We will be heading to Spain in early May and still have some flexibility in our itinerary. From reading posts on this forum and others and from our own previous travel experience we were thinking about spending 3 days in Toledo and 2 in Madrid before heading to Seville and other cities in Spain.
It seems that many people make Toledo just a day trip, but from all I've read it seems that there is so much to see exploring the city at a more leisurely pace, especially in the evening when all the tour buses depart. In previous trips to Europe we have enjoyed the local flavor of smaller cities, but Toledo seems to offer so much history we thought 3 days would be fine. I've also ready that many people use Madrid as a base but also spend more time there.
I realize this is subjective but if anyone can provide some insights and suggestions on more time in Toledo vs Madrid I would appreciate it.
Thanks in advance
