Andalucia itinerary with kids

Jump to last reply

Hello all, I will be traveling to Spain with my wife and my 2 kids (5 yo and 2 yo) in May for 16 days. We arrive at Malaga (12pm) and depart from Valencia (1pm). Our initial plan is to stay 6 nights in Andalusia, 5 nights in Madrid, 3 nights in Barcelona and one in Valencia.

I'm looking for advice/comments in the Andalusia part of our trip. Here's our preliminary plan:
* Sunday. Arrive at Malaga at 12 pm. Spend the day. We're travelling from Canada so with the jet lag I'm not planning on doing much this day.
* Monday. Take a day trip to Ronda (1 h 45 each way). Return in the afternoon and spend another night in Malaga.
* Tuesday. Spend the morning in Malaga, then take the bus to Granada (2h). Spend the night there.
* Wednesday. Visit the Alhambra, then take the train in the afternoon (5pm) to Seville.
* Thursday. Spend the day in Seville,
* Friday. Spend the day in Seville or take a day trip to Cordoba. Night in Seville.
* Saturday. Take the train to Madrid.

As I said, this is still preliminary. We could cut Ronda and/or Cordoba if it's too rushed. We could also cut one night from Malaga to give more space to Seville maybe. Or maybe cut a day from Madrid or Barcelona to spend it in Andalusia.

We have traveled with our kids before. We'll have our baby carrier for our girl (2 years but petite) and an umbrella stroller for the boy for when he gets tired. That has worked fine for us in the past. So more than physical fatigue is keeping them distracted which is important. Oh, and we all speak Spanish so that's one less thing to worry about.

Any suggestions or comments are welcome. Thanks!
