To avoid confusion, I started a new topic. The difference between this and my last post are:
I bought plane tickets to Granada, leaving from Madrid.
I subtracted 2 nights from Madrid, I added a night to Seville (4 nights in Seville instead of 3) and one night to Toledo.
I have not made any other reservations. So I could still change my mind. I used to assume big cities should deserve the most of my time.
