Our tickets (3) have been booked: Atlanta-Madrid-Atlanta April 13-26. Now, I'm focusing on our route. As several postings have suggested, we're thinking of flying directly to Granada after landing in Madrid. After that, we plan to travel by train the rest of the way. The tentative itinerary is:
Granada 3 nights
After looking at everyone else's postings/itineraries, I wonder if there's any advantage/efficiency to going to Sevilla after Granada, and Cordoba after Sevilla? Any downside to our sticking to our original plan---Granada-Cordoba-Sevilla?
I'm traveling with my twenty-something niece and nephew. Any tips on lodging that comfortably accommodates 3 people. Was hoping not to have to get two hotel rooms, but don't want to be crammed. Will opt for whatever is comfortable for all.
My niece would like to include experience(s) that involve learning about a local product, e.g. olive oil, the making of cheese, wine, etc. Any particular recommendations?
I just checked on Flights from Madrid to Granada and there is nothing convenient. The ALSA Premium bus service picks up at the Madrid airport and seems to be a good price. The trip is 5 hours and would get us to Granada by early evening. Would get to see the countryside... Anyone have experience with ALSA and/or recommendations about taking the bus?
