Many travelers to Spain pass by Toledo, but those who choose to visit for a few days will be well rewarded. It has wonderful winding cobbled streets that weave through its old town. There's a great 13th century cathedral that is truly a highlight of the town as well as some Roman ruins that sit just outside the city walls. Toledo has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1986 and is great as a multi day trip, or simply a day trip from Madrid.

You can travel to Toleda by bus or train from Madrid. There's a high speed train that will make the trip in just over half an hour and will cost you about twenty euros for the round trip ticket. The bus takes about an hour and leaves every hour from Madrid's Plaza ElĂ­ptica bus station. These round trip tickets cost just under ten euros.

Most people choose to spend their time in Toledo exploring the Old Town area which is quaint with cobblestone streets. It does have a surprisingly high number of vehicles however which can detract somewhat from the ambiance. Top sights in the area include Iglesia de los Jesuitas, which will give you some great views of the city, Mezquita Cristo de la Luz, Iglesia del Salvador, the Sinagoga de Santa Maria la Blanca, and Monasterio de San Juan de Los Reye. The best way to spend your time in Toledo is simply wandering the streets. Take in the city's ambiance while you pass by some of the town's most popular sights. Definitely allow yourself some time to get lost, as that is part of the appeal of this town.

If you're in the market for a souvenir, Toledo has some interesting local specialties. The town is well known for its swords, which could set you back as much as $300. Shops will ship the item home as a sword might raise some eyebrows when you board a plane. The area is also well known for glazed ceramics, as well as damascene, a local technique for inter fusing gold on iron or steel to make plates or jewelry.
