Spring Itinerary--Madrid/Andalusia and car question

Jump to last reply

Am working on my two weeks in Spain for May. I know that we will be just scratching the surface but want to get the overview and return in future.
Trip is for my husband and myself. We are active, in good shape and have lots of travel experience. We do like museums but don't want to overload. We love to experience good food, the culture and want to walk wherever we can.
With that said, I am thinking:
4 nights with Madrid (with day trip to either Segovia, Toledo or both)
3 nights Seville
2 nights Cordoba
1 or 2 Granada (The Alhambra seems to be the reason to go. Is it like the palaces in Istanbul?--We went there a few years ago and enjoyed it)
2 or 3 Marbella--Costa del Sol
We would take train from Madrid to Seville and then get a car when leaving Seville to see Cordoba and Granada.
Is it okay to drive to Marbella also? We would return home from Malaga. (Boston)
Should we stay one or two nights in Granada? Would give some flexibility in adding days elsewhere.
