Spain Itinerary Help

Jump to last reply

Me and My Husband (both in early 30's) are traveling with a 2 year old in late Sep/early October 2016. We will have in total 13 days in Spain (not including flying times from US).

Background/Interests: We are looking for a relaxed pace this time, both number of hotel changes and things we can get done in a day. We really enjoy Architecture, Culture, Piazza Scene, Good food and local markets. We will like to keep down museum visits to two and castle/cathedral visits to 4-5 through the trip. If possible we will like to include a beach town for 2 days to unwind and just focus on food/relaxation. We have been to Europe before (without the baby) and cruised around 3 countries in 3 weeks. Our fav destination was Rome and some of the medieval tuscan towns.

We have not booked our tickets yet, so open to suggestions. Mostly thinking of an Open Jaw flying in/out of Madrid/Barcelona. This is what i have in mind.

Day 1-3 in Madrid, with a day trip to Toledo | 3 Nights
Day 4-7 in Seville, with a day trip to Cordoba | 4 Nights
Day 8-10 in Beach Town (Malaga, Cadiz, any other options) |3 Nights
Day 11-13 Barcelona | 3 Nights

Questions:
1. If we are doing Mezquita in Cordoba and Alcazar in Seville, is it okay to skip Alhambra in Granada?
2 Planning to take an Ave for most part of trip. Will fly between Malaga and Barcelona. Should we rent a car for Andulasia part of our trip (Seville & Malaga)?
3. Need recommendations for third part of the trip (Malaga/Cadiz). What beach town can we do instead, which is conveniently located 2-3 hours from Seville and is medium paced. We are mostly looking forward to beach time and great food scene.
4. Any nice coastal drives that are recommended?
5. We are targeting travel dates as Sep 17 - Oct 2rd or Sep 24 - Oct 9. Is the weather going to be still outrageously hot during end of sep?
6. If we are not planning to attend the Feria de San Miguel (bullfights) from sep 25-29th, should we try to avoid Seville during those days to escape crowds?
