Regular Cercanías trains to Aranjuéz travel from Madrid's Atocha
railway station. Buses leave from Estación
del Sur de autobuses. By car Aranjuéz
is reached by taking the N-IV (direction Andalucía)
south from the city.
The first thing one notices when approaching
Aranjuéz is its lush greenery, in sharp
contrast to the surrounding arid landscape.
The principal points of interest here are
the 18th century Palacio Real (Royal
Palace), the Casa del Labrador (Labourer's
Cottage) and some exceptionally fine gardens,
especially the Jardin del Príncipe
(Prince's Gardens). Since Aranjuéz
lies about halfway between Madrid and Toledo,
one might consider making a single outing
from Madrid to visit both sites.

Tren del a Fresa (Strawberry Train) a classic old style railway service, will take you there every Saturday and Sunday from the 28th of april to July 1st, and from the 15th of September to October 14th.
