Madrid has much less to offer than Barcelona...

Jump to last reply

I've been working on our late-August, early September trip to Spain. We're a 60-year old couple who's already traveled quite a lot in Europe, seen museums, seen castles, seen palaces...
We'll be arriving in Barcelona after a week in Israel, so no issue with jet-lag anymore.

3.5 extensive days in Barcelona, 1.5 relaxing days in Girona, 4.5 days in Madrid (those 0.5 days are set for transportation, of course...) before flying back home.
Can't change this itinerary since accommodations and train tickets were already paid for.
I also purchased the train tickets for a day trip in Toledo.

I'm researching Madrid online, got the book, went back-n-forth with those "must sees" in Madrid, and — frankly, unlike Barcelona — still, I'm not excited...

So my question is, how to spend our remaining 3.5 days in Madrid? Initially I was planning at least one more day-trip from Madrid, and that's one of the reasons I chose an accommodation which is 7 minutes walk to the Atocha train station... I'm fascinated by Cuenca, which is an hour train ride from there.

But before giving in to my instincts, I'd appreciate reading your opinions. Thanks so much!
