Here's another typical question... how should I split my time between Madrid and Barcelona?
I'm gonna have 17 days total... which is 14 in reality (2 days to get there... and 1 day to come back home... I'm from Canada), which is probably 13 days really because of the train ride between Madrid and Barcelona.
So, 13 full days to explore Spain... but I'm on a short notice as I want to leave May 20 (yeah, in a couple of weeks only) and I have nothing booked.
I was planning to fly in Madrid and out of Barcelona. I don't know why exactly, but I prefer to visit Madrid first then Barcelona... is the other way around a better idea?
Back to my main question, with 13 days, how would you split my time between those two cities.
I'm not into museums that much (only the "must sees"), I like to walk around, see beautiful architecture, learn about history...
I will probably do a day trip from both cities (or maybe two from both cities if worth it).
Right now, I'm thinking Madrid 5, Barcelona 8... or Madrid 6, Barcelona 7...
What do you think?
Is it too much or about right?
Any advices are appreciated!
