A friend of mine is a “beginner” traveller. They have time this fall but she was overwhelmed with the thought of planning and just kept putting it off. I am very pressed for time with my own upcoming trip and another soon thereafter. I suggested Andalusia, because my husband and I loved it, and I’d have a rough itinerary for her, including hotels. The cities are Madrid, Sevilla, Cordoba and Granada. She wants to use all public transportation.
- I’ve looked at open jaw. It’s not an option. They will use Madrid round trip. 2.My husband and I drove between Sevilla and Granada. At that time they were working on a train line for Granada to Madrid/Córdoba. What is the most efficient route between the above cities using trains and/or buses? I have played with Rome2Rio and nothing stood out to me for transportation to and from Granada. Looks like all routes to/from Granada go thru Cordoba? 3.I will tell her to book the Sevilla alcazar and Alhambra in advance. Is there anything else that . should be prebooked? For us, we easily obtained Mezquita and Sevilla Cathedral tickets day of, but that was November and 6 years ago. If Alhambra tickets on their website are sold out, what are other options to get in?
Thanks for any help. I need to get back to my own trip, but I’d like to get my dear friend a good jump start on her trip.
