Spain Itinerary Feedback

Hi All I'd like to get some feedback on our two week itinerary to Spain and Morocco Thanks much!! My questions are 1) Should we spend night in Toledo or do a day trip from Madrid? Looks like the trains from Toledo - Seville go through Madrid anyways 2) Since we are flying to Morocco from Grenada, what is the best way to see Andalucia and Gibraltar? Is what I've planned a good strategy? Is this too much to do in the time allocated? Day 1 Fly in to Madrid early; Madrid | Spend night in Madrid Day 2 Madrid | Spend night in Madrid Day 3 Toledo | Spend night in either Madrid or Toledo Day 4 Train to Seville via Cordoba | Spend night in Seville Day 5 Seville | Spend night in Seville Day 6 Train to Arcos; Get car; Drive to Andalucia Towns | Spend night in an Andalucia town Day 7 Drive via Gibraltar to Grenada |Spend night in Grenada Day 8 Grenada | Spend night in Grenada Day 9 Fly to Morocco (destination TBD) | Spend night in Morocco Day 10 Morocco (destination TBD) | Spend night in Morocco Day 11 Morocco (destination TBD) | Spend night in Morocco Day 12 Morocco; Fly to Barcelona | Spend night in Barcelona Day 13 Barcelona | Spend night in Barcelona Day 14 Barcelona; Evening Train to Madrid | Spend night near Madrid Airport

I would recommend you spend at least one night in Toledo...You can get there and back to Madrid in 1/2 hour, but to enjoy the city, one night will be best. Posada De Manollo is a great facility, right near the cathederal, has a good breakfast as well, overlooking the cathederal. To get from Toledo to Seville via train you will return to Madrid 2 1/2 hour to Seville from Madrid

It's pretty packed. You're staying the minimum in each city. But I guess it's doable. Generally I'd suggest staying overnight in Toledo but with such a whirlwind trip you might enjoy the extra night in one hotel. It'd also be better if you could fly open-jaw into Madrid and out of Barcelona. That'd save you a train ride and night on the go. Others will have to comment on the driving part.
