My 10 year old daughter wants to do a father/daughter trip over her Fall Break from October 8-17th. She is well travelled and able to do a carry-on only bag so I want to introduce her to a trip focused on trains and busses instead of our usual rental car trips,
We have found a nice fare from Denver to Malaga which would arrive at 10:00 p.m. on 10/9. Obviously we would be staying close to the airport that night. Flying into Seville is $500 more and results in a hellishly long return flight.
The next day our trip would begin by heading by train from Malaga to Seville for 2-3 nights. After Seville, possibly Cordoba for 1-2 nights. Then on to Granada for 2-3 nights. Our last night will need to be in Malaga.
I would love to see Ronda, but it appears a bit out of the way on such a short trip. It appears many here prefer Cordoba anyways. We generally like to stay 2-3 nights in each place.
On a trip with a 10 year old, would 2 nights each in Seville, Cordoba and Granada be a good first time visit overview of this region? Would anyone shift nights to other towns? My daughter wants to see old city attractions, archaeological sites, and some natural attractions.
How about Ronda as a daytrip from Seville? This might be easier than making a one night diversion with a 10 year old but require another day in Seville at the expense of extra time in Cordoba.
Thanks in advance for any advice.
