10-11 days in Spain with young children

Jump to last reply

We're planning a 10-11 day (depends on flight schedules) trip to Spain in late April/early May with our two daughters who will be just turning 5 and 3 at the time of the trip.

I'm torn between Madrid - Toledo (day trip) - Valencia (highly recommended by ex-pat friends who lived there) - Barcelona (I've been there before, my husband hasn't).

OR

Madrid - Granada - Tangier (am obsessed and really want to go) - Seville. With time to return to Madrid since we would have to return there for a flight back to States

With the kids being so young, we'd probably just hit 1 (2 max) sites a day in each location (e.g. just the Alhambra in Granada) and then spend the rest of the day strolling, eating, at a park, etc. The girls travel really well and are great with being on the go, but at the same time, I want to stay long enough in one place that we're not always on the move.

I feel like the first itinerary is probably the most logical and I just need to let go of my Tangier dream for this trip. But wanted to see what your thoughts were - any and all advice appreciated!

Thanks in advance!
