10 Days in Spain is this do-able or nuts?

Jump to last reply

What say you, Fodorites. Is this crazy? Before I pull the plug on lodgings, I've been trying to come up with a do-able itinerary. I see there is no direct AVE train service from Barcelona to Seville or Cordoba, and I don't relish the idea of spending 8-9 hours in a car, hence the backtracking. I depart the US on Sept 24, arriving in Madrid early on the 25th. I just plan on getting my bearings for the remainder of the day and relaxing. Sept 25-28, Madrid with a day trip to Toledo on one of those days. Sept 29, train to Seville and spend 2 nights. Sept 31, depart for Cordoba and spend 2 nights. Oct 2, take an early train to Madrid and then on to Barcelona. Spend 3 nights there. Oct 5, take a late morning or early afternoon train back to Madrid, splurging on a nice hotel. Depart for the States on Oct. 6. Yes, I should have flown into Madrid/Barcelona and out the other, but I booked my tickets late at night and had to do it over the phone due to my CC company having great fraud protection (I had to jump through hoops to get authorized and during the time I was on the phone, several prime seats got snapped up!). Of course all of this depends on the train gods cooperating.
