Routes in Toledo
Toledo has many places and other ways to get to know the city. There are numerous ways to get around the city from an architectural, cultural, artistic, or gastronomic point of view. There are routes including convents, churches, bridges and towers, artistic routes and even of hidden heritage. It is possible in Toledo to discover new paintings by el Greco, Titian or Goya, to find out about medieval military architecture or enter inside ancient Roman caves or Arabic baths. It is just a question of getting organised and obtaining the necessary information.
So as not to miss even one option or to repeat a visit to a different Toledo, the best advice is to visit any of the tourist offices in the city and organise a series of itineraries.
The Municipal Council Tourist Board organises free guided tours, as does the Consortium of the City of Toledo of lesser-known monuments, archaeological sites and other places of interest that have been recovered and have not been open to visitors for years, and in some cases centuries.
Many tourist companies also offer this type of service with themed visits of Toledo at night, or medieval or mystic themes and which even include the chance to travel along the ancient streets of the Historic Quarter on Segway transporters and special vehicles.
Another option that many tourists use is the "Zocotren", a small train that, leaving from the central Plaza de Zocodover, makes a tour of the whole city, including the traditional panoramic views from the valley of the Tajo.
Travelling around Toledo is to feel its history, its legends and its centuries-old culture beneath your feet.
