Route/itinerary advice needed

Jump to last reply

Hi Everyone! I'm planning our first family trip to Spain for next year. A little background: we have 2 kids, that will be 12 and 15 next summer. We like to stay in a city for 3-4 nights at least, and enjoy the sights and sounds of a place.

We'd like to visit Barcelona, Madrid, (Toledo as a day trip), Seville ( Cordoba as a day trip via train, Ronda day trip with rental car) and Granada.

Here's the tentative plan:
Fly in to Barcelona for 4 nights - Ave train to Seville for 5 nights - train to Granada for 3 nights - train to Madrid for 5 nights - fly back to London (our temp base in Europe).
17 nights total.

It would be cheaper to fly in and out of Madrid, but then Barcelona seems hard to fit into the itinerary. If you have a suggestion that starts and ends in Madrid and includes all the places we want to visit, please share!

Any recommendations on length of stay etc? I'd love some advice on that too.

Thank you!
Sue
