Madrid - Madrid - 9 days

Jump to last reply

Just bought tickets to go to Spain - we fly in on a Sat morning, and leave the following Sunday. We have to include Malaga ( directive from DH). We love driving, and feel like we see more of the countryside that way. At the same time, while we are not big on museums, we are big on walking around, enjoying local culture, food...and historic sites. Accordingly here is the tentative schedule I am thinking of. Can you please critique -

Saturday - Arrive - 8am Sat Morning . Flight to Barcelona at 11:30am.
Sunday - Day tour of Barcelona
Monday - Pick up rental car; drive to Montserrat. After visit, drive to somewhere near Alhambra. We take a leisurely drive from Montserrat to this place we are yet to decide on. A scenic, casual, drive. However we want to be near enough to Alhambra so that we can then do the Alhambra tour.
Tuesday - Tour Alhambra - spend night in same place
Wednesday - Drive to Malaga.
Thursday - Stay in Malaga.
Friday - Drive to Madrid; return car.
Saturdary - Stay in Madrid
Sunday - Fly out.

What are your thoughts? Look forward to all suggestions.

Thanks,

D
