Two days to spend in either Toledo or Segovia

Husband and myself (70's enjoy history, walking, markets, etc.) have 2 days extra to spend - thought we would make it either Toledo or Segovia. Any advice? Accomodation advice also appreciated.

There is much more to see in Toledo than Segovia. Read the top questions in the Toledo forum.

I would recommend Toledo, I believe you will have time to see the most important attractions there in 2 days. I would suggest Oasis Backpackers Hostel for accommodation.

In case you would like to know which places to visit you can check this:

I have been to both and I would recommend Toledo. It is more lively with locals. Segovia to me it felt like an open air museum with mostly tourists. The aquaduct there was impressive but after a few hours I had seen enough. In Toledo I spent 3 or 4 days and could have enjoyed it for longer. Lots of nice restaurants, good museums and synagogues with exhibitions, the ancient bridge, the cute maze of streets, nice shopping, and as said the amount of locals is nicer.

I stayed in one of the cutest apartments I ever stayed in, in the very center. Small but beautiful, charming place and super friendly owner. And at a good price. Let me know in case you want the link. (I do believe 2 nights is the minimum.)

P.S. See my advice about the escalators in this post: https://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g18748…

Don't waste money and time on a bus or taxi once in Toledo.
