Spain with road trip.. Please Suggest!

Hi,

Below is my itinerary
Barcelona 3 nights
Seville 3 nights
ibiza 3 nights

When in Seville i plan to do a road trip to ronda.

Could anyone suggest if i should stay in Seville 3 night including 1 day road trip to ronda or do 2 days seville & do a road trip to Granada and than fly to ibiza.

I am also confused if i should go Barcelona or Madrid.

Please help with my above itinerary.

Thanks

Personally, I'd go with Madrid.

What time of year are you going? Southern Spain is incredibly hot in the summer and much of your time will be spent in the hotel pool. We have been to Andalusia twice and loved it - but in April when the weather is hot but not sweltering: once for 10 day and once for 12.

A am not a fan of Madrid (which can also be VERY hot) so I would stick to Barcelona and Ibiza if you want party central.

Aside from the weather issue, I'd probably do the road trip to Granada only if I had the daylight hours to get there (to spent enough time in between) and had the AM and bit of PM hours next day to visit the Alhambra. And could fly out of Granada in the evening.

Otherwise, the day trip to Ronda is also very nice with lots to see in between Sevilla and Ronda.
If you don't want to backtrack from Ronda to Sevilla, you could check if there are not too early flights from Málaga to Ibiza. So you could spend the afternoon and night in Ronda.

Thank you for the suggestions.
I am looking to travel in month of June.

So do you mean i should do a road trip from Seville to malaga & stop over a night at ronda?

Is 4 day good for above?

Well, I did not necessarily suggest you should do Sevilla-Ronda-Málaga.

But in case you have no flights from Granada to Ibiza, it could be an option to check if you can fly to Ibiza from Málaga (and save the drive back to Sevilla). IF you want that.

Given that you could do either Cordoba or Malaga easily from Seville by train I have no idea why you want to drive to Ronda, which is after all just a bridge and a gorge. For some reason Americans like looking into this hole in the ground or wandering down. It's a bridge, get over it!

Use the trains, this is how civilised people get around most of the time, they are clean, comfortable and efficient why would you use such an old fashioned thing as a car if you didn't have to?

Seriously though both Cordoba and Malaga are amazing, with some fine architecture, art, museums

I have read reviews that the drive from seville to malaga is scenice one. with white town to explore.

I am not very interested in museums art n all. Just a look around is fine.

It said these placed are very authentic Spanish and must see!

@Cowboy 1968.

the preferable with less hours flights is from malaga;
so i guess i would have to do the route seville-ronda-malaga.

Seville stay over for 2 days. Travel ronda 1 night stay
and next following day leave from malaga to ibiza.
