Two-week itinerary, Barcelona + Madrid + Andalucia

Jump to last reply

A friend and I are planning a two-week trip to Spain and we're a little bit at a loss as to how to allocate our time. We want to visit Barcelona (with a day trip to Figueres, I'm a Dali fan :)), Madrid (with day trips to Toledo and Segovia), then head south to Andalucia (Seville, Córdoba and Granada). We're both in our late thirties and we're interested in history, culture and art. Not into clubbing and we want to plan our trip without too much 'slack time', but also without hurriedly running around to see the attractions of interest to us.

So far I've come up with the following:
Check-in in Barcelona (early afternoon, after a relatively short flight from Cairo, Egypt) then spend four nights.
Four nights in Madrid (with day trips to Toledo and Segovia, as well as visit El Escorial)
Two nights Seville
One night in Córdoba
Three nights in Granada
Then fly domestic from Granada to Barcelona to catch my afternoon flight to Cairo.

Would really appreciate any insights on this itinerary. The trip will be in the second half of August (bad timing re heat, but we couldn't fit two weeks elsewhere in our busy schedules)
