Honeymoon in Spain & Paris

Jump to last reply

We're trying to make our final decisions on a last minute honeymoon in Spain & Paris. We're due to fly out 10/28 for 2 weeks.

Our original plan was to actually just keep it to Spain and do Madrid, Granada (Alhambra), and Barcelona. However, we've been talking it over, and given that this is likely our last trip to Europe for many years, we thought it would be good to try and include Paris as it's one of my favorites in Europe. (I've been to Europe a few times, this is her first.)

I think it might be too much to fit 3 locations in Spain + Paris in just 2 weeks. We don't want to constantly feel like we're running around. (It's our honeymoon, afterall!) However, we can't decide what to cut out to make Paris fit.

I think we're set on Madrid, so we're thinking either Barcelona or the Alhambra. I've heard from several people that the Alhambra is a must-see, but it's going to eat up a better part of 2-days of a limited number of days. Is it worth going out of our way to see?

For reference, our interests are historical sights, nature, architecture, and good eats. We're not big museum goers, but we do want to visit and see the famous pieces.

Thanks for any help and advice!
