My husband and I will be in Spain from Dec 24 through Jan 16 and need help setting up an the itinerary.
Dec 24 through the 29 we'll be in Madrid. After that, we were thinking of visiting Andalucia (Sevilla, Cordoba, Granada, side trip to Ronda and Arcos?). We will also like to visit Toledo and Segovia; we might be able to visit one of the two during our stay in Madrid (family commitments from 24 - 29) but likely the other one will have to be after the 29th.
Part of the difficulty is planning around the holidays (12/25, 1/1, 1/6) and trying to decide which way to head first and how much time to a lot for each city/area.
We are thinking of using the trains with an occasional car rental when it would make more sense.
If time allows, we could also visit Cuenca (and maybe Valencia?) or Avila and Salamanca? If Avila and Salamance would it make better sense to visit these after Segovia? Should we have a car then?
Any suggestions and help putting some sort of plan together would be very helpful!
Note: I have been to all theses places but my husband has only been to Madrid (El Escorial), and Barcelona.
I am also posting this on the forum of other cities.
