10 day Spain trip - which cities?

Jump to last reply

Hey guys, just looking for some advice about travelling in Spain for 10 days in July.

We land in Madrid at 9am and plan to catch a train straight to Zaragoza and spend the afternoon and night there. The next morning travelling by train to Barcelona for the day and night. The next day will be spent on a day trip to Montserrat and when back in Barcelona at the end of the day, going by train to Valencia for that night and the following day. After spending the day in Valencia, we were thinking about going back to Madrid for a night. Then we wanted to do Córdoba, Granada, Málaga, Ronda, Sevilla and back to Madrid through Toledo.

We are both in our mid-twenties and very active, and roughly know what we want to see in each city/town. The aforementioned is our ideal itinerary and we understand it effectively means one day and night in each city/town and we were wondering if that was really feasible? Or if we are stretching ourselves too thin? If so, are there any cities/towns that we should cut out of this trip?

Also, we have yet to purchase train passes because we were unsure if trains or buses were the better option for the locations we have planned? Or a combination of the two?

Finally, we are travelling to Portugal and Morocco as well, and the entire trip is 35 days. What would be the best type of packing for this duration and busy itinerary? Backpacking or suitcase?

Many thanks !
