Help with itinerary Adulucia

I will be coming from Valencia and would like to stop in Granada, then Sevilla and then fly to Portugal. What is the best way to do this without back tracking? I see that there are no flights to Granada from Valencia as well as no direct trains.

Thank you for your help!

The fastest rail route is through Madrid. It needn't be terribly costly if you buy the ticket in advance. When are you traveling?

ALSA runs buses, but they take a long time. If you opt to travel that way, try pricing out two separate tickets to and from Murcia. After I bought my through ticket, I noticed that I could have saved money by doing that. I guess there must be some sort of special deal on intra-regional tickets. The fellow in the ticket booth was surprised when I showed him the prices on the vending machine.

I bought that bus ticket not long before my trip--probably the day before. I've seen Spanish bus tickets that were a lot cheaper if bought well in advance. I have no idea whether that might apply to the Valencia-Granada route.

The ALSA buses are comfortable, but honesty forces me to report that there's a rogue driver on that route who, if he heads out late, will try to get back on schedule by skipping nearly all the comfort stops. Be ready to hop of the bus and run (literally) to the toilet.

You can try for transportation options from Valencia to Granada. I haven't been to Valencia so I can't help you there. Once you get to Granada, you can take the train or ALSA bus from Granada to Seville. Are you planning on visiting Cordoba? I highly recommend it. The Mezquita is magnificent, and there are other interesting sites in Cordoba. The Juderia is a wonderful place for exploring with its narrow lanes, white-washed buildings, patios and flower pots. It's possible to visit Cordoba as a day trip from Seville; however, if you have the time, I recommend staying overnight for 1 or 2 nights.
