We are on one of the Fall Spain My Way tours. We'll arrive 1 1/2 days early in Barcelona to get more time in there. We end in Sevilla (have 1 1/2 days there) on a Sunday morning but do not leave Spain (out of Barcelona) until Tuesday morning.
My quandary is how to spend the last two days. I noticed our Monday is October 12 which is Spanish National Holiday. I believe it is not a major holiday but still might affect what we could see and how we could travel.
I'm liking the idea of traveling on Sunday from Sevilla to Cordoba by AVE train to see the Mezquita . Spend the night in Cordoba and then continue on to Barcelona by AVE train on Monday, the holiday (assuming we can get transportation.) We want to be in Barcelona the night before departing not wanting to risk missing our flight!!
For anyone who knows about this things, would you please share your opinion?
Other options I've come up with are:
1. Take the AVE train from Sevilla to Barcelona on Sunday and spend an extra 1 1/2 days there.
2. Spend another day in Sevilla and take the AVE train to Barcelona on Monday (if trains are running on a holiday.)
3. Something else wonderful I haven't come up with!
Thank you Thank you Thank you for your help!
