You are in Sevilla while the May Crosses festival goes on in Cordoba 40 mins away with the high speed AVE Train. Perhaps make it an extra day down here for this? An opportunity to go under the skin of things and experience the food, wine, music, dance and fiesta spirit:

"In spite of the religious origins of this festival, don't expect anything short of the traditional Spanish fiesta when you visit Córdoba at this time of year. Each Catholic brotherhood or neighbourhood association sets up a bar next to its cross to serve drinks (try the fino sherry) and tapas (local speciality, salmorejo, is a delicious, creamier version of gazpacho) to the partygoers - and let's not forget the music. In addition to the Sevillanas played during the day, with many local women dancing in their gypsy dresses, there are live performances by rock bands at night, which is also one of the best times to take a walk round the city, view the crosses lit up and soak up in the festive atmosphere." http://www.andalucia.com/festival/maycrosses.htm

You think i should travel all with bus and trains instead? cheers>

well unless you can avoid steep drop-off fees yes - even then for the places you are going cars are rather useless and the train system - forget buses except perhaps from Milan's airport to Switzerland. Sit back and watch the scenery not have your eyes peeled to a sinuously twisting highway in much of this Alpine terrain.
