Highs & Lows

The drive from Malaga to Sevilla is very nice! You could make a stop in some local towns on the way!

In the summer, Sevilla might be a little too hot and sunny. It’s easy to get sunburns there!

Itinerary Overview

We arrived by plane and got a taxi to the city center. Our hotel was located near the center, which I’d recommend since most activities are located here. A trip to Malaga should always include a visit to the cathedral, the stunning Alcazaba, and the beautiful beach. In four or five days, you should be able to visit the most highlights in Malaga. Moreover, Malaga is a great starting point for a daytrip to Granada: an enchanting and historic city.

After one week, we rented a car to drive to Sevilla. The reason we chose the combination of Malaga and Sevilla is that in my opinion they complement each other really well. Malaga gives more of a city-like vibe, with a beach and musea, whilst Sevilla is the perfect place to just chill in the sun with a copa de sangria!

Q & A

  • Anything go wrong during the trip?

    As stated before, Sevilla is one of the hottest city’s in Europe in the summer. The sun can really be dangerous, so I got heavy sunburns. Don’t forget to stay hydrated and take sunscreen with you if you visit in the summer!

  • How was the food?

    Malaga: Kraken - Amazing (little bit high-end) tapas. It differs from typical tapas restaurants, but uses mostly the same main ingredients. By far the best restaurant I have been to in Malaga!

  • What tips would you give a friend?

    There is a lot to see in both city’s, maybe even too much. I would highly recommend to everyone to also take a day off and just chill out on the beach. We just planned to much sightseeing on our holidays!

  • Transportation Tips?

    Try to rent a car if you’d like to visit both cities. If you’d like to do a daytrip to Granada, you should go by bus. The busstation in Malaga is about a 20 minute walk from the city center!
