Looking for help in planning our first trip to Spain! Not sure where to start, we are still learning about the country... would welcome suggestions based on places we want to visit (see below)!

Note that departing Montreal, we would arrive in Barcelona 3 hours earlier than we would in Madrid. Also, starting Bareclona would be about 150$ cheaper per person (not the biggest deal, but a perk).

Arriving: September 18th (5:40 pm Madrid or 2:25 pm Barcelona)
Departing October 5th (3pm via Madrid or Barcelona)


Below are the places we want to visit (Feel free to recommend something else).


The two big cities:
Madrid (day trip Toledo)
Barcelona

Andalucia Region:

Seville (trip Coroba)
Granada (trip to Alhambra)
Marbella
Malaga


PLEASE NOTE: Worth mentioning in case this changes feedback, we have 400,000 points to use towards free nights at all Melia hotels in Spain (over 183 locations) thanks to a gift given to my fiancee. So we want to make sure we profit from a few nicer properties in the Andalucia (costa del sol) areas if possible....

Thanks to everyone in advance!
