I am travelling to Madrid leaving Los Angeles on 11/12 and arriving in Madrid on 11/13 in the afternoon, I am departing Madrid on 11/21. I will be spending 11/13 - 11/16 in Madrid with friends for my Birthday then I am heading to Toledo for two nights on & 11/16-11/18. After that I need Help. I Really want to see the Alhambra, but I am not sure if that will work. I can either head to Seville by fast train from Madrid on 11/18 and stay in Seville from 11/18-11/21-taking a day trip to Granada all day on 11/20 or I can head back to Madrid from 11/18-11/21 and do day trips to Segovia and Cuenca. My question is, should I just stick to the areas around Madrid and explore there? or is Seville and the Alhambra worth traveling to for a few days? I feel like I may be being too ambitious trying to squeeze in Seville and the Alhambra and maybe there is enough for me to see in Madrid with day trips.
