Spain Itinerary - Andalusia

Jump to last reply

We will be in Spain for 16 nights starting mid-September, flying into Madrid. It will be our first time in Spain. I'm 63 and my husband is 70 (he's athletic and in excellent shape but had knee replacement surgery 4 months ago--recovery going very well). We love museums, art, history, wine and great food (not necessarily in that order). I've booked Madrid for 4 nights and Barcelona for 4 nights at the end. (We're heading to Provence after Barcelona where I am doing a painting workshop.)

It's the 8 nights in the middle I need to plan now. I'm thinking Madrid to Cordoba (stay 2 nights), Cordoba to Granada (stay 3 nights), Granada to Sevilla (stay 3 nights), then Sevilla to Barcelona. Perhaps I need to do shorter stays, but I do enjoy a leisurely pace and the chance to enjoy a city.

A couple of friends have strongly recommended we see Ronda, so I'm wondering if I should cut a night somewhere in order to stay there one night. Is it really worth the effort to get there? I usually prefer to stay at least 2 nights somewhere, but if one or two 1-nighters are worth it, I'll reconsider.

Also, any great hotel suggestions are welcome. (I've already booked Madrid--the NH Paseo del Prado. I want to stay in Eixample in Barcelona, and I'm thinking the Murmuri. I don't know too much about the other cities as far as places to stay.)

Thank you to anyone who takes the time to give advice.
