Madrid and Cordoba Itinerary Help

Jump to last reply

We land in Madrid from Dubai (originally from Australia) on Saturday the 1st of September mid-afternoon. Once settled into our accommodation in Plaza Mayor we will walk from Puerta Del Sol to the Royal Palace and Almudena Cathedral. Will visit the Palace as should be enough time since it closes at 8 pm and might(?) have time to visit the Cathdral. May take a horse and carriage orientation tour after this as well.

The following day (Sunday) intend to visit the Rastro flea market, Parc El Retiro and visit the Prado either by paying or after 5 pm when it is free. On the Monday I have planned a day trip to Toledo – should arrive back in Madrid after 6 pm so night out later at tapas etc. The current plan has us spending the next day, Tuesday, in Madrid and leaving for Seville with a stopover (4 hours) in Cordoba.

I am debating whether to leave Madrid instead on Tuesday late afternoon (a bit more Madrid touring in the morning) and stay in Cordoba that night. This would give us a good look at Cordoba and not having to store luggage etc. Could you please let me know what your thoughts are about cutting short Madrid and instead having more time in Cordoba?
