5 days in Granada - Seville?

Jump to last reply

I forgot to tag "SPAIN" in my original post -- sorry for any duplication!

I am planning a surprise trip to Granada for my DH's birthday -- the plan is to fly from Philadelphia to Seville late March 2014 as that seems to be the best route for us. We can also fly to Valencia or Madrid and connect to Granada from there, but Seville is probably our best option.

I believe we will fly from the USA on a Wednesday night and return the following Monday -- I could extend the trip to Tuesday.

Question(s):

Should we travel directly to Granada from Seville and start out trip in Granada and circle back to Seville for the trip home?

How many days should we devote to Granada? Based on Anthony Bourdaine's Granada trip (the reason DH wants to visit Granada) we definitely want to see the Alhambra (day and night), Cathedral, explore the old city area, enjoy some tapas.

I'd like to spend a few days in Seville as well. Train to Seville? How much time should we spend there to get a good flavor of all it has to offer?

Or......should we just stick to Granada and spend the entire 5 days there? Is 5 days (including air travel) enough time to see both towns?

I know it's just a short trip and don't want to spend a lot of time traveling from one town to the next, so any suggestions on itinerary are greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance!
