I have a flight booked to Madrid arriving 16 October and departing 23 October.
My original plan was to fly on to North Africa and only spend 2 nights in Madrid before going home. But now, for personal reasons, I will not be going to North Africa and I'm looking for ideas on how best to use the time in Spain (where I have never been).
I'm thinking of adding Barcelona and Toledo (based on the recommendations for s one week visit to Spain on this site).
I would appreciate specific suggestions about cities/towns to visit, travel logistics, etc. I am especially interested in the local food scene, history, and out of the way places and sites.
