  • Arrived at the station immediately from the airport of Madrid, as this is where the yellow bus comes. It has about 26 paths. The trains are very comfortable and high-speed. Toledo is 70 km away. We drove in about 25 minutes. The station is like a huge park with a lot of greenery. Very beautifully everything is thought out. Oasis in the city with the smart bugs) Impressive. If you do not have a rail route - look specifically.
