Road trip - Barcelona to Madrid

Hey guys. I'm travelling with a few friends from the US to Europe in April this year. We are going to Paris, Rome and Spain (Barcelona and Madrid). This will be our first euro trip so your inputs would be greatly appreciated.

We're flying from Paris to Rome then Rome to Barcelona. Looks like vueiling.com is a great place to get the plane tickets we need.

But from Barcelona to Madrid, we're planning to do a road trip. I heard there are quite a few breathtaking routes/sceneries along the way. Any chance anyone know which routes these are? What would be the ideal time to travel so we can fully enjoy the scenery?

Also, any recommendations on where to rent, places to stay and visit on both cities?

Thanks!

Done this trip back in 2006
Tapas in Barcelona -THE BEST!!!!!

I suggest Barceloba-Sitgate-Valencia-Madrid-Toledo-Madrid-Segovia-Madrid.
Parking in Madrid was most expensive from all our trip $25EU/night. Most hotel don't have parking - have to use public parking
Nimes -Barcelona-Sitgate

Madrid-Toledo


Check Rick Steves web site for train ticket info
Good Luck!
