My girl friends and I are going to be in Spain for 10 days in July and looking for advice on itinerary! I fly in and out of Barcelona and one of my friends leaves out of Majorca back to the US after the first 5 days, so that’s the only other set location we have. We will want to spend at least two or three days in Majorca before she leaves.
For the first two or three days - looking for advice on where to go before Majorca. We have discussed Madrid, Ibiza, Seville, (or open to other!). Also discussed just spending the full five days in Majorca. (The only non option for the first few days is Barcelona - my friend has been numerous times and has no interest seeing it again, so I plan to do Barcelona at the end of my trip with my other friend before flying home. Also this location for the first few days needs to have a direct flight or easy way to get to Majorca).
Also looking for advice for what my other friend and I should do for two to three days after Majorca when the other friend leaves.
I plan to spend the last day or two of the trip in Barcelona - I have been before and have seen the Gaudí sites and all that but would like to see a more fun view of the city before flying home.
I have only been to Barcelona before so tempted to see as much as possible but don’t want to over extend ourselves. We are 31, and enjoy tapas, good wine, good atmosphere and beautiful views. We will want to enjoy the beach, see some cute shops, do some sight seeing although not overly interested in seeing museums or churches necessarily. We will want to go out at night but nothing crazy - not interested in long lines, cover charges, over priced drinks, etc. we would love to do a (not super crowded) boat tour in Majorca (or somewhere else) to get some sun and see the sights!
For these additional cities, we want to be in a central location for activities and restaurants (don’t want to spend a ton of time traveling within the city given timing). Also we don’t want to rent a car anywhere - my friends live in New York City and abroad and haven’t driven in many years and I am not interested in driving in a foreign country.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!
