I am planning on visiting Madrid first week of June stay couple of days there, and then drive to Barcelona and finally take a cruise from there. I would like to know how many days I need to plan for Madrid/Barcelona and if there are any interesting cities to visit on our way to Barcelona? Should I rent a car and drive to Barcelona or take the train?
Pls keep in mind that I don't like to spend more than half day at a museum. I enjoy architecture and scenery the most.
Any suggestions for an economical/clean hotel for Madrid/Barcelona are appreciated.
I have 7 days to spare b/w Madrid and Barcelona.
