Spain in Nov. - Where to go?

Jump to last reply

I'm thinking of taking a trip to Spain in November with 3 friends. We are all women in our 30's. We like musuems, historical sites, interesting architecture, and old world charm. We like to walk a lot, eat good food, and people watch while soaking up the culture. But, we are also not averse to some good nightlife.

We kinda just decided to go, so we haven't even nailed down the exact time frame, but we'll probably have something like 10 to 14 days actually in the country. We're thinking of flying into Madrid and out of Malaga.

We'd like to spend a couple of days in Madrid with a side tript to Toledo and then head down and do Seville and Granada before ending with a taste of Costa del Sol. Is this feasible? Does anyone have any suggestions on how many days to spend in each and how to get between the cities?

We are a little concerned with the weather (One of them gets cold very easily. The temp in Madrid especially worries us.) which is why we are more concentrating in southern Spain. We are also concerned that we don't have enough time to see what we would like. We would love to go to Barcelona, but kinda feel like we have to pick between that and Madrid(with Toledo) due to time constraints and distance. Even though Madrid will likely be colder, we think it also has more of the old world feel that we are looking for. Do you think that's true? Any help would be appreciated.
