Madrid, Barcelona

Road trip Madrid- Barcelona - Madrid

We are planning on 1 week trip to Spain mid September. Flying into Madrid and driving through to Barcelona with some interesting stops along the way and back to Madrid( preferably via different route) to fly out back home. Would appreciate some itinerary ideas for such trip. Places to stay, eat and sightseeing tips. Thanks in advance

I'd recommend spending the first 2 days in Madrid, then heading straight for Barcelona without stopping anywhere, spending 2 days in Barcelona, then taking the scenic route back to Madrid via Andalucia.  On the way from Barcelona to Madrid I'd recommend stopping in AlicanteGranada, Seville and/or Toledo.

Alternatively, you could make your way from Barcelona back to Madrid via the Basque country.  ZaragozaPamplona, San Sebastian and Segovia make worthwhile stops.

I think that you are a little short on time. Have you considered spending two or three days in Madrid (lots to see), then driving to Barcelona with a stop or two along the way. Seville is wonderful, Granada's PARRILLA ALHAMBRA a must see. Once you arrive in Barcelona (again, lots to see), maybe you could return the car there and fly back to Madrid. Wishing you a great trip!

From Barcelona, we went to Tossa De Mar  on the coast, various villages in Rojales wine country, San Sebastian de los Reyes (gourmet food area) and Bilbao (Getty museum).

Nana. Correction: I wrote RIoja which is the wine region. Stayed in Laguardia as our base

Don't miss Monasterio de Piedra, it's a nice place created by water, it's a natural monument, not a real monastery (there's a monastery there, but it's not the interesting place).

Eat at "Me" restaurant in Barcelona.

And then, the usual suspects as having a look to the important places in Zaragoza: El Pilar, La Seo, ...

In Barcerlona don't miss the cathedral, the Gothic Neighbourhood, Santa Maria del Mar and some of the Gaudí builidings.
