I am not a "big city" person and prefer small, atmospheric towns. In the Spain book, RS says stay in Madrid and day trip to surrounding cities. Any advice on flipping that and staying in Segovia and day tripping into Madrid? Would Segovia be entertaining enough, or would I miss a great deal by not staying in Madrid? It also will be our 1st stop (jet lag) so I'm thinking Segovia could be a more gentle start to our trip.
At the end our our route we will stay in Toledo before flying home.
Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.
