artlover- we got a really great deal on flights from Chicago to Madrid, so we just decided to do it since I've heard travelling on the AVE is so easy. We could go straight to Sevilla the day we arrive, but we thought it might be nice to just have some time to stop and get acclimated.

bpajax- so glad to hear that you liked the hotels, those decisions took me forever to make!

for the flamenco, is that something we should make reservations for ahead of time?

On a totally unrelated note, that I should probably post under a new topic, I have read that some people make a photo copy of their passport, and keep that with them instead of their actual passport. I've never been to Europe, should we do that? Or does the copy stay in the safe, and the passport with me??

Shandirls -- Please write a post describing your honeymoon trip to Andalucia when you get back!

My DW and I are taking a very similar trip in November -- we're staying at the in Sevilla for 4 nights, also at the Hotel Alminar; then we're renting a car and driving through Jerez de Frontera, Arcos de Frontera and Zahara, on our way to Ronda for two nights, staying at the Parador; and then driving on to Granada for 3 nights, staying at Casa Morisca. (WTNow, we are going on side trip by train to Cordoba to see the Mezquita on one of our Sevilla days.)

DW and I have been married 24 years, so the so-called "Italian Bed" (two singles pushed together) isn't as problematic!

For flamenco in Seville, agree with the choice of previous posters about Casa de la Memoria. We were there two weeks ago, and the show was good. You need to buy your tickets a few hours before, to be sure to getting a seat.

We watched flamenco at other places too in Seville. The one we found even better than the one above, was "La Carboneria". It is on C.Levies in the Santa Catalina area. It is free, and has a fabulous atmosphere. You will not regret going there.

And there is "Lo Nuestro" in Triana area, on C.Betis. It is also free, but here only the singers are professional. The dancers are visiting locals, who do a pretty good job. And you may well be persuaded to join in , along with your wife. Would be a lot of fun.

Try all three places, which is what we did !
