itinerary help for 2 weeks in Spain

Jump to last reply

My husband and I and our two adult children will be traveling to Spain for 2 weeks this October. We enjoy cultural and historical sights as well as exploring natural areas while hiking. We particularly enjoy local music, food and festivals. We fly in and out of Madrid. We plan to spend about half our time in Madrid and its environs and the other half in Barcelona and its environs. We are trying to decide how many days to spend where. Ideally we would like to spend time in Toledo, Segovia and Avila as well as Madrid. When visiting Barcelona we would also like to go to Montserrat, Sitges and Figueres or Girona. Our biggest question is should we rent a car as we leave Madrid to visit the smaller towns and then drive to Barcelona stopping for the night in Zaragoza, which looks very interesting. We would return the car in Barcelona upon arrival. We would then fly or train back to Madrid from Barcelona. Alternatively, we could train everywhere around Madrid and then fly or train to Barcelona and back. Since there are 4 adults, I think the car could be more economical and we do like to have the flexibility/convenience of a car. We have taken road trips in the UK, Europe and Australia so this would not be our first time driving outside the US. However, the train/ flying would save time. I must admit I am a little worried about trying to get train tix on renfre. I've read it can be quite a challenge. I would appreciate any input from all you lovers of Spain. Thank you, Jeanne
