Need Itinerary Help Please - Lisbon to Seville (and Andalucia)

Jump to last reply

I know there is a lot of jumping around, which we usually don't like to do, but ... I think these are the best itineraries I can come up with. Which itinerary do you think would be best? I welcome all suggestions.

We are locked into the flight to Lisbon and home from Malaga. We want to spent time in Andalucia, driving around and staying in a few paradores, although they are so expensive that we only want to spent 1 night at each. We are 4 people, so will need 2 rooms everywhere. A family with 2 well-traveled teenage boys.

The difference in these 3 itineraries is Day 2 through 7, how we get from Lisbon to Seville. Once in Seville, the itineraries are identical.

Option 1:
Transportation from Lisbon to Seville = $1300 = $800 (4 people x $200) for flights Lisbon-Barcelona and then Barcelona-Seville PLUS $500 for rental car Seville-Malaga

Advantage = cheapest, get to see Barcelona (seen it before), minimum driving
Disadvantage = moving around a lot, maximum 3 nights in one place

Day 1 - fly into Lisbon
Day 2, 3 - Lisbon
Day 4 - fly from Lisbon to Barcelona - 2 hour flight
Day 5, 6 - Barcelona
Day 7 - fly from Barcelona to Seville - 2 hour flight
Day 8, 9 - Seville
Day 10 - drive Seville to Cordoba - 1 1/2 hour
Day 11 - drive Cordoba to Ubeda - 1 1/2 hour - stay in parador
Day 12 - drive Ubeda to Jean - 1 hour - stay in parador
Day 13 - drive Jean to Granada - 2 hours - stay in parador
Day 14 - drive Granada to Rhonda - 2 hours
Day 15,16 - Ronda
Day 17 - drive Ronda to Malaga - 1 1/2 hour
Day 18 - fly out of Malaga (early monring flight)


Option 2:
Transportation from Lisbon to Seville = $2000 = $2000 for rental car Lisbon-Malaga (includes $800 cross-border dropoff charge)

Advantage = easiest transportation driving door-to-door, get to see Tavira
Disadvantage = have to drive everywhere, have to park car while in Seville, expensive

Day 1 - fly into Lisbon
Day 2, 3, 4, 5 - Lisbon
Day 6 - drive Lisbon to Tavira - 3 hours
Day 7 - drive Tavira to Seville - 2 hours
Day 8, 9 - Seville
Day 10 - drive Seville to Cordoba - 1 1/2 hour
Day 11 - drive Cordoba to Ubeda - 1 1/2 hour - stay in parador
Day 12 - drive Ubeda to Jean - 1 hour - stay in parador
Day 13 - drive Jean to Granada - 2 hours - stay in parador
Day 14 - drive Granada to Rhonda - 2 hours
Day 15,16 - Ronda
Day 17 - drive Ronda to Malaga - 1 1/2 hour
Day 18 - fly out of Malaga (early monring flight)


Option 3:
Transportation from Lisbon to Seville = $2700 = $2200 (4 people x $550) for direct flight Lisbon-Seville plus $500 for rental car Seville-Malaga

Advantage = this is the actual route we want, least moving around, minimum driving
Disadvantage = very expensive

We could do this with an indirect flight from Lisbon to Seville, going through Barcelona, but it would take all day so if we have to go through Barcelona I'd rather stay there a few days (see Option 1).

Day 1 - fly into Lisbon
Day 2, 3, 4, 5 - Lisbon
Day 6 - fly direct Lisbon to Seville
Day 7, 8, 9 - Seville
Day 10 - drive Seville to Cordoba - 1 1/2 hour
Day 11 - drive Cordoba to Ubeda - 1 1/2 hour - stay in parador
Day 12 - drive Ubeda to Jean - 1 hour - stay in parador
Day 13 - drive Jean to Granada - 2 hours - stay in parador
Day 14 - drive Granada to Rhonda - 2 hours
Day 15,16 - Ronda
Day 17 - drive Ronda to Malaga - 1 1/2 hour
Day 18 - fly out of Malaga (early monring flight)

Option 4 - Don't really want to do this as it would be a really long travel day or two.
Same as Option 3, except:
Train Lisbon - Faro
Bus Faro - Seville
