one day trip to Toledo on 19/03?

by evik1234

Hello again,

Hello again ... I had been informed that it s a national holiday on 19/3 for Spain - is it a good idea having a day-trip to Toledo from Madrid (city center)at that day? I have choosen Toledo because it s not far from Madrid - any suggestions for a better day -trip ???
And the last question ... Is it better to buy the tickets for the day-trip from the internet or shall i buy them from Madrid (the hotel may be)....
Too many questions ... but we are travelling first time by our owns ...
Thank you

P.S.The previous answers you gave me were very helpful

It is not "national" holiday. It is for some parts of the country only. I must go to work that day, it is not holiday in my part of the country. I am not sure about madrid area, but I did a quick search in the internet and it seems it is holiday.

Anyway, it is not a big problems. Trains and coaches will work as usual, maybe a bit more crowed, I think. If you know exactly when you want to go to Toledo you may buy your tickets in the internet...but you won´t have any problem going to the station and buying the tickets. I am sure there are lots of connections. At the hotel they will inform you.

I have found some info about Madrid-Toledo by coach: Beware that if it is holday you must look for "Domingos y festivos(sundays and holidays)"

Good luck. Don´t worry, Madrid and Toledo are easy, safe cities to visit.

Try to investigate first what's open and what is not in Toledo on that day. In case many sights are closed, you always have more possibilities in Madrid on a festive day.
Another great day-trip is Segovia, I do like it more than Toledo but this is just a personal preference.
(by the way, 19-3 is not festive for me either....)

I have taken daytrips both to Toledo and to Segovia for the day, and also have gone to El Escorial. All trips a long time ago. When we were in Madrid over the holidays, we ended up taking a city tour, and then we went to a bull fight. The Prado was open even though it was a holiday.

But I was assuming that the tickets that were required were for some kind of tour. If you take an organized tour, you wouldn't have to figure out whether stuff was open or not - the tour company will do it for you.

Toledo is a great choice for a day trip from Madrid - it is very interesting for both the historian and art lover. It is also the home of intricate inlaid metal work.

Travel Tips for Madrid

Toledo -picturesque old town of spain.

by hanspeter_W.

Toledo has one of the most picturesque old town of Spain
Toledo (Latin: Toletum) (Arabic: ØáíØáÉý) is a municipality located in central Spain, 70 km south of Madrid. It is the capital of the province of Toledo and of the autonomous community of Castile-La Mancha. It was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1986 for its extensive cultural and monumental heritage as one of the former capitals of the Spanish Empire and place of coexistence of Christian, Jewish and Moorish cultures. Many famous people and artists were born or lived in Toledo, including Al-Zarqali, Garcilaso de la Vega, Eleanor of Toledo, Alfonso X and El Greco. It was also the place of important historic events such as the Visigothic Councils of Toledo. As of 2007[update], the city has a population of 78,618 and an area of 232.1 km2 (89.59 square miles).

The Retiro park is the well known spot to cool down in summer. A less known spot, but nonetheless very relaxing is the Real Jardin Botanico. Its situated south of the Prado. There is a diversity on trees, bushes and medical spices. South American plants are there too. The garden is designed by Ortego under Carlos the third. its not that much overcrowded by toursists so you can wander along in rest.

Packing List

by shellseeker

Don’t expect the weather to be warm and sunny in early spring or fall just because it is Spain (well, we had luck... my Dad, my brother Stefan and his girlfriend Eva sitting on Plaza Mayor). Madrid is situated on a rather high altitude and it could get chilly, especially during the nights. Summer in Madrid is very hot and dry (30-40 degrees Celsius!). All the locals (if they can) leave the city during the month of August. A good time to go is from around Easter to the beginning of June. Then the weather conditions are very good, rain is rare and the air is more or less clean. Madrileños are very stylish and fashion-conscious people. Tourists should do the same and not wear bermuda shorts or even beach wear in the 3-million-inabitant-metropoly. Such an outfit makes it even easier for pickpockets to select their prey…

Fuente del Berro Park

by agarcia

The fact is that after living all my live in the same city, the possibility of discovering new places by chance is still open. A remarkable fact that, in a way, forces me to be alert whenever I'm walking any "unknown" neighborhood of Madrid. Which is exactly the case with Fuente del Berro Park, a place situated near the main telecommunications antenna of the city (see picture), an area that I had always imagined as a suburban and boring one, but that just happen to have a delicious park, with a charming lakes, free peacocks and a fountain which waters had healing qualities (or so the local people affirms). The nearest Metro station is O'Donnell.


by paoseo about Ducados cafe

Very nice place.
Entrying you are in a sort of bar-cafè that could be aslo a restaurant. Downstairs there is the disco When you're in plaza del Sol, go down S.jeronimo Stret and you'll get to Plaza de canalejas.
It's next to Alcalà, there is also a metro station next to it.
