We're planning a trip to Spain for the week before Easter for 8 days. My husband and I have been to Andalusia, Barcelona, and Bilbao/San Sebastian. We're traveling with our kids (7 and 9) this time and thought we'd focus on Madrid and Castile Leon. Our kids can handle some museums but will probably be more into castles. We'd also like to see some Jewish historical sites and some of the Semana Santa events. We also don't want to move hotels every night. Below is our planned itinerary so far. Any advice on whether we're allotting too much or too little time in any place or whether we're missing any towns we should see would be appreciated. Also, we haven't yet looked into staying in a castle, but if we could work that in, that would be a plus.
Arrive Saturday, stay Saturday night through Wednesday night at Artrip hotel in Madrid, see Madrid for 2 days, do day trips from Madrid to Segovia, Avila and/or Salamanca
Train to Cordoba from Madrid. Stay in Cordoba Thursday and Friday nights (need suggestions for hotels with quad rooms or apartments)
Train from Cordoba back to Madrid, train to Toledo. Stay in Toledo Friday and Saturday nights at Apartamentos Cueva de Hercules III.
