Our Trip to Seville thru Madrid in Oct 2014

My husband and I are returning to Spain for 8 nights in Oct 2014. We have already spent time in Barcelona and Madrid, back in 2009. Now we are planning a trip to Seville for either 5 or 6 nights, arriving via train from Madrid. We are wondering whether we should hop on the train after our very first night in Madrid, so that we have 6 nights in SevilleM, or whether we should stay in Madrid and kick around for 2 nights, before heading down to Seville for only 5 overnights, there. Is there enough to keep us busy for 6 days and nights in Seville? We are into sightseeing, good food, historical sights and outdoor spaces/parks/beaches. Thank you for your advice.

You can visit from Seville, Ronda www.turismoderonda.es by bus www.samar.es

Cadiz www.andalucia.com/cities/cadiz.htm by train www.renfe.com/EN/viajeros./index.html

You could break your journey Madrid to Seville at Cordoba, there is luggage storage at the station.

Outside the train station take a bus or Taxi to the old town and The Mezquita www.catedraldecordoba.es/visita/index.html You will have to pay for two train sectors.

I wonder if you want to or are able to book an air ticket via Madrid to Seville?

The train is most people's choice and Atocha station is well linked with the airport (now renamed Adolfo Suárez Madrid–Barajas Airport or MAD for short) so you could take a taxi for the flat fee of €30 and take the next train? The Spanish rail people are encouraging more travellers by offering discounted tickets if you book in advance but if you want flexibility then turn up and buy the full fare. I have a Seniors card which costs €6 and lasts a year but instantly affords a good discount on a train journey. Useful if over 60.

The idea of a base or apartment in Seville makes a lot of sense. Try to stay somewhere which is convenient for Santa Justa station as the mainline trains will use this.
