help with train planning

Hi,

We are a family of four, 2 kids aged 4 and 8 yrs.

We planning a trip in early June.

We are flying into Barcelona and leaving out of Madrid.

The plan is Barcelona-3 days, Valencia - 1 day, Seville- 1 day and Madrid- 3 days.

We are not keen on museums.

Are there trains at frequent timings between these stations?

Esp Valencia- Seville- there seems to only one direct train, all the others have a stopover at Madrid.

Or else, should we do Madrid and go to Seville and come to to Madrid to fly out.

Thanks

Lekha

You could take the direct train Barcelona to Seville perhaps as don;t think you have enough time for Valencia plus Seville. Do one or other.

With only 8 days and 2 children this is really just barely enough for Madrid and Barcelona. I wouldn't try to add any other stops. There will be plenty to keep you busy with these cities.
