Hi all, I'm working on finalizing my itinerary and right now I have it planned so that we will have (almost) 3 full days in Granada (our flight from Barcelona arrives at 8:50am on a Saturday and we'd leave early Tuesday morning)? Later in the trip, we will be getting into Sevilla around 10am on a Friday morning and leaving Sunday morning. Would you recommend shifting the time around so that we spend more time in Sevilla so as to have almost 3 full days in Sevilla, and almost 2 full days in Granada instead? I have a feeling that the Alhambra will be the highlight of my trip; I'm also looking forward to exploring the Albaicin (will the jasmine be in bloom in May? if so, even better!) and seeing the Alhambra from the San Nicolas viewpoint. We'd also like to experience a Turkish bath. In Sevilla, we want to see the Alcazar, the cathedral, and experience a flamenco show. And in both cities we just want to take some time to wander around the neighborhoods. Anyone have any thoughts on which town is better for "lingering" - Sevilla or Granada? (I realize this is a very subjective question but appreciate all thoughts :) ).
I could also shift it around so that we leave Sevilla mid to late afternoon on Sunday, and then we'd be able to keep our three days in Granada and have 2.5 in Sevilla, but then we'd only have one evening in Madrid before our flight leaves at 11:30am the following day. (My fiancee is not very into art so we will likely skip the museums and instead just enjoy a nice dinner and maybe an early evening self-guided walking tour of some sorts; I am tempted by this idea because we tend to enjoy the smaller cities more than the large ones, so I think we will like Sevilla and Granada more than Madrid).
Thanks in advance for your help!
