3.5 week itinerary for Spain - need help filling in details

Jump to last reply

Me: 30yo female solo traveler heading out for a 10 week adventure. I’m planning on 3 ½ weeks in Spain (between Portugal and Italy). Budget is $1,000USD/week and I always opt to spend more on food than on lodging (most of which is booked). I will be traveling in Spain from Jan 29-Feb 20 before heading to either France or Italy. I will happily spend 6+ hours walking, enjoy fine art museums, am not terribly interested in ruins, drink a healthy amount of wine, am obsessed with food, and will go to any UNESCO site within a reasonable distance. I’m not renting a car during this portion of the trip.

What I need from my Fodors friends: suggestions on interesting things to do and see, great restaurants that are under $25 for lunch/$35 for dinner (including wine!), perfect spots for sipping wine and watching locals do their thing, fascinating walking tours of the cities I’m visiting, and hidden gems you stumbled upon on past trips. Did I mention wine?

Itinerary:
Seville – 5 nights (renting apt)
Malaga – 3 nights
Granada – 2 nights
Cordoba – 1 night
Toledo – 2 nights
Madrid – 3 nights
Barcelona – 7 nights (renting apt)

Is this the right amount of time for each place? Any that I should shorten or lengthen?
