Spring Spain Itinerary

Jump to last reply

Hi - Looking for some advice on our spring itinerary to Spain.

My husband and I were looking all over Spain and Portugal for a trip the last week in April 2017 (some flexibility but our anniversary so an easy choice and seems to be in between festivals - let me know if I'm wrong) and we have decided (for the most part) on Andalucía/Madrid.

It looks like we'll have 10 nights for our trip. We're planning on flying into Madrid (would prefer direct flights) and then immediately taking the train to Seville. (Does it make more sense to not take a direct flight and fly into Seville?)

Here's what we're thinking...

Seville - 4 nights, day trip to Cordoba
Granada - 2 nights
Madrid - 4 nights, day trip to Toledo

About Us:
1. We like both big cities as well as smaller towns.
2. We are really interested in a football game and would change our itinerary to accommodate (looks like possible for spring, all events are TBD/where should we do this?)
3. We're not big museum people but do enjoy architecture/historic buildings (for example one place that interested us in Madrid was the Royal Palace).
4. We love the coast/beach. I know it won't be swimming weather in April/May but could we fit in a coastal town? Leave out Granada (or even Madrid?) Where to? We would enjoy walking around/any outdoor activities. (For example, we were in Ireland in April and loved the beaches and sea kayaking as well as bike riding along the coast).
5. We'd be interested in visiting a Vineyard. Any suggestions on where to do this?

Appreciate any advice. There are so many options but I know we'll have a great time pretty much whatever we do. Thanks in advance!
