Overthinking Itinerary? Aug 17 - Sept 4 - Please help!!!

Jump to last reply

Your insight would be most appreciated! First trip to Spain, with husband and 4 year old (easy traveler). I struggle with what to omit, but need to schedule flights asap. Barcelona and Granada are a must. There is festival in Bilbao I'm interested in Aug 17 - 24 and also one in Barcelona Aug 14 - 22. I understand Seville is fantastic, but I am unsure whether we should skip due to the heat. My main concerns are heat in far south and whether we can skip Madrid. Would Madrid be just as hot as Seville? Or better to skip Seville for Madrid?

Itinerary A:
Aug 17th - 21st -- Arrive Bilbao/San Sebastian 4 nights - fly to Barcelona
Aug 21st - 27th -- Barcelona 6 nights- fly to Granada
Aug 27th - 29th -- Granada 2 nights - train to Seville
Aug 29th - Sept 2nd -- Seville 4 nights (1 day trip to Cordoba) - train to Madrid or Malaga
Sept 2nd - 4th -- 2 nights Madrid or Malaga - fly home

Itinerary B:
Aug 17th - 21st -- Arrive Bilbao/San Sebastian 4 nights - drive to Madrid (stop for lunch in Borges)
Aug 21st - 23rd -- Madrid - 2 nights - Train to Granada
Aug 23rd - 25th -- 2 nights Granada - train to Seville
Aug 25th - 29th -- 4 nights Seville (day trip Cordoba) - Fly to Barcelona
Aug 29th - Sept 4th -- Barcelona - 6 nights - fly home

Itinerary C:
Aug 17 - 23rd -- Barcelona - 6 nights (fly to Bilbao)
Aug 23 - 27th -- Bilbao 4 nights - (fly to Seville)
Aug 27 - 31st -- Seville 4 nights (day trip Cordoba) - bus or train to Granada
Aug 31st - Sept 3rd -- Granada 3 nights
Sept 3rd - Sept 4th -- 1 night Madrid or Malaga - fly home

Itinerary D - No Stop in Madrid
Aug 17 - 23rd -- Barcelona 6 nights (fly to Granada)
Aug 23rd - 26th -- Granada 3 nights
Aug 26 - Aug 30 -- Seville 4 nights
Aug 30 - Sept 4th - 5 nights Bilbao/San Sebastian - fly home

Again, many thanks for your insights and/or advice!
