    Seville - Spain

    Seville is now accessible by a modern line connecting to Madrid by AVE. Taking less than 3 hours, it is not cheap, costing more than 70€.

    Vueling flies for almost the same price and gives you extra time to look around, for instance, the old and beautiful train station, now transformed in a shopping mall.

    The main railway station in Seville is the Estacion de Santa Justa in Avenida de Kansas City. You can book online at the Renfe website or purchase tickets at either the station or at travel agents around the city. The city has a high-speed train (AVE) which travels to and From Madrid around 15 times a day taking only about 2 ½ hours. Train travel to Cordoba is around 40 mins.

    From Madrid to Seville by AVE

    Hi,

    Madrid airport is not connected to the Spanish rail system; you have to go to Madrid Central station first, either by bus or metro.
    A very convenient - but not the cheapest - connection is by AVE Speedtrain, making Madrid-Sevilla in about 2,5 hours. The train is comfortable, offers tourist- club- and firstclass and some catering in all 3 classes. See schedule and prices at
    http://horarios.renfe.es/hir/ingles.html
    Have a nice stay !

    Regional Train to Sevilla

    Train route between Malaga and Sevilla
    1 more image

    It would have been a long drive between Malaga and Sevilla, so we opted for the train. A regional train runs between Malaga and Sevilla and takes about 2 hours and 15 minutes. The ride was comfortable and scenic - it was a much better choice than driving.

    For the most part, the route runs through miles and miles of olive groves. In some places, you will see nothing but. It gives you an idea of how huge the olive industry is for Spain. The route also goes through a beautiful gorge, as shown in this photo.

    We did not need reservations, but the train coming back from Sevilla was full, almost entirely with Spanish commuters and travelers.

    AVE to Sevilla

    ave

    The most convenient and comfortable way to get to Sevilla from Madid is the high speed AVE train from Atocha Station in Madrid. The trip takes just under 2.5 hours. One way AVE cost is about 67Euro in tourist class. Discount for buying round trip ticket. (and its also convient to see Cordoba too as that is one of the AVE stops on the way to Sevilla)

    Alternatively, if you are looking to spend around 30 euro for round trip, opt for the bus. They leave from the Mendez Alvaro bus station in Madrid and take about 7 hours.

    The best and fastest way to Sevilla is the high speed AVE trains from Madrid. Reservations are required and can be purchased in advance. This is advisable especially during high season. Check with Renfe (Spanish National Rail) or any companies that sell train tickets for schedules and price.

    The AVE

    You have to take the AVE, so enjoy it. I REALLY wish that the governments of Spain and Portugal would resurrect the rail connection between Lisbon and Sevilla. I hate having to go all the way through Madrid or to take a bus across the border.

  • Take an express train to Sevilla

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We took an express train from Madrid to Sevilla; the trip was approximately 1 1/2 hours. The train itself was very nice and clean. From what I understand, it is a waste of time to take a regular train as the travel time doubles or triples in doing so.

    AVE trains

    This fast train take you from Madrid (Estación de Atocha) to Seville (Estación de Santa Justa) only in two hours and half, what is really fast considering the distance.
    This train is a little expensieve, so you always have the alternative of the bus.

    From Madrid’s Atocha Renfe, the AVE high-speed train takes only two hours to arrive Seville at Estacion Santa Justa. The city’s San Pablo airport is the gateway by air.

    There is a bus guide available at the train station’s Tourist Information counter. Again there is no subway network in town and I would think the best way to see Seville is to walk, really.

    TRAINS!!! we took the high speed from Madrid to Sevilla, what a thrill. Trains will take you everywhere you want to go for day trips too ... Granada, Cordoba, Ronda, Malaga, Cadiz. Easy and cheap. The clerks didn't speak English and my Spanish es muy mal but they were incredibly helpful and everything worked out.
    Besides the Touristic Bus which lets on and off all day the regular buses are very very good and go everywhere.

    AVE-train from Madrid - fast and comfortable. And with a Travel-guarantee I have never seen before. If you are more than 5 minutes late, you will get your money back - at least that was what I was told
