Is it too rush?

I will be arriving in Barcelona from cruise on Tues and leaving on Sunday. So in total I would have 6 days in Barcelona. Do you think I should go to Madrid as well in between? Will it be too rush? Would love to see Toledo. Any suggestions?

That'd probably be too rush, and you'd miss a lot from Barcelona. Note that going to Madrid (f.e. by high speed train) takes 3 hours plus whatever time to "settle" so in all you'd be investing almost a day (one way+return). Also notice that a 1 day escapade to Madrid is far too short, the city needs more days to be appreciated.

Hola Sandrang,

Barcelona, Madrid, Toledo and back - all in 6 days. That's less than 2 days in each place including travel time. If you really want to see Toledo, just say so and we'll help you plan it. But have a look at the Toledo website first and decide if it's worth all your effort.


Roughly, it would be high speed train Barcelona - Madrid (2.5 hrs), high speed train Madrid - Toledo (30 min).
