Madrid vs Andalucía

Jump to last reply

My partner and I are visiting Spain for the very first time, flying into Madrid March 26 and departing 8 days later. In a week, we're certainly not going to see it all, but being a New Yorker, I wanted to get some time away from the big city, so in addition to Madrid, I'm planning on some time in the Andalucía.

Day 1 & 2: Arrive in Madrid, take train to Seville. 2 nights in Seville.
Day 3 & 4: 2 nights in Granada.
Day 5: 1 night in Cordoba.
Day 6 - 8: 3 nights in Madrid, which allows for one day to explore Madrid, and perhaps a day to visit Toledo.

This is a little more jumping around than I wanted to do, and I'm almost wondering if I should just add two nights in Andalucía, and only spend one night in Madrid, in order to catch my morning flight the next morning.

Would it be crazy not to spend a few nights in Madrid?
