I traveled from Madrid to Aranjuez, with train (Renfe Cercanias) took around 45 minutes. (If you had applied Madrid Metro Card which can use unlimited package, then with train or green bus, there's no extra transportation charge). Aranjuez is a peaceful city which doesn't have...More

This palace has been lovingly restored, and is a joy to visit. It's also a stroll from the pretty town of Aranjuez.

The trip on the train is nice enough, getting to Aranjuez takes about an hor from Madrid. The palace is the centerpiece of town and well worth the trip. The palace is huge, the gardens equally big and peaceful, a nice getaway from the city....More
