mom will watch kids for a week next may-where to go?

Jump to last reply

Hi all. We love Paris and have been there 3 times in the last 8 years. We also spent a week in Provence during one of the trips. We are from NYC are are ideally city people-love museums, churches, walking, foodies and the vibe and energy a city has. We have not been away for 2 1/2 years wo the kids and my mom said she will watch them next may for a week (8 days max and that might be stretching it!). We are very comfortable in Paris and we rent the same apt each time too. For us it is a relaxing vacation-we are in one place, walk everywhere, don't rent a car and eat meals out. Nightlife is not important. We also don't want to rush the experience. Now I am doing my best to get out of this comfort zone and go somewhere else. We want to ideally stay in 1 place with a side trip or two. Have been throughtout England, bits of Scotland, Rome, Florence, Venice and Milan and lived in Madrid about 20 years ago as a student.
Have narrowed it down to either:
Madrid w sidetrips to Toledo and Segovia
Barcelona for 4 or 5 days and side trips to Costa Brava
Any comments or suggestions appreciated. Need to book the ff miles!
