Travel Photo Thursday — February 2, 2012 — Historical Toledo — A Sunny View

Posted by on Feb 2, 2012 in Uncategorized | 22 comments


Welcome to another week of Travel Photo Thursday. On Tuesday I decided to head out of Madrid, and visit Toledo on a day tour. Bus tours are really not my thing, but I knew that if I wanted to make the most of a day in Toledo I really had no choice. The tour was pleasant, and gave me a great feel for this historic city. I’ve put it on my list to return. At some point I want to wander the narrow streets, sit by the river, and catch the feel of the city at every time of day and night.

I’m sharing one of my favorite shots of the day.

To join in the Travel Photo Thursday fun simply post a photo on your blog. Return here and place your link in the Mr. Linky at the bottom of this post.

Please post a link to a post featuring a travel photo, not simply a link to your blog.

A view of sunny Toledo on a cold, sunny day….

Historical Toledo on a Cool, Sunny Winter Day


I booked this tour through Madrid City Tours. The cost with lunch (optional) was 70 Euro, and I thought it was good value. We had a very knowledgeable guide, Anna, who provided interesting facts and stories of each site we visited. I was able to book online easily with a my credit card.
