I am heading to Spain in just a few weeks and am trying to establish where I am spending my month in Spain.
After reading endless blogs, posts and reviews here is what I think I would enjoy... nothing is set in stone so would appreciate any feedback –particularly around time in Seville/Cadiz/Jerez and also how do I best make a day trip to Gibraltor from one of those locations. I intend on using a tour group for 8 days to visit Toledo/Cordoba/Granada/Ronda/ending in Seville to make this easier and seamless for the start of my trip.
I love the beach, wine, mountains/landscapes and I’m a huge fan of architecture. I also like to relax, hence my long stays in Cadiz (or similar) and Barcelona.
Trip is 30days/29nights in total - flying in and out of Barcelona for the whole of September.
Day 1 – Early morning international arrival into Barcelona - AVE train to Madrid
Day 2 - Madrid (join tour group in afternoon) (overnight in Madrid)
Day 3 - Toledo (overnight stay in Madrid)
Day 4 - Cordoba (overnight stay in Cordoba)
Day 5/6 - Granada (2 nights in Granada)
Day 7 - Ronda (overnight stay in Ronda)
Day 8 - Seville (overnight stay in Seville)
TRAVELLING SOLO (depart tour group mid-morning of Day 9)

Day 18/19/20 – Train to Madrid (3 nights in Madrid) – to include day trip to Avila and Sergovia
Day 21 – Train to Barcelona (9 nights in Barcelona)
