If you are already in one of the many cheap accommodations in Madrid, it is really easy to plan a 1-day trip to Toledo: two affordable options are available for that purpose. One is to take the Madrid-Toledo high speed train (the journey only lasts 33 minutes). Another option is to take one of the Toledo buses and the journey will last between 60 and 105 minutes but this option is cheaper than the first one.

Toledo was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1986. The city has a very particular geographic situation: it is surrounded by the Tajo River and the city is walled since the roman period. Moreover it is one of the few cities in Spain where Muslim, Christian and Jewish cultures coexist peacefully. Currently, tourism in Toledo is one of the most main economic activities and this is all in the fact that the city not only offers architectural or cultural attractions but also because it offers interesting gastronomic options: bars, theatres, night clubs… so as the possibility to enjoy adventure sports.
