I am planning my first trip to Spain. We are planning on being there for a week. Maybe a couple days in madrid and then go down to seville, granada, cordoba, etc. (How long is the trip from madrid to seville? via car? rail?)
We aren't that into museums, however would love to see the Madrid's site and architecture, etc. We are also foodies, and would love recs on good restaurants (preferably vegetarian friendly).
One of my largest questions is if we need a car - in madrid and the south? I know there are trains that go down there, but once we are there will we be lost without a car? Also, going between seville, granada, etc - how easy is it via rail vs. car?
Lastly, what places would you reccommend in the south? I know Seville is on our list, but what about the other towns/cities?
Any answers would help alot!! Please advise and thanks in advance.
