Spain & Italy - questions

Jump to last reply

Hi! This will be the itinerary for a short trip to Spain and Italy for May 2016. I'm in the very early stages of planning, but this is what it looks like so far. 2 days Madrid, 1 day Toledo, 2 days Valencia, 4 days Barcelona, 1 day Milan, 1 day Como, 1 day Verona, 3 days Venice = 15 days total. It's only for a taste of each place.

I do think Madrid has too little time but I'm not so that interested in museums and I come across that more than anything in "to-do" lists. This is what I have
1) Royal Palace
2) Madrid Cathedral
3) Going to a flamenco restaurant
4) The Prado
5) Goya Museum

I know there is so much more to do but for now I think it would be a good introduction to the place. However, I see so many people spend several days (1 week+) in Madrid. Are there any places that absolutely unmissable for first-timers? If I find that there is enough for 2 more days that I have to see now I'll remove Valencia.

For Como, Italy, I am planning to make a day-trip from Milan. This is what my itinerary looks like for the day:
1) ~8:20 train to Varenna, spend an hour there
2) 10:23-10:35 ferry to Bellagio, spend 3 hours there, get something to eat
3) 1:30-1:46 ferry to villa Carlotta, spend an hour there
4) 2:56-2:59 ferry to villa del Balbianello, spend 2 hours there
5) 5:15-6:00 ferry to Como, snap some pics and train back to Milan.

Does this seem reasonable?
