how many days in madrid, if any?


how many days do you think is needed for madrid? I have 8 days total and am thinking of 5 in barcelona and 3 in madrid. I am thinking that doing a one or two more days in madrid with a day trip from madrid might be good too. Any advice?

Do 4 days in each, check out the inside pages for a detailed list of day trips from Barcelona. For trips from Madrid, here is an excellent post from FBV for you - tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g187514-i126-k1017…

I think 2/3 days in Barcelona is ok, the same as Madrid.

If you can afford it, i would spend 1/2 nights in Sevilla. It is among the beautiest cities in Spain, and is completely different from Madrid and Barcelona. Though expensive, it's only 2 and a half hours from Madrid by train. 8 days is quite enough for Barcelona-Madrid-Sevilla, and you will see three different types of Spanish cities.

Granada would be a nice option too, but it is badly connected with Madrid

If not, 1 day trips recommended above are good alternatives too (Segovia better than others)
