Itinerary 7 days with 10 year old son in Spain

Hello. I am taking my 10 year old son to Spain mid May and would love some feedback on our itinerary with suggestions of what to do with a boy. This is what I have planned:

Overnight flight to Madrid

Day 1-3 Madrid. Airtrip hotel. Want to take it easy the first day. Second day-thinking of the Prado. the football stadium, perhaps a city tour on the electric scooter. Plan on a day trip to Segovia to see the castle. Not sure if we should do an organized tour to Seville and Avila or go on our own. I would like the ease of a planned trip but don't' want it to be boring for my son.

High speed train to Seville

Day 4-5 Seville. Staying at Hotel Amadeus

See the Alcazar. Go to a Flamenco show.

Day 6 public transportation to Rhonda. See the bull rink museum. Sleep in Rhonda at Hotel San Gabriel

Day 7 ?? perhaps the caves outside of Rhonda. Open to any suggestions. Will take public transportation to Marbella where we are staying our last night and flying home the next morning.

I would appreciate any suggestions that you think a boy would love. Thank you!!

For train travel:


For day trips, read the top questions in the Madrid forum. You can easily do day trips to Segovia and Avila on your own.

In Seville see the flamenco show at Los Gallos. They have an early show where you can bring your son to.

You can take the bus from Seville to Ronda. From Ronda I would go directly to Marbella by bus.

Have a good trip!
