How should we divide our days in Andalucia Mar/Apr '14

Jump to last reply

I'm trying to get an idea of how many days I should plan for our first trip to southern Spain. Usually we like to travel to Europe in May but in 2014 we will be traveling the last of March and finish before mid April. I'd like to plan for 21-24 nights in Spain for this trip. We will fly in an out of Madrid from the east coast of the US.

From the research I've done so far I would like to include Toledo, Sevilla, Cordoba and Granada traveling by train after our arrival to Madrid and then renting a car to explore the Pueblos Blancos with possibly a day trip to the Costa del Sol as I don't expect this time period will be good beach weather.

I'm not sure how many days for each of the cities so I can use the remainder for our exploration by car. I think I'd like to end the trip with 3 nights in Madrid which would allow about 21 nights for Toledo and Andalucia.

Which order of visiting would make for the better travel flow?

Thanks for any recommendations/suggestions that will help me plan my trip. I don't know why but even though this will be our third trip to Spain, Spain always seems to be more complicated to plan for me ;;) Deborah
