2 weeks in Spain - Itinerary Advice Needed!

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are spending 2 full weeks in Madrid and Andalucia. We planned the following tentative itinerary:

Flying into Madrid - staying 4.5 days

Morning of 5th day, taking the AVE to Cordoba and staying 2 days.

Morning of 7th day, taking the AVE to Seville and staying 2 days.

Morning of 9th day, taking the train or bus to Granada and staying 2 days.

Morning of 11th day, taking the bus to Malaga and staying roughly 3 days.

Morning of 14th day: bus back to Madrid and flying home in the evening

Is this way too ambitious? I am torn between not wanting to overwhelm us and wanting to see as much as possible. I'm not sure when and if we'll be able to come back to the area. A lot of people suggested day trips but I honestly think staying at least a night or two in each place is less stressful than a bunch of day trips. We lose time traveling in the mornings changing towns, but since most places are within 2.5 hours of each other (or less), I'm hoping it won't feel too arduous.

Any advice on tweaks or changes (or whether I could possibly part with any of these cities) would be much appreciated!

Thanks!
