Advice on Spain

Jump to last reply

My boyfriend and I are traveling to Spain at the end of September for 15 days. At this point the itinerary looks like this
Land in Athens 8 am 9/22 and head to
Cordoba for 2 nights
Granada for 2 nights
Torremolinos or Mijas for 2 nights (we need a place to stay to scuba dive one day)
Seville 3 nights (I want to be in Seville on Sunday if at all possible for the arts market at the Bellas Artes Museum)
Cadiz (or any recommendation for 2 nights)
Athens for 4 nights with a day trip to Toledo

As travelers we like to see the sites, shop and eat and drink consequently this may not seem like a very aggressive schedule. I am looking for some advice.
1. Should we drive or take the train…I prefer the train but renting a car even with adding the price of gas seems cheaper and may give us some freedoms we might not otherwise have.
2. Am I being foolish to build a trip around one day at an Arts Market in Seville is there a better (i.e. more logical route)?
3. Torremolinos or Mijas any preferences for one over the other?
4. We like to spend a couple of days at a town that would be of the beat and path so the 2 nights in Cadiz could easily be replaced.
Any recommendations will be appreciated.
