We (inc. my husband and 1 year old boy) are going to Spain for a week in October (3-10). I thought we should stay 4 days in Barcelona and then head to Seville or Andalusia.

Are 2 days enough for Seville? How can we go to Granada from Seville? and Can we fly from Granada to Barcelona?

If you have could suggest me possible itiniearies I would appreciate it!!!

Thank you.

Definitively you could do Barcelona with 3 days, as for Seville, my suggestion is for you to spend at least 3 to 4 days here.
You can use Seville as based to go to Cordoba (45 minutes high speed train) or Granada (2 hours approx. by bus).

> Can we fly from Granada to Barcelona?

- try Vueling airline with daily flights

That's a pretty ambitious plan that is going to involve a lot of travelling. You have six clear days not including travelling days. Then if you fly from Barcelona to Sevilla, that is another half-day gone (if your flight time is in the middle of the day, it's pretty much a whole day gone!). If you then have to get back to Barcelona to catch your flight home, that's more flying and hanging around in airports.

I presume you already have flights to/from Spain via Barcelona. Most people can happily spend 3 days in Barcelona seeing the main sights, but after that things begin to fade a bit. Why not visit other parts of Cataluña and cut out all that travelling? Either go south towards Sitges and Tarragona or north to the Empordá valley and the Costa Brava. After three days in the city, wouldn't it be nice to see countryside, coastline and small villages?

Then next time you come to Spain, come to Andalucía. In a week you could just about cover the Seville-Granada-Córdoba triangle with a little bit of time for the mountains and villages in between.

You can find lots of information on -snip- and/or -snip-.

Barcelona can take a week just on its own if you include the surrounding areas of Lloret and up to the Pyrenees but if you do want to travel down to Andalucia (incidentally Seville is in Andalucia) then Ryanair do flights from Girona to Seville. It would save you time travelling all the way there and back by road and the flight time is only a little over an hour or so. You will probably find flights for around €15 one way including tax.
A lot of people in Travellerspoint dont like Ryanair because of their attitude sometimes. But there is little to worry about on this flight. You can leave your big luggage at Girona airport just take what you need in one bag on board free and get there for a lot less money and in much less time than a car, coach or train would cost and take.
It's only about 50 miles from Barcelona to Girona, there are a couple of trains an hour and the journey is about 80 minutes. I think the fare is about €8 one way.
Spain at your fingertips on a shoestring.

I too think that seeing Barcelona, Sevilla and Granada in one week will be stressing if not impossible.

You can see the main atractions of the three cities in 6 days (3+2+1) and spend one day flying/driving/waiting but I don't think it's worth.

I would spend 4 in Barcelona and from there make three day trips to Tarragona, Girona and (if you have a car) a medieval town as Pals or Monet. And spend a week in Andalucia somewhen in the future.

If you want to see both regions spend three days in Barcelona, fly from there to Sevilla (check Iberia and Vueling), spend two in town and a third one in Granada (return ticket with train or bus because it will be difficult/expensive to catch a flight to Barcelona from there).

Take care!
