Lyle...I'm still a little confused. First you say you're starting in Barcelona....then you say you're renting in Valencia first. Those two places are quite far apart, and where you'll be will play a major role in suggestions for 5 extra days.
hi norm,hope this clarfies it,we will have had 6 days in valencia,then we have to return to barcelona,then we have 5 free days to wander
I would suggest you take the high speed rail from Barcelona to Madrid, spend a couple of days there, then come back to Barcelona and see the sights there. Day trips from Madrid include Segovia and Toledo, while day trips from Barcelona include Montserrat and even Tarragona. You will need reservations for the high speed AVE Barcelona-Madrid-Barcelona, and for Madrid-Segovia and Madrid-Toledo, so make them as soon as you can get to a RENFE station.
With only 5 days and four nights, that's about all you'll have time for....Sevilla and Granada are too distant to get to easily, and require a couple of days each on their own.
