How to Spend 3 Days in Toledo

How to Spend 3 Days in Toledo

Toledo combines a dramatic hilltop setting with monuments from Christian, Jewish, and Muslim legacies. Add El Greco paintings and excellent regional produce to the mix and you’ve got one of Spain’s must-visit cities. Here’s how to make the most of three days in Toledo.

Day 1: City Sights

A great way to get acquainted with Toledo’s main landmarks is on a sightseeing tour. Group and private tours typically visit the Alcázar of Toledo, the Gothic Toledo Cathedral, the Jewish Quarter, the Monastery of San Juan de los Reyes, and the Church of Saint Tomé, home to a masterpieces by the Spanish Renaissance painter El Greco. Alternatively, a hop-on hop-off bus tour gives you the flexibility to set your own schedule and explore Toledo at your own pace.

In the evening, you can take a night tour that reveals the city’s association with the mysterious Knights of Templar, a medieval religious sect. Afterwards, head for the historic Plaza de Zocodover to take your pick of restaurants and tapas bars.

Day 2: Cultural Immersion

Start your day with a hot-air balloon ride over the city for the best views of the Old Town, River Tajo, and Alcázar. Hot-air balloon tours typically include brunch and a glass of Cava after landing.

 

Now that you’ve got your bearings, delve deeper into Toledo’s rich cultural heritage on a private tour of Toledo Cathedral, which allows you to skip long entrance lines and benefit from in-depth tours of the Primate Temple, Chapel of Kings, Chapel of San Blas, and masterpieces by El Greco, Velazquez, and Caravaggio. Art lovers can also visit Museo del Greco and Museo del Cruz, an arts and ceramics museum housed in a 16th-century hospital. 

 

Conclude your day with an introduction to the Castilla la Mancha region’s culinary culture during a cheese, olive oil, and wine tasting experience.

Day 3: Take a Trip

Although many travelers visit Toledo on a day trip from Madrid, the city is a good base from which to explore other parts of the region. Having thoroughly explored Toledo, you could easily spend your third day in another nearby town. Options include Consuegra, known for its windmills and association with the epic Don Quixote; the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Aranjuez, which you can also reach by train; and Chinchón, a charming town famous for its food festivals.

Skip the hassle of driving on a day trip to the historic city of Segovia. There, you can visit attractions such as the Roman-built aqueduct, the 16th-century Cathedral of Segovia, and the Alcázar of Segovia, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Tours often conclude in Madrid and offer a convenient way to combine return transport with a day of sightseeing.
