    Hi, welcome. Sounds like a great trip. Some of my fellow forum readers may surprise me here, but I think you’ll get better recommendations and advice for these specific questions on a site like TripAdvisor which tend to focus more on the destination and not the journey to get there.

    I agree with rickyw. You are more likely to get the type of advice you seek on TripAdvisor and/or websites operated by Rick Steves and the like that provide suggested itineraries. Having said that, I spent a few weeks in Spain last summer. I cannot recommend Seville, Granada and Toledo enough. Whenever possible I took the train. It is cheap, comfortable and often provides some great views of the countryside. Enjoy. P.S. I found the Dali Museum in Figueres worth a day trip from Barcelona.

    Will chime in as someone who has visited Spain on numerous occasions :).

    If you don’t plan on going back to Spain in the immediate future you should probably plan to spend a little less time in Barcelona (2 or 3 nights would be more than enough imo). I would highly recommend you to rent a car as it really gives you a lot of flexibility in terms of where you want to go and when you want to do it, but Spain also has a solid train network so that’s an alternative should you not want to drive.

    Like [USER=3327]@Steve from LA[/USER] mentioned Seville, Granada and Toledo are all worth the visit, but Toledo is a bit far away from the big attractions in Andalusia and Barcelona itself. Nevertheless it should be doable if you take one day from your four planned in BCN. Additionally a day trip from Seville to Cordoba (including visits to the Mosque and Alcazar) would be a nice complement to the Arabic architecture found in Granada. The Costa del Sol region is probably your best bet for some beach/night life. Malaga is nice enough to visit and wander around for a while, whereas Marbella is more glamorous and has a more vibrant night scene (with Puerto Banús being the epicenter of parties). You could make a stop in Valencia on your way to or from Andalusia to visit the City of Arts and Sciences as well as the Ciutat Vella (the Old City, it’s similar in some ways to Barcelona’s, but has the charm of a smaller and less congested city).

    Just a quick addition to my previous message: Since you are visiting in April you might want to keep an eye on the processions taking place. They carry these massive religious figures and antiques around the surroundings of churches, seems like a pretty interesting and unique experience. Never been to one myself, but I’ve heard the ones in Seville are the largest in terms of how many there are and how crowded they are.

    P.S. Even though they dress similar, they are in no way related to the KKK 😉
