Aranjuez is pretty close to Madrid and can be reached by train. The palace is in the middle of gardens. It can be visited easily and it is wonderful. It resembles the other royal palaces in Europe but has things that individualize it.

Half an hour of train (Cercanias #3 from Atocha in Madrid) found us in Aranjuez, one of the sites the Spanish royalty liked to summer in. Going there, I expected the usual: a castle or palace at the top of a hill surrounded by houses...More

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
