Malaga

Many tourists ignore the capital of the Costa del Sol entirely, heading straight for the beaches west of the city instead, although cruise-ship tourism now brings plenty of visitors to the city. Approaching Málaga from the airport, you'll be greeted by huge 1970s high-rises that march determinedly toward Torremolinos. But don’t give up so soon: in its center and eastern suburbs, this city of about 550,000 people is a pleasant port, with ancient streets and lovely villas amid exotic foliage. View more

Blessed with a subtropical climate, it's covered in lush vegetation and averages some 324 days of sunshine a year. Málaga has been spruced up with restored historic buildings and some great shops, bars, and restaurants. A new cruise-ship terminal and the opening of the prestigious Museo Carmen Thyssen in March 2011 have also boosted tourism, although there are still far fewer visitors here than in Seville, Córdoba, and Granada. Arriving from Nerja, you'll enter Málaga through the suburbs of El Palo and Pedregalejo, once traditional fishing villages. Here you can eat fresh fish in the numerous chiringuitos and stroll Pedregalejos's seafront promenade or the tree-lined streets of El Limonar. At sunset, walk along the Paseo Marítimo and watch the lighthouse start its nightly vigil. A few blocks inland is Málaga's bullring, La Malagueta, built in 1874. Continuing west, stroll through the Muelle Uno (port-front commercial center). It's great for a drink and for soaking up views of the old quarter. From here, stroll along the Palmeral (Palm Walk), and you'll soon reach the city center and the inviting Plaza de la Marina. From here, walk through the shady, palm-lined gardens of the Paseo del Parque or browse on Calle Marqués de Larios, the elegant pedestrian-only main shopping street.

Silver Shore Privato: The Alhambra by Private Van

Experience the history and grandeur of one of Spain's most famous attractions during this full-day visit to Granada and the Alhambra Palace in your private van with your exclusive licensed guide, who will join you at the Alhambra.


Granada rose to fame when the Moors transferred the seat of their diminishing dominions to this city, which is located amidst the low foothills of the Sierra Nevada. Granada's crowning glory is the Alhambra, the Moorish citadel complex with its splendid palace overlooking the city.


Depart the pier in your air-conditioned private van for the approximate 80-mile (129-kilometre) drive to Granada.


The Alhambra

Upon reaching the Alhambra, the last capital of the Moors, meet the local guides and begin a walking tour of its magnificent buildings and gardens. A short walk takes you to the entrance of the vast complex. Begun in 1238 by the Moorish ruler Ibn el-Ahmer, the fortified hilltop complex became a world-renowned centre of art and culture. It was so impressive that the Christian conquerors of the day could not bear to destroy it. Today, the legendary Alhambra remains Spain's most outstanding symbol of Moorish heritage.


Royal Palace

Follow your guide through a maze of pathways and corridors to the Palacio Arabe. Its splendid interior captivates with an endless procession of intricately-carved ceilings, and beautiful tiled floors, walls, arches and fountains. Of special note is the impressive marble colonnade leading to the Court of Myrtles and the Patio of the Lions. This famous courtyard, with its alabaster basin supported by 12 marble lions, is among the most photographed sites in Spain.


Generalife

Your walk continues along landscaped pathways to the Generalife, site of the Moorish rulers' summer palace. Its location on higher ground made it a pleasant and cool retreat. The gardens are renowned for their terraced flowerbeds, fountains and spectacular views of the city.


Following your visit, proceed to the Ruta del Veleta restaurant for lunch. After lunch, take a panoramic drive through Granada's city centre before commencing the approximate 80-mile (129-kilometre) return drive to Málaga.


Please note: The above itinerary is a suggestion only as you reserve the right to make changes after speaking to your licensed guide. Lunch and admission to the venues noted above are included in this programme. This tour requires an extensive amount of walking (2.5 hours) inside the Alhambra. The drive between the pier and Granada is approximately 2 hours in each direction. This tour is not suitable for guests with limited mobility or those who utilise a wheelchair. This programme is sold by the vehicle which will accommodate a maximum of 6 guests per van. Only one person in your party need reserve a single ticket for this programme.

Spectacular Historic Ronda

Indulge your senses with the spectacular beauty of Andalusia without the crowds typically found in coastal resorts during this full-day visit to charismatic Ronda. The city is famous worldwide for its dramatic escarpments and views, and for the deep El Tajo gorge that carries the rio Guadalevín through its centre.


Depart the pier for the scenic, approximate 2-hour drive to Ronda. En route, proceed inland and through the scenic Serrania Mountain region.


Ronda

Ronda's cultural background combines Moorish influence with Christian Spanish remains. However, most visitors come here because of Ronda's unique setting in which two parts of the town come together astride the breath-taking 300-foot-deep (90-metre) Tajo Gorge. The gorge's steep cliffs plunge into the Guadalevin River ravine. It was this near-impregnable location that kept Ronda in Muslim hands until 1485, when Catholic kings finally conquered it. Upon arrival, see the 13th-century Almocabar Gate, which provided access to the castle, town and the 16th-century Carlos V Gate.


Bullring

Your walking tour commences along the ring road towards the bullring, which dates back to the Catholic kings and is recognised as the oldest bullring in Spain. From here, pass through the Paseo Blas Infante for a spectacular panoramic vista over the Tajo Gorge, then proceed towards Plaza España across the 18th-century New Bridge, whose central part was formerly used as a prison and is today the symbol of the town.


Bosco House

A stop is made for a visit the Salesian San Juan Bosco House, which is renowned for its beautiful ceramics and gardens, and excellent views to the other side of the Tajo Gorge. Next, continue past the House of the Moorish Kings, the 18th-century Palace of the Marquis of Salvatierra and the well-preserved Arab baths that date from the 13th century.


Mondragón Palace

Your walking tour then passes by the Plaza del Gigante, site of the Mondragón Palace. Constructed in 1314 by Abolemic, the King of Ronda, it has been the residence of many kings and governors ever since.


Santa María La Mayor

Your tour concludes with a brief visit to the 13th-century church, 'Santa María La Mayor', a former mosque that was converted into a church by King Ferdinand. Following your guided visit, some free time is made available for lunch and further exploration on your own.

Picasso & Old Málaga

Málaga is not only the capital of the Costa del Sol, but also a cultural reference on a national and international level. Since opening in 2003, the Picasso museum has surpassed the most optimistic forecasts, enabling visitors to enjoy over two hundred major works by an artist considered to be the towering genius of 20th-century world painting.


Málaga

Depart the pier by walking into the city of Málaga, one of the oldest cities in the world, founded in the 8th century founded by the Phoenicians. Your first stop is Calle Larios, the main shopping street of Málaga.


Next, cross Constitution Square, then walk along Calle Granada to the Plaza de la Merced. Here, discover Picasso's birthplace and an exhibition about the famous artist, then proceed to the highlight of the tour, the Picasso Museum of Málaga, or 'Museo Picasso Málaga'.


Picasso Museum

The Picasso Museum is permanently housed in the Palacio de Buenavista, a 16th-century historical building that is adorned with the Andalusian architecture of the day, along with a unique blend of Renaissance and Mudejar elements. Museo Picasso Málaga was created in response to Pablo Picasso's own desire for his work to be present in the city where he was born on October 25, 1881. The museum was created thanks to Christine and Bernard Ruiz-Picasso, the artist's daughter-in-law and grandson, whose donations constitute the core of the collection. It was also made possible thanks to the efforts of the Junta de Andalucía, which coordinated the major project of setting up a museum devoted to the artist whose styles and techniques changed the course of modern art.


Bodega El Pimpi

Following your guided museum visit, proceed to the Bodega El Pimpi for some tapas accompanied by wine.


Afterward, you may opt to return directly to the pier, or remain in the city for further exploration before taking the shuttle back to the pier.

Many of the buildings in Mijas are decorated with iron grilles and brilliant flowers spilling over the walls. Its superb location and typical Andalusian ambience make Mijas a popular tourist spot.

Málaga Highlights

Explore the splendid landmarks, attractions and architecture of the capital of the Costa del Sol during this scenic, half-day visit to Málaga, a historic and culturally rich provincial capital which has long lived in the shadow of the iconic Andalucian cities of Granada, Córdoba and Seville. Yet, it has rapidly emerged as the province's city of culture with its so-called 'mile of art' being compared to Madrid, and its dynamism and fine dining to Barcelona.


Depart the pier for the approximate 30-minute sightseeing drive along Alameda Boulevard en route to the hilltop location of Gibralfaro.


Gibralfaro

As you walk along the ramparts crowning the 560-foot (168-metre) summit, take in splendid views over the city, the harbour and the bullring. Afterward, re-board the coach for the drive back down to the city centre.


Alcazaba

From City Hall, take a brief walk to the Alcazaba. At the foot of this ancient fortress, view the excavated ruins of a Roman amphitheatre. The restored Alcazaba dates back to the 11th century, when the king of Granada ordered the fortress built and modelled on the style of the Alhambra. After the Christian conquest, the Catholic kings took over the Alcazaba, and King Philip IV used it as his Málaga residence. Leaving the Alcazaba, your walk continues on to the cathedral.


Cathedral

The cathedral's splendid interior is highlighted by exquisitely-carved choir stalls, and other fine examples of Spanish Renaissance sculpture.

DAY ONE - Málaga / Córdoba

Start your adventure in Andalusia with a drive from Málaga port to El Torcal. El Torcal is made up of limestone which was created underwater millions of years ago. The sedimentary layers of rock were pushed upwards by tectonic plate movements. These plates continued to move, causing giant fissures in the rocks. Over the last few million years this Andalucian landscape has been further shaped by wind and rain into spectacular sculptures.


The easiest way to visit this area is by foot from the Visitor Centre. From here several trails begin. Spend approximately one hour walking along the 'Green' trail for a 0.9mile (1.5km) short stroll. After a guided walk the journey continues with the drive to Antequera, where you will enjoy lunch at the Parador after a leisure walk through the old town.


After lunch continue on to Córdoba, city of Caliphs. Córdoba is a seductive city with many attractive monuments, in particular the famous Cathedral/Mosque, the largest one of its kind in Europe.


Christians, Jews and Moorish people were living in Córdoba for several centuries in peace and harmony. The first universities of the whole western world were founded in Córdoba in the 10th century, and, compared with other cities, Córdoba's citizens enjoyed street lighting and paved streets many centuries before London and Paris.


Your day concludes as you check-in to the hotel. Enjoy the rest of the evening at leisure to explore on your own. A set menu dinner is served at the hotel this evening.

Set out from the hotel for a visit of the old town and the "famous" Mezquita, the most powerful Moorish building in Europe as well the former Jewish quarter with its synagogue. It comprises a lavish mosque in which a cathedral of Gothic, Baroque and Plateresque elements has been built. It is a fascinating building which offers surprising light and colour effects as well as beautiful doors and nearly a thousand columns.


At the conclusion of your visit, continue on to Seville, the capital of Andalusia. This unique, compact and relaxing city has a rich cultural heritage, and has also been a symbol of tolerance between Arabic, Jewish and Christian cultures.


Upon arrival your guide will show you the most interesting sights during a panoramic ride with a stop at the amazing Spanish Square. Proceed from here to the Jewish Quarter for lunch. The Barrio de Santa Cruz, with its labyrinth of narrow streets, wrought-iron-grilled windows, white washed buildings and tiled patios is the ideal setting for a tapas lunch at the charming restaurant Casa Roman.

DAY ONE - Málaga / Córdoba

Start your adventure in Andalusia with a drive from Málaga port to El Torcal. El Torcal is made up of limestone which was created underwater millions of years ago. The sedimentary layers of rock were pushed upwards by tectonic plate movements. These plates continued to move, causing giant fissures in the rocks. Over the last few million years this Andalucian landscape has been further shaped by wind and rain into spectacular sculptures.


The easiest way to visit this area is by foot from the Visitor Centre. From here several trails begin. Spend approximately one hour walking along the 'Green' trail for a 0.9mile (1.5km) short stroll. After a guided walk the journey continues with the drive to Antequera, where you will enjoy lunch at the Parador after a leisure walk through the old town.


After lunch continue on to Córdoba, city of Caliphs. Córdoba is a seductive city with many attractive monuments of which the Cathedral/Mosque is the largest one of its kind in Europe.


Christians, Jews and Moorish people were living in Córdoba for several centuries in peace and harmony. The first universities of the whole western world were founded in Córdoba in the 10th century, and, compared with other cities, Córdoba's citizens enjoyed street lighting and paved streets many centuries before London and Paris.


The sights and narrow streets of Córdoba must be seen on foot. Upon arrival you will meet your local guide for the visit of the old town and the "famous" Mezquita, the most powerful Moorish building in Europe as well the former Jewish quarter with its synagogue. It comprises a lavish mosque in which a cathedral of Gothic, Baroque and Plateresque elements has been built. It is a fascinating building which offers surprising light and colour effects as well as beautiful doors and nearly a thousand columns.


Your day concludes as you check-in to the hotel. Enjoy the rest of the evening at leisure to explore on your own. A set menu dinner is served at the hotel this evening.


Overnight at Palacio de Balilo (or similar) - Córdoba


DAY TWO - Córdoba / Cádiz

Enjoy breakfast before checking out and setting off to Seville, the capital of Andalusia. This unique, compact and relaxing city has a rich cultural heritage, and has also been a symbol of tolerance between Arabic, Jewish and Christian cultures.


Upon arrival your guide will show you the most interesting sights during a panoramic ride with stop at the amazing Spanish Square. As stop will also be made at the Alcazar, a 14th century fortress / palace that continues to serve the Spanish royal family. The marvellous architecture, intricate decorations, fragrant gardens and sparkling fountains are sure to make your visit memorable.


The Barrio de Santa Cruz is the old Jewish quarter, with its labyrinth of narrow streets, wrought-iron-grilled windows, white washed buildings and tiled patios. Here you will be invited for a tapas lunch at the charming restaurant Casa Roman in the very heart of the Jewish Quarter.


Before you depart for the 1.5 hour return drive to Cádiz, discover Seville's majestic Gothic cathedral. Built on the site of a mosque that was demolished, the massive cathedral took more than a century to build. Some remnants of the original mosque remain, including the lovely Courtyard of the Orange Trees, a gate with Islamic metalwork, and the towering 12th century minaret, which is now known as the Giralda bell tower.


Your program concludes at the pier where you will join the ship.
