Spain
 
Does this itinerary seem doable?
Two weeks in Spain. Proposed itinerary:
Arrive in Barcelona, spend 4 nights,
fly to Granada spend 2 nights, take train? bus? to Malaga
from Malaga, visit Tangiers return to Malaga 2 nights
Seville 3 nights
Madrid 3 nights return to Barcelona for flight home

Thanks!

It's a little fast paced especially with just 3 nights for Madrid and Malaga. If you really want to visit Madrid, Barcelona and Andalucia during a 14 day trip then I'd probably skip Malaga (and definately tangiers) and do 4 nights each in Madrid, Sevilla and Barcelona and 2 nights in Granada. Visit cordoba as a daytrip en route from Sevillla to Madrid and visit Toledo as a daytrip from Madrid. Malaga is a wonderful city but 3 nights each for Sevilla and Madrid is not enough IMHO.

Very doable. Bus from Granada to Málaga in 1h 30 mins - 1h 45 mins every hour on the hour all day. Alsa.es

Fine introduction info about

Thanks for the advice! I will pass it by our travelling companions.

It is possible, but I agree with Cathy M.
( I like Malaga , but there is so much to do in Madrid..especially since you have to return to
Barcelona. - would trade the time.)

We did 4 nights Barcelona, 3 nights Granada, 4 nights Sevilla and 3 nights Madrid. If I had it to do over again I would cut Granada down to 2 days and add another day in Madrid to have the time to day trip to Toledo. But if Malaga and Tangiers are important to you, you can make it work. Also check to see if it is possible to fly into Barcelona and out of Madrid instead of having to return to Barcelona -- most airlines will allow an open jaw like that for the same price.

Are you sure you want to go to Tangiers. A port city, not charming, crime and hustlers. Why not Rabat, Casablanca or Marrakech?
