Seville and Granada are two of the finest cities in Spain and are considered some of the best two-city breaks in Spain. Learn more details of how to get from Seville to Granada by various forms of transport.
The Best Way
The bus and train cost approximately the same, so choose which you take based on the proximity of the bus or train station to your hotel.
Stops en route from Seville to Granada: There are three good stops on the way between these two cities: Ronda, Antequera, and Cordoba. Antequera, with its fantastic dolmens and 'lovers' rock' is the one that is most directly on the way, but be aware that the train from Seville to Antequera stops at a stop insanely far outside the city, with only an expensive taxi into town: only do this stop if you are driving.
Ronda is the best place to stop on the way, but to fit in all the travel, sightseeing and storing your bags to do everything in a day is quite a big ask. If you don't have a car of your own, consider the Seville to Ronda.
By Train and Bus
The train from Seville to Granada takes about three hours and costs under 25€.
Buses from Seville to Granada take about three hours and cost around 20 euros. Sometimes prices vary for no reason, so check you're getting the cheapest!
The bus leaves from the Prado Bus Station. You can book most bus tickets in Spain online for only a tiny administration fee (about one euro). Just pay with a credit card and print out the e-ticket.
The 260km from Seville to Granada can be covered in under 3 hours, driving mainly on the A-92 highway.
By Guided Tour
A guided tour is a great way to see Seville or Granada and there some excellent one- and two-day tours available. I would particularly recommend the trip from Seville to Granada, as it includes skip-the-line entry to the Alhambra. Visiting the Alhambra by yourself is virtually impossible on a day trip without a guided tour or a lot of planning.
If you're pressed for time, you may be interested in a whistle-stop four- or five-day guided tour, starting in Madrid, which takes in Seville, Granada, and Cordoba (with an optional extension in Ronda and Toledo).
