Madrid-Seville: How to go and what to expect
Madrid-Seville is a popular 500 km trip. As you know, Seville is one of the most beautiful cities in Spain, its multiple influences through such a rich history have made Seville a shocking town that is worth a visit, nevertheless, how do you get there? In this article, we’re going to tell you several options.
Madrid-Seville by train: by far, the more comfortable choice
The high speed train was open in 1992 for the legendary Seville’s World Fair and it’s been working successfully ever since. Maybe you think we’re in love with the trains, but it’s truly the best option. 500 km., ran in two and half hours, isn’t that great? Furthermore, you can go in the silent wagon if you’re not a talker or just need some sleep. Bad thing: it’s far from being the cheaper choice: with some luck, you can have a one ride ticket for 40 €. That’s why we advise to plan your trip with time. Finally, the train will arrive to Santa Justa Station, very close to downtown and with easy connections by good and safe public transport.

Madrid-Seville by coach: cheaper, but longer
It’s a long, long, long way. And can be even longer if you get dizzy on the coach. Just kidding, do not worry, the highway is fine, so there’s no need to have a bad time. The average time to cover the distance between Madrid and Seville is 6 hours 30 minutes, but you can have a round trip ticket for 60 euros. A very good option might be to get the premium ticket because the seats are much more comfortable, so, once you’re seated, the travel is way easier. The coach will arrive to Plaza de Armas Station, on the west, which is a place with less connections than Santa Justa, but closer to the old city.

Is it worthy to travel by plane?
No, it’s not from our point of view. Prices are changing a lot, you’ve got to value the weight of your baggage, get to the airport long before the time… And, of course, both airports, Madrid and Seville, are not precisely close to the city. Consequently, you would have to leave at the same time as if you were going by train and you would arrive more or less at the same time too. Again, take your time and plan your trip… maybe you’ll find an offer!
