Spain Itinerary help

Jump to last reply

In researching our itinerary for Spain, I became intrigued with spending time north of Barcelona in the Costa Brava. We would have 3-4 days to explore, possibly based in Girona. Doing this would subtract from our time in Madrid, leaving only time for an overnight in Toledo and a day in Madrid itself. We are not "city oriented" and do enjoy just finding our way rather than hitting "must do's". But I am now wondering if the Costa Brava is as wonderful as my travel book makes it sound. I note that most travel books don't give the area much time. I am easily swayed by pretty words (a romantic, to be sure).

I would love input especially from those who are familiar with both areas. We will be in Barcelona in early May, and Madrid in early June for departure

. Most of our time will be spent in Granada, Seville, Cordoba, Ronda, and just exploring the white villages, Your input will be most appreciated! I keep changing my itinerary and it is past time to get a few necessary reservations.!

Muchas Gracias
