Barcelona to Seville - or - Andorra - Day Trip?

Is it possible to do a day trip from Barcelona to Seville? If so, any ideas on how we could do that?

Also - how about a day trip to Andorra?

Isn't Seville on the opposite side of Spain? So you're talking an overnight train to get there, and then an overnight train to get back...

taking a day trip from Barcelona to Seville would be like visiting Geneva NY and deciding to take a day trip to Chicago.

andorra would be like going from Geneva NY to Niagra Falls.

I hope that helps answer your question.

A day trip to Seville is certainly possible.

For example:

June 3

Spanair 6600 departs BCN 7:10 arr SVQ 8:45

Spanair 6616 departs SVQ 19:45 arr BCN 21:15

US $96 round trip, all in

There's a return flight at 21:35 as well.

Or, Iberia has flights for US $131.

Adding to correc posting above. After getting to the airport you have to get downtown. Say ahlf an hour by cab. Bus is going to be longer. Then after about 1.30 until 4.30 places to visit will close. Then you have to add another 30 mins to plus an hour for security (maybe long) when return ing to airport. So you time to site see is little. Forget it for one day is what I am trying to say.

Even if it can be done I think it doesn't make much sense. There are many things to see in Seville, you'd probably get a bit frustrated if you'd stay there only for some hours.

The trip Andorra is more do-able but also a bit too far out for a 1-day trip in my opinion. To get there you need to take a bus or rent a car, the duration of the trip must be something like 2.5 hours... it would make sense if want to go there for shopping, but you wouldn't get to see much of its great scenery.

There's regular discussion on TA and in guidebooks on day trips London-Paris and Madrid-Seville.

Barcelona-Seville involves similar travel time (even with airport transit/security) and is cheaper than those other trips, so some would consider it.

Analogy: For a European spending a week in Los Angeles, a 13-hour day trip to San Francisco for 70 Eur might seem reasonable.
