Itinerary in Spain April 29-May 10 - Any problems?

Jump to last reply

NOTE: For Fodorites who followed my earlier posts in the UK and France areas, we have scrapped our plans to take our sons & their wives this spring. It proved utterly impossible to coordinate vacation days at their jobs. We'll try again in the fall. My wife and I decided to go to Spain instead.]

We have tentatively planned the following and are hoping to get the air tickets in the next day or two:

Apr 29 - PHL to MAD
Apr 30-May 3 - Madrid
May 3 - morning train to Sevilla
May 3-4 - Sevilla
May 5 - morning train to Granada
May 5-6 - Granada
May 7 - morning train to Cordoba
May 7 - morning of May 8 - Cordoba
May 8 - afternoon train to Madrid
May 9 - Madrid
May 10 - MAD-PHL

I know this is a little rushed with 2-3 hours on the train on each travel day (but we spent a week in Madrid in 2006 and have been to Segovia, Toledo and El Escorial)...

...but my main question is:

Other than May Day (which can't be avoided), are there any other snags of which I should be aware on those days?
