A tour of Spain including smaller towns avoiding driving.

Jump to last reply

We are blessed to have visited Spain many times, mostly driving. A few trains here and there. But now I was thinking not to rent a car.
I came up with the following itinerary and I am asking advise to see if it is inconvenient or doable within reason.
We shall land in Madrid, after a few days,
train to Caceres, 3.30 hs -3 nights in Caceres
Caceres-Merida-1 hour -2 nights in Merida
Merida-Zafra-1 hour- 2 nights in Zafra
Zafra- Seville- one week in Seville

Seville Jerez 1 hs
Jerez- Cadiz 40 minutes, staying in either place,probably Cadiz, need advice on this,
Coming back, probably Cadiz to Cordoba, 2 days in Cordoba
then Cordoba Madrid, probably AVE a couple of nights or even one in Madrid, Flyhome

I have to check which will be the best way to buy train tickets, may be simply the Tarjeta Dorada, with its 40% discount which seems a good option.
At the end of the day, we will have of course less freedom to drive around, but there is always the possiblity to catch a bus/train from one of the towns we will be in and visiting a nearby city, like from Caceres visiting Trujillo, a place we like.
I always dream of a local excursion let us say from Caceres to Guadalupe, another place I love, like getting along with a group of locals going for a short visit to Guadalupe.
This way a lot of agravations getting in and out to, from cities and towns will be avoided, As I said we have coped with thisdriving' in and driving out many times, it is not the end of the world but
isn't a simple taxi drive from the station to the hotel a great feelling? No parking problem.
Any advice will be very welcome.
