Paris --> Madrid for two young adult women

Jump to last reply

Hi! My 20 year-old sister and I (I'm 23) are planning a nine day trip through France and Spain this July. We're thinking of flying into Paris and then making our way via train through France and Spain to Madrid. From Madrid, we'd take the train to Seville where we're meeting friends and family that live there. I was thinking we could spend the first few nights in Paris, the last few nights in Madrid, and then break up the the rest of the trip (we're probably talking about 4 or 5 nights in the middle) by stopping in various places that correspond with the typical train route from Paris to Madrid. While we've traveled in Europe before, this will be our first time in Paris, and my sister's first time in Madrid. We were recently in Barcelona, so in the interest of seeing some new places, it's not a top destination for this upcoming trip.
I'd love any advice on train tickets or travel routes, and/or suggestions on places to stop along the way down to Madrid! We're both pretty adventurous and love getting off the beaten path, but are also always down for some great food, fun night life, museums, etc.
Thanks so much in advance for the help!
