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 ourside 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 of your bags to do everything in a day is quite a big ask. If you don't have a car of your own, I'd consider this Seville to Ronda Transfer with Visit to Ronda.

Seville to Granada 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 in a day trip without a guided tour or a lot of planning.
