With apologies for such a detailed itinerary and a long post we are asking to please critique our plans to visit Spain from US. Any comments/recommendations will be greatly appreciated.
Except for air travel, none of the dates are finalized and places to visit/ stay overnight as well as duration could be changed.
As independent travelers we like to see touristy sights, museums, castles, country sites as well as off-beat places and interact with locals.
Also, if there are special events in some towns, perhaps we should change the order. Planning on getting rental car in Madrid, parking rental in Grenada and Seville for duration of the stay there. Driving around should not be a problem as we are used to small European streets and mountains (originally from Europe). Please critique as much as possible and make suggestion for changes and hotels – preferable smaller boutique type.
In Granada, thinking of staying in El Numero 8.
We are on moderate budget and looking forward to our trip October 8 thru October 25.
Thank you in advance for everyone’s advice.
