Travelling from Madrid to Cordoba


I am travelling into Spain for the first time and need some help. May I know what's the best way to get from Madrid to Cordoba?Is it easier that way or is it better from Madrid to Granada? How many days should I spend in Madrid and how many days in Cordoba and Granada?

Or do you suggest that I just stick to Granada, Cordoba and Seville?

I am planning on a 4 nights 5 days trip to Spain...

Hope anyone can help me out.

Madrid to Córdoba is very easy and quick on the AVE. Book online in advance and cheaper fares are available:

Read Buying Renfe Tickets Online in TA.

For 5 days you should skip one of those cities. You do not have enough time.

Hi There

I just did my first trip to Spain (but spent 5 weeks!) I caught the AVE from Madrid to Cordoba? Only leaves from the Attocha train station. The train station in cordoba is away from the mesquita and the bulk of the hotels/pensions so you'll need to find you way by local bus.

You could get away with just one day in Cordoba but you want at least 3 in Madrid.

We went to madrid, cordoba and seville. Seville was the most amazing place - tapa's and music...divine.

To fit in 3 places (without getting exhaustion) I'd suggest you try to saty 7 days. The travelling between towns will eat up anything from 3-4 hours per trip (finding train station, booking tickets, waiting for train, catching tranpsort to hotels, finding hotels, booking in etc).
