Help requested for travel planning in Spain

Jump to last reply

I have Thursday to Sunday available to travel in Spain from July 1 to July 26.
From Monday to Wednesday, I will be based in Madrid. I need to be in Madrid for work. I will be in Spain with my husband.

I am interested in world heritage sites type of travel, site seeing, architecture, etc, NOT shopping.

July 2-5 would like to take day trips. I have TOLEDO on my list
What other day trips are possible? What are must do day trips from Madrid?

Cordoba? Salamanca?

July 9-12- Take bus (because it is cheaper) to Sevilla and Granada. Anything else close to these to places? Close meaning I can go for the day and come back.

July 18-21- Fly to Barcelona- Is 3 days and 3 nights in Barcelona too much? Ayything else close to Barcelona? What is a budget airline from Madrid to Barcelona?

July 25-28- suggestions? Other day trips or any other must see place.

From the reading I have done, it looks like it is cheaper to travel by bus than by train? By train, I'm assuming Eurorail? Any other trains in Spain that is cheaper than Eurorail? I'm confused by the types of trains.

Thanks so much,
Deepa
