What to do in spain
We're thinking, really planning, of a trip to Spain and Morocco in June. Need some help planning.→
About 12-13 days including all traveling.
The thought was first to fly to Barcelona, then make it to Seville for a
couple of days, then to Marrakech for a few days.
But I know this is counter- what everyone says, but I'm wondering if Barcelona is the right city for us. We're not particularly interested in architecture or museums. I like to go to historical places. What really seems to interest me is more like Seville, Granada, Cordoba (Andalusia).
Does it make more sense, then, to fly to Madrid (which is too huge and museum-ish on its own for me) and stay in Seville (I'm looking at air B'n B's) and take day trips to those other towns in Andalusia and skip Barcelona?
Does anybody know if day trips from Seville to those places makes sense?
I'm too scared for us to rent a car and try to go from town to town by ourselves, staying in a different place every night - seems too confusing to book a nice friendly Air B'nB in e.g. Seville and come back to it every evening.
Would trains work as transportation, coming back to the same cozy Air B 'n
B in Seville each night?
Is it crazy to go to Spain and skip Barcelona? There is obviously limited
time here because we want to fly from Spain to Marrakech and spend a few
days there as well.
If it matters we're a couple, 68 and 63 years old, and our college-aged son, 21 years old, who studies Spanish seriously - another reason to go to more Spanish-speaking, less Catalonian places, maybe?
Any advice appreciated.
