3 weeks (actually 20 nights!) in Spain

Jump to last reply

We are an 'older' couple travelling by public transport to three areas of Spain in May/June 2015.
Andalucia - 7 nights
Madrid/San Sebastien - 6/7 nights
Barcelona - 7/6 nights
The itinerary at present is Melbourne to Madrid (arr 2pm) and straight to Seville by train departing Atocha at 6.30pm (4 1/2 hours hopefully enough to allow for not-too-late arrival, customs, baggage, train to Atocha etc). 5 nights in Seville (poss inc day trip to Cordoba and/or Ronda), then 2 in Granada.
Train from Grandada to Madrid (3n); train from Madrid to SS (3n with day-trip to Bilbao)
Train from SS (or poss Bilbao if more sensible to go direct from there) to Barcelona where we meet up with our son and partner who live in Sweden.

Despite many fascinating hours reading Fodors, TA etc I'm still unsure about:
1.Should 5 n in Seville, 2 in Granada be 4 and 3?
2. or would 3 in Seville, 2 in Granada and 2 somewhere else (Cordoba, Ronda, Cadiz?somewhere else?) be even better?
3.If we reduce our week in Barcelona to 6 nights, where to spend the additional night?
4. Spain is huge and I know we've left out heaps of wonderful places, but I think we're pushing it already with what we're doing. Open however to suggestions!

I'd be hugely grateful for comments on the itinerary as a whole, as well as specific answers to above. And btw, we hate 'one-nighters' unless they're absolutely unavoidable. Thank you!
