Have you ever dreamed of organizing Spain 15 days itinerary? Don’t worry, I’m here to make things easier for you. Spain is a vast country and each region is very different from the other, to give you a general idea I have selected this itinerary. From the Pyrenees to the Atlantic Ocean, from the Costa Blanca to the Costa Brava.
DAY 1/2 STARTING IN MADRID
Our starting point will be Madrid, you can also leave Barcelona, but connections to Andalusia are not so many. Madrid capital offers much more than a 2-day stay but for a trip like this, we will only sleep 3 nights, visiting Toledo on the same day.
Let’s start with the free tour of Madrid, don’t miss it, to visit the essential points of the city. Lunch break?
DAY 3 TOLEDO
Toledo is one of the most beautiful medieval cities in Europe if you are a fan it is perfect to visit during the day. It is 40 minutes from Madrid by train and you buy a return ticket for € 14. For more info on Toledo, read here or book your free tour!

Begin the descent towards the south, first stop Cordoba, my favorite Spanish city. From Madrid, it is 1h40 by fast train, average ticket price 30 €. Visit the city with the free tour and if you can, take part in a flamenco show. For more info on the city click here!

Sevilla is the next stop, and here we stop 2 days. From Cordoba, I recommend the regional train for 12 €, duration 1h20, and high frequency. Free tour available, if you prefer to visit the city on your own it is very easy. Don’t forget to visit Pl. España, the historic center, and the cathedral.
