The Train In Spain And Maybe Take A Plane?

Jump to last reply

So I've read through 2,811 posts on Spain (May 2015 trip) and still have questions. I have come up with two options (so far):

OPTION UNO:
Barcelona 6 nights
Train to Madrid for 3
Rent Car
Toledo for 3
Cordoba for 2
Seville for 3 (drop car)
Train to Granada for 1 or 2 nights
Then a PIA to try and get home

OPTION DOS
Barcelona 6 nights
Fly to Granada for 1 or 2 nights
Train to Seville for 3
Rent Car
Drive to Cordoba 2
Drive to Toledo 3
Drive to Madrid 3
Fly home

Obviously, Granada and the Alhambra make for a much more difficult itinerary, but I doubt if I will ever get near this area again, so I guess it is worth the schlep, unless you can talk me out of it (it would make the trip easier, that's for sure)

Would you recommend Option 1 or 2, or if you have a better plan, I am all ears (well, I guess on Fodor's it would be "all eyes"). It would be easier if the train went to all the towns from Madrid to Seville, but it looks like you have to backtrack to Madrid from Toledo, so that's why I decided on the car option.

Gracias!
