I always get good advice and suggestions here.
We are set to fly to Madrid the last week of March. We have an apartment in the Barrio de las Letras (sp? sorry..) for the entire week.
Not counting the day we arrive, and the day we leave, we will have 6 full days in Madrid. We plan to take at least two day trips, to see Toledo and Segovia.
I am considering a third day trip. Maybe. ? Not sure where... Maybe El Escorial, on one of the bus tours, or maybe we should take the fast train to Valencia or Cuenca for the day? I don't know!
Will three full days in Madrid proper give us a satisfying taste of the city, or should we add a fourth day? Or should we take three day trips with 3 days in Madrid?
For a third day trip, where would you go? Why?
We like history/art/ruins/architecture/cathedrals/wine (my 17 yr.old will be with us, so an all-day winery tour would be a waste and boring for her..) and taking photographs of scenery, buildings... Daughter and I are strict vegetarian, so I'm not a foodie (unless you know of a good vegan place somewhere, then tell me!)
Finally, we will not be renting a car.
