Andalucia plans/itinerary

Jump to last reply

Still in the planning stages for a trip to Spain (beginning in Madrid, ending in Barcelona) next fall. Looking for advice on what to see and the best modes of transportation. Our travel dates are sometime in late September until October 25.

We will have about three and a half weeks, planning for three or four days in Madrid at the beginning and then five days in Barcelona at the end. So- that leaves about two and a half weeks to travel through Andalucia.

The places on my list right now are: Seville, Cordoba, Granada, and the White Hill Towns. Maybe parts of Costa del Sol?

I am thinking that taking the train to Seville, staying a few days (how many?) would be a good start after Madrid.

Then take the train or bus to Cordoba (stay two days?)

Train to Grenada (three days?)

Rent a car as we depart from Granada and travel through the Pueblos Blancos/White Hill Towns and then on to Barcelona? Is there a "base" village or town where we could stay and plan day trips with our car? Maybe Ronda? Would driving along Costa del Sol be worthwhile? Any places we are missing? We will return the rental car as soon as we reach Barcelona.

We are a couple in our mid 60s, have traveled extensively in Europe and Central/South America. This will be my third trip to Spain (Castilla y Leon and Galicia) and my husband's second. neither of us has been to Andalucia. We've both driven rental cars in Spain. I speak passable Spanish. We enjoy cultural offerings, local communities, history, food, and walking. The idea of driving on smaller routes and through towns and villages is appealing to us, although we do want to sample the cultural and historical offerings of the big cities.

Any and all suggestions welcome and appreciated!
