Need help in deciding if I should travel by train or use a rental car between Malaga, Ronda, and Granada. We are planning to stay two nights in Malaga, one night in Ronda, and two nights in Granada in mid September, I will be heading to Seville from there. Originally, I wanted to rent a car for my entire trip but changed my mind after I read about the parking problem in Granada and Seville. I have the option of renting a car in Malaga and return in Granada as soon as I get there, it seems like parking for one night in Ronda is not that bad. I also know that there are direct trains between Malaga/Ronda, and Ronda/Granada.
My questions are:
1- how are the roads between these cities and how long will it take to drive?
2- will I be missing much, in terms of scenery and villages in between, if I take the train?
3- I think there is only one train from Malaga to Ronda in the morning. What about the bus schedules, do the busses run more frequently? Any ides where I can get the schedules?
Thanks in advance for the help.
