alusia in two weeks


we have never been to spain after a few weeks in the UK are planning a 12 day stopover in spain nov-dec 2012. we want to spend time to soak up barcelona but also would like to see madrid seville and granada. this is our planned itinerary and would appreciate any comments from more seasoned travellers. we prefer not to take a coach tour of those area - we have researched a number of them but have mixed reviews.

23.11 - 27.11 barcelona - rent an apartment

28.11 fly barcelona --> madrid (stay 2 days)

30.11 train madrid --> seville (stay overnight)

1.12 coach tour seville - granada - seville (stay overnight in granada)

2.12 granada --> seville - overnight seville

3.12 seville - madrid - overnight madrid

4.12 international flight out of madrid

we are backtracking to seville which seems a waste of time.

does anyone have any suggestions please?

Andalusia presumably :-)

' nov-dec 2012' - ?

28.11 - why flight, when you can take the train, centre to centre in about the same time, with less hassle and as cheap, probably, if purchasing advance discounted train tickets?

'we are backtracking to seville which seems a waste of time' - You seem confident enough to see Barcelona and Madrid without a coach tour, why no confidence by taking a coach tour, if you prefer not to, in Andalucia? Train or bus Seville to Granada.

Train or bus from Granada back to Madrid.

Is Madrid the only international flight exit from Spain?
