There are a few different routes you could take to get from Valencia to Seville. You have the option of taking highways A3 and A4—this is the quickest route, and takes you through the historic city of Cordoba, with its famous Mezquita, Synagogue, and Alcazar.
You could also choose to take highway A92. While this will lengthen your trip by about 45 minutes, it will give you the opportunity to visit the university city of Murcia, as well as Granada, where the famous Alhambra palace is located. If you do intend to visit the Alhambra, be sure to book ahead, as the palace can only be visited by advance booking and tickets sell out quickly.
For those who enjoy hiking, you can consider stopping off at the Sierra de Andujar, Sierras de Cazorla, or Sierra Nevada nature parks for some great views.
