travel to southern Spain in December

Hi Hoda, The last week of December and first week of January can be a little chilly in certain areas of Spain. Certainly if you visit Madrid it will be cold. The southern portion of Spain and the Mediterranean coast will be milder. As far as the order in which you visit the cities I would recommend flying into Madrid and out of Madrid. You'll have more flight options, less connections, and cheaper flights this way. I would make Madrid your home base for a least 3 to 4 days while you visit Segovia and Toledo both of which can easily been done in a day via a train. I would then take the train down to Seville. This is where you will have to decide how badly you want to see Portugal because there are no trains from southern Spain to Portugal so you either have to take a bus or rent a car. If you're not comfortable driving in Spain than I would skip Portugal. You can take a day trip to Jerez de la frontera and visit some wineries. You can take another day trip from Seville out to Italica via a bus to visit Roman ruins. Take the train north and spend a day or two in Cordoba. Depending on how much time you have left you can either go back to Madrid for you flight home or take the train down to Granada for a few day there visiting the Alhambra. This trip would be the easiest avoiding the hassle of renting a car. The trains in Spain are great and nothing beats a glass of rioja wine while watching the countryside roll by. Hope this helps!
