Spain Easter Trip...HELP!!!!!!

Jump to last reply

Our family of 2 adults and 3 kids (16, 12 and 9) are traveling into Madrid Holy Thursday and staying in Madrid until Easter Sunday with a day trip to Toledo to see Semana Santa on Good Friday or Holy Saturday. We return home from Barcelona and plan to spend 4 nights in Barcelona. We have 4 nights between Madrid and Barcelona from Easter Sunday till Thursday to see more of Spain. I am having the hardest time deciding if we go to Seville for 2 nights, then Granada for 2 nights, Marbella, then Nerja or Granada, or just pick 1 location and do day trips to Granada and possibly Ronda. We will fly to Barcelona from Malaga or Granada. We are fairly fast paced. Our last European adventure was 2 nights in Venice, 3 in Rome, driving from Rome to San Gimignano for 3 nights, driving to Cinque Terre for 2 nights with a quick stop in Pisa and driving to Milan for a night at the airport hotel. We did not feel crazy rushed and got a taste of many Italian areas we would love to return to one day. We love beach areas, culture, parks, unique architecture. Keeping kids and parents all happy can be a challenge, but we usually do well balancing it all. I'll take any suggestions or ideas on what we should see, do and where to stay for those 4 nights. Is anything going on anywhere in Southern Spain on Easter Sunday? Are shops open on Easter Monday? Being a family of five, we find that it's easier to rent apartments and most have a 2 night minimum although we would consider a 1 night hotel stay and 3 nights in another area. I'll also take any things we should not miss. Our son is begging to go to Gibralter but only to see the monkeys. I don't think that's going to happen, but you never know.
