Short trip from Seville to Granada. Need help!!

Jump to last reply

Hello folks. We are a couple in late twenties and are travelling to Spain for 9 days in October this year. We are planning to visit Andalucia region (5 days) and Barcelona (4 days).

We will be reaching Seville at around 1 PM on 2nd October and have a train from Seville to Barcelona on 7th Oct morning so we roughly have 4.5 days and 5 nights. After much thinking we have decided to spend most of our time in Seville and only visit Granada for a short while mainly to visit the Alhambra (would keep Cordoba, Ronda etc. for the next time).

We plan to visit the Alhambra on 5th Oct afternoon (2-8 PM) session. Thereafter we will be staying the night in Granada and take a morning bus/train to Seville on 6th Oct.

So here is the question - One option is to leave from Seville at around 5 PM on 4th Oct to reach Granada by nighttime. This way we get two nights and one full day in Granada but we lose precious evening time of 4th Oct in travelling. Second option is to take an early morning bus/train from Seville on 5th itself and reach Granada by 11-12, in time for 2 PM entry to Alhambra. This way we get an extra evening in Seville but things perhaps get a bit rushed up in Granada. We will still be staying the night there so can visit some of the other attractions in addition to Alhambra.

Please suggest which options seems more logical and practical. We are personally tilting towards the second option but would like to get some informed opinion from the experts before finalizing.

Cheers and thanks in advance!!
