Andalucia Suggestions
by: Adam

I love you general itenary of flying into Madrid as it is a great place to start your travels in Spain.

Some of my sugestions to travel to the Andalucia provence are as follows.

Take the AVE to Sevilla as it is an experience within itself. It is comfortable, quick, and romantic.

Give Seville several days as it is worth the time. Visit the main attractions in Seville, the cathedral, the alcazar, plaza de espana, and more.

Day trip out of Seville...
Cadiz is easy to visit by trane, as is the wineries at Jerez de la Frontera, and other cute towns.

The Roman Ruins of Italica are one of my favorite day trips from Seville. I usually take the bus, it takes about 30 minutes from the bus station.

Matalasca├▒as...a great little beach town that is about 45 minutes by bus from Seville. Makes a great beach day in an area that is mostly visited by locals.

As far as hotels their are many great hotels to choose from in Seville and it really depends on your taste. My advice for picking one is to remember that the star system is a little different in Spain. Three star hotels would not bother me like they would in the U.S., even two star hotels are not that bad. Every hotel and hostel I have ever stayed in in Seville has been decent, safe, and clean. Lower stars would usually mean no breakfast included, the towels are not the big fluffy ones and the accomodations are just simpler in general.

Find a place with breakfast included as it will save you time plus it is easier to navigate the free breakfast at the hotel where the servers speak English. The bars/cafes are an experience worth trying but the servers rarely speak another language and quick meals are not common.

Location...if you do not like the idea of navigating the public transportation system or dealing with taxi drivers pick a hotel in the city center like Hotel Albanico, Hotel San Francisco, or even Hotel Alfonso VIII.

Seville is one of my favorite places in the world and hope you come to love it too. While there remember to relax (tranquilo), enjoy it and soak it in.
