4 of us are planning to holiday in Andalucia in October for 7 nights. Our plans are to fly into Madrid and then use the train to travel to Sevilla. So I have a few questions if people would be kind to respond to please. Firstly how do we get from Madrid Airport to pick up the train for Sevilla? Also what is the best train to get to Sevilla. I have looked at the Renfe website but that just confuses me! There seems to be AVE trains? and then some other middle distance trains. I understand we cannot get the tickets until about 60 days in advance - is this the case? Any advice on how best to travel to Sevilla by train would be helpful. Secondly should we spend all our time in Sevilla or should we also try and visit elsewhere? Cordoba, Granada Toledo have all been praised on TA. Should we do these as day trips from Sevilla or should we actually stay there for a night? We are new travellers to Spain so are excited about coming in October but are also happy to accept any advice on our travel plans for Sevilla and surrounding areas.
