opening of the borders for free movement in Europe, as the driving force behind Madrid's updated look. But old habits die hard, especially if they are as delicious as tapas, the wonderful little appetizer dishes that feed Spain between lunch and midnight. Around the Plaza Mayor, the Puerto del Sol, the Plaza de Santa Ana or the Opera are clusters of friendly bars known by the Madrileños as tascas, where a glass of fino can be accompanied by tapas. Each bar has a number of specialties.

Some terms to remember:

Tasca, a bar serving tapas
Tapeo, tapas bar hopping. A pub crawl.
Tapa, a single piece of food in a saucer-sized plate.
Ración, A larger portion of a tapa, enough to share with a friend.
Media Ración, half a ración but larger than just a tapa.
Banderilla, a few pieces of grilled or cold and/or pickled tidbits impaled on a toothpick shaped like the instrument used to stick the bull in a bullfight.
Montadito, a canape-like tapa.
Fino, pale dry sherry from Jerez, always served chilled. The most popular sherry overall.

In most bars along with the sherry and beer you will also find cava (champagne) as an inexpensive item. You might wonder about the minimal cost till you realize that what is being served is cheap white wine passed through a CO2 gizmo, like a beer pump.
Presto! Bubbly on tap!!!

MODERN DOUBLE PISA TOWER

by nada.c

Kio towers, or Port of Europe. Interesting architecture. Both towers are 15 degraes leaning. Madrid impressed me with old architecture, and wonderful buildings, but this one modern is something I have to mention.

Spanish wines from professional sommelier

by Dr.Styranki about Bodega de los Reyes

Near to the city center this wine shop offers spectrum of wines from all regions of Spain. The staff and Senor Javier Zufia have very positive attitude and are gladly presentin their wine cellar specialities. The shop and cellar are not too big, but very cosy in atmosphere, you may even arrange wine tasting events there. You may get very good bargain of selected and superb Rioja wines around 20 Euros per bottle when buying them in six bottle cases. You will get original wooden case (owc) with you, which you can place safely into your baggage. At least from Madrid to Helsinki zero bottle was broken.

They are providing mail order service as well. 20 euros if you buy just one bottle, 200 euros if more
