help for Itinerary in Andalucia

Jump to last reply

I'm having trouble figuring out the best itinerary for a trip to So. Spain for 10 days at end April- early May 2013. It's my husband's first trip to Spain, and I was last there 40 yrs. ago! We fly into Madrid, where we will stay 1 night, then I thought AVE to Cordoba ( 1 night), rent car and drive to Granada ( 2 nights), drive through Ronda en route to Sevilla ( 3 nights). We have one more night ( total of 8). I understand there are many beautiful spots, including Jerez, Cádiz, Arcos. Can those be day trips from Sevilla, or would it be better to spend the night in Ronda? Should we spend 2 nights in Cordoba? Are these distances too far? My husband really likes the freedom of driving and exploring. I understand having a car in the cities is not a practical idea. I thought we could fly to Madrid from Sevilla, then home w/out another night, if the timing is possible.
Since I don't know the region, the distances, road conditions, etc. it is hard for me to know what's best. I really appreciate everyone's help.
