How to Spend 1 Day in Toledo

How to Spend 1 Day in Toledo

Dramatically positioned on a hill above Castilla-La Mancha, Toledo is known as the City of Three Cultures because of its medieval mix of Arab, Jewish, and Christian monuments. Here are a few ways to make the most of one day in the ancient Spanish city.

Morning: Take in the City’s Sights

Many travelers visit Toledo on a day trip from Madrid. Most tour options include transport from the capital, which saves you the stress of booking train or bus tickets separately. Regardless of whether you’re daytripping or staying the night, tours provide a great intro to the city and typically stop at the Alcázar of Toledo, the Jewish Quarter, the Monastery of San Juan de los Reyes, and the Church of Saint Tomé, home to a painting by El Greco, the city’s most famous son. Alternatively, a hop-on hop-off bus tour lets you explore at your own pace.

Afternoon: Sample the Region’s Flavors

Devote the afternoon to the flavors of Montes de Toledo on a wine and food tour of the neighboring region. Tours let you taste wines with a local sommelier and offer insight into growing practices. Along with wine tasting, you'll typically taste foods from the Montes de Toledo region, such as cheese, olive oil, venison, and wild boar.

For more culinary delights, head to Plaza de Zocodover, where you’ll find a cluster of tapas bars and restaurants housed in historic buildings.

Night: Delve Deeper

There are several options for exploring Toledo by night. History buffs can learn more about the Knights of Templar on an evening walking tour of places associated with the mysterious medieval order; guides point out hidden symbols scattered around the city and tell tales about the noble warriors. These tours typically finish with a dinner prepared using gourmet products from the Castilla-La Mancha region.

Another option for oenophiles is more wine: evening wine shows tend to include a virtual tour of the region’s wineries, tastings of different varietals, and traditional Spanish tapas.
