We are heading to Spain next year and I am trying to find the best way to hit some of our top stops. We're looking at 12 to 13 days.
Our hope is to spend most of the trip in Adalusia and flying to Barcelona for a few days to finish out the trip.
I would love to have people who have been to Spain's advice of best order of towns as well as any recommendations of off the beaten path recommendations. I.e. fun activities or places that you stumbled upon.
Fly into Malaga (Tuesday), a couple days to relax on the beach (how much time do you recommend here? Looking at Wed/Thurs)
Friday head over to Granada
Sunday morning head over to Ronda via train
Monday morning bus to Seville
Mon/Tues-Thurs Seville (w/day trip to Cordoba and/or Jerez)
Thursday night flight to Barcelona
Fri/Sat/Sun Barcelona - fly back either Sun or Mon
We are flexible to where we fly into, out of, and number of days (no more than 13), but things we want to hit the most are the above towns/cities. Honestly, we can take or leave Malaga, but it looked pretty affordable to fly to from the west coast US and we would love to start off with a couple relaxing days on the beach.
Love to hear your thoughts! Esp. regarding the most efficient order of cities to travel to and recommended modes (bus vs. train) in Andulsia and then any advice for relaxing in Barcelona!
