Help me plan my Spain itinerary!

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are planning a 7-8 day trip to Spain in the middle of October. We are in our early 30s, and our priorities are: 1) great food and drinks, 2) shopping from local artisans (clothes, art, jewelry, housewares, etc), and 3) getting lost in a city and walking around everywhere. We hit the major tourist spots, but we like to feel like locals and get lost in cities. We love great food and cocktails, but don't need true nightlife. I would also love for it to feel romantic!

I went to Barcelona about ten years ago and my husband has never been to Spain, but I think he is really interested in going to Barcelona. Given that, I am tempted to go to Barcelona but also other places I have never been before (I have never been elsewhere in Spain).

My understanding is that southern spain is more "spanish" and northern spain does not have that same feel. And given its our real first time in Spain (other than my quick Barcelona trip a while ago), my gut is saying go to southern spain for that true spanish experience, but I am not sure how to incorporate northern Barcelona with a trip to the south. I have also heard Seville can feel a little inauthentic and like "disney."

In short, I need help with an itinerary, which should probably include Barcelona and at least one other major destination. Thank you!
