What is the best way to get from Granada to Valencia without a car?

We are in the early stages of planning our first trip to Spain, and I am having a little difficulty with the train schedules. We gave up driving in Europe years ago and have been using trains and sometimes buses to get from place to place. I can't seem to find a "reasonable" train from Granada to Valencia. Is this doable or do we need to consider another form of transporation?

If you are going to be in Andalucia, you might turn that part around a bit and see if you can fly out of Sevilla to Valencia. As you can fly to Granada from several places.. that might work.

Otherwise the train is long. But at least from Valencia to Granada there is a sleeper coach.

Getting from Andalucia to Valencia on public transportation is a bit of suffering in time.. so doing your trip in an order that helps eliminate that part by land would be a good idea if you can.

Madrid and Barcelona, Alicante/Murcia all are good to get to VLC by train.

Sevilla good by plane.

Barcelona/Madrid to Granada by plane.
Mad-Granada also by train.
Sevilla to Granada by train or bus.

Good luck

"There is bus service from Valencia to Granada. See the schedule at www.alsa.es

But I'd follow lin's advice and try to turn your itinerary around, as she suggests.

As you can see, the fastest trip is almost 9 hours...
