Itinerary Help: Granada or Madrid??

Jump to last reply

We will be taking our first trip to Spain in September. First some background about us: we are in our early fifties and enjoy walking everywhere if possible (helps to keep off the pounds after indulging in all the wonderful food!). We haven’t traveled extensively in Europe but have loved our trips to London, Paris, Amsterdam, Rome and the Amalfi Coast. We love architecture, immersing ourselves in the culture, beautiful vistas and as mentioned, great food. We’ll visit one or two museums and/or art galleries and adore old, exquisite churches.

We have 11 days for this trip (not including travel days) and are choosing between the following:

Itinerary A:

Day 1: Fly into Madrid
Day 2-3: Madrid (with possible day trip to Toledo or Segovia)
Day 4-7: Seville (with day trip to Cordoba)
Day 8-11: Barcelona
Day 12: Fly home from Barcelona

Itinerary B:

Day 1: Fly to Seville (daytrip to Cordoba)
Day 2-4: Seville (day trip to Cordoba)
Day 5,6: Granada
Day 7-11: Barcelona
Day 12: Fly home from Barcelona

So essentially, we have to decide if we should visit Granada or Madrid? And how many days for each city? With only 11 days, I know we won’t be able to see everything we’d like in each city, but at least we will get a taste. And from what I’ve read so far, Barcelona is a must but I am open to other possibilities.

Thank you so much for all opinions and any advice you can give us!
