10 Days in Barcelona and Madrid....need help with itinerary!!

Jump to last reply

I just booked a trip to Spain! Traveling in late March, early April flying into Barcelona, staying for 5 days and then headed to Madrid (not sure if by train or flight) for 5 more days and heading home from there. I thought 5 days would give enough time to not only see the city, but also the surrounding countryside/villages. We are not really into art, but we love museums. We also love anything active, as we are both young and full of energy.

I wanted to spend three days in Barcelona which leaves us two days for day trips. We would like to see a good beachside town, and any other neat small towns nearby.

I also wanted to spend three days in Madrid, exploring the city. For one of the day trips I want to explore Toledo, which leaves us one day open day for another short trip.

Hotels are already booked and paid for, so there is no changing the amount of time spent in each city.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
