    • Our Airport representative will meet & greet you.
    • Pick – up from Airport and transfer to the hotel in Malaga as this is a port city on southern Spain’s Costa del Sol, known for its high-rise hotels and resorts jutting up from yellow-sand beaches.
    • Check-In to the hotel.

    DAY 2
    Malaga

    • Breakfast at the hotel.
    • Pick up from hotel for the local sight-seeing and visit few amazing places like, La Alcazaba, Roman Theatre and Malaga Cathedral.
    • LA ALCAZABA: With powerful walls visible from almost anywhere in the city, Malaga’s Alcazaba is a Moorish fortress palace and valuable monument from the Islamic era. It was first erected in the 8th century and was bolstered and expanded over the next five hundred years. On this hill there are two sets of walls which are protecting an inner and outer citadel. The outer citadel contains the palace’s stunning gardens with fountains and gateways that the Arabs built out of old Roman columns.Within the second set of walls is the palace and stately dwellings that are spread across three peaceful courtyard gardens.
    • ROMAN THEATER: Just down the hill, beyond the outer walls of the Alcazaba is the best ancient monument in the city. The theatre was in use for around 300 years up to the 200s but then was forgotten about and even used as a quarry during the Moorish period.The structure was only rediscovered in 1951 and considering all it’s been through is actually in pretty good shape today.Several tiers of seating of the 16 metre-high cavea (spectator’s circle) remain undamaged and there’s a recently-opened visitor centre showing off some of the finds at the site including amphorae and everyday tools.
    • MALAGA CATHEDRAL: The city’s cathedral took more than 150 years to build, and so is a kind of melange of renaissance and baroque styles.The facade for example was one of the last parts to be completed and is suitably grand, with arches, columns pilasters and stone reliefs depicting saints. The cathedral’s north tower is 84 metres-tall, second only in Andalusia to La Giralda in Seville. There was supposed to be a South Tower, but instead the funds for this were diverted to help America gain independence from the British.You can read about this on the cathedral’s information plaque where the tower should have been.
    • Back to hotel and overnight stay.

    DAY 3
    Malaga

    • Breakfast at the hotel.
    • Pick up from hotel and today you’ll explore the maximum and the best of Malaga by visiting places like, Castillo de Gibralfaro, Museo Del Vidrio and Parque de Malaga.CASTILLO DE GIBRALFARO: Like the Alcazaba this hilltop fortress looms above the city. It’s a majestic landmark that you might recognize from Malaga and the wider province’s emblems. Unlike the Alcazaba the site has a more warlike purpose, with lookout towers and ramparts that are still standing today, competing with the pines on the hillside.There has been a fortress here since the Phoenicians more than 2,500 years ago and this castle was the scene of a pivotal siege in 1487 The Muslim Malagueños held out against King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella for three months before surrendering when they ran out of food.
    • MUSEO DEL VIDRIO: This intriguing little museum is in a lovely old house from the 1700s, with exposed beams in the ceilings, period furniture and tasteful decoration.What people come to see though is the large collection of antique glassware that spans several thousand years. There are pieces from a range of ancient civilizations: Phoenicians, Romans, Ancient Greeks and Egyptians.Check out the green Roman glass bowl, still intact 2,000 years later.Then further on you’ll see beautiful Venetian items, glassware from the 17th-century Dutch Golden Age and a collection of English lead glass including jugs and wine cups from the 1500s.
    • PARQUE DE MALAGA: When the heat is on, this esplanade is like diving into the undergrowth, and you’ll be surprised how cool it can be, even in the summer.The broad, lush fronds of the towering palm trees provide ample shade over the three main walkways.There’s also something surreal about seeing ornate pieces of baroque and renaissance sculptures and fountains surrounded by subtropical plants.In front of the City Council building is a beautiful rose garden, ringed by orange trees and cypresses
    • Back to hotel and overnight stay.

    DAY 4
    Malaga

    • Breakfast at the hotel.
    • After breakfast pick up from hotel for your full day tour.
    • Visit Automobile and Fashion Museum Here’s an attraction that celebrates the finer things in life. Both guys and girls will find something to admire. For the blokes there are 100 classic cars, including Maseratis, Cadillac’s, Aston Martins and Bugattis.The collection goes back to the earliest years of automotive travel with a De Dion Bouton from 1903.As you journey through the decades, from the roaring 20s to the 1950s Dolce Vita era the museum adds historical context to models on show. You can make a similar trip through the years in the seven fashion galleries, where 200 original pieces of haute-couture are on display.
    • Time to visit Picasso’s Malaga Pablo Picasso was born in Malaga, so no trip can be complete without paying tribute to this 20th-century icon. You will head first to his birthplace or Casa Natal on Plaza de la Merced. It’s a few minutes on foot from all the city’s landmarks, and his parents rented the first floor for a couple of years at the start of the 1880s.There’s a small collection of his artwork, as well as artefacts from his youth. A larger display of his paintings can be seen at the Picasso Museum a couple of minutes away (tickets should be booked in advance).Much of these are from his formative early-20th century years (Olga Khokhlova with Mantilla, 1917) but they illustrate the artist’s growth in that time
    • Next you will visit Malaga Football Club; in the northern suburbs is La Rosaleda, a marvelous stadium with a 30,000 capacity.Its home team, Malaga CF, has been in the Primera División for almost a decade now.For a period Malaga underwent huge investment from their Qatari owner, which propelled them to the Champions’ League, but he has stopped pumping money into the club so they have fallen back a bit.At any rate, every other week from August to May you can see matches from Europe’s best league here, and there’s also a stadium tour and museum documenting Malaga CF’s famous players and trophies.
    • Back to hotel and overnight stay.

    DAY 5
    Malaga – Granada – Murica

    • Breakfast at the hotel.
    • After breakfast check-out from hotel as you will travel today to Murcia while you will explore Granada on the way.
    • Visit ALHAMBRA: This magnificent sight is hard to sum up with a few words: The Alhambra is a palace, castle, summer retreat and enclosed town all in one enchanting place. It was built during the 1200s and 1300s for the Nasrids, who ruled the Emirate of Granada in the final centuries of Muslim control in Andalucia.After the “Reconquista” it also became the royal court of the Catholic Monarchs, Isabella I and Ferdinand II. Book well in advance and spend an enthralling day pottering about royal chambers, serene courtyards and divine renaissance and Moorish palaces.
    • Visit GRANADA CATHEDRAL: Built on top of Granada’s mosque at the start of the 16th century this magnificent building is Spain’s second-largest cathedral.It was erected during a transition in fashion, so the foundations are gothic even if the main structure and interior are from the renaissance. The person charged with trying to find some harmony between the styles was Diego de Siloé and his efforts won him a lot of contemporary acclaim.To soak up the brilliance of this cathedral stand in the main chapel and lift your gaze to the stained glass windows, sculptures and paintings on the sides.
    • Next Visit ROYAL CHAPEL: Next to the cathedral is the resting place of two of Spain’s most important rulers.The Catholic Monarchs, Isabella I and Ferdinand II are interred here, and had completed the Christian re-conquest of Spain from the Moors at the end of the 1400s.Their beautiful tomb is made from alabaster and was designed by the Italian sculptor Domenico Fancelli.
    • The tombs of their, successors Joanna of Castile and Philip I, are also in the Royal Chapel, as well as the Catholic Monarchs’ grandson, Miguel da Paz, the Prince of Portugal who died in infancy.Before you move ahead on your way to Murcia, Visit THE BANUELO: From the street they may seem like nothing but the baths on Carrera Del Darro are a real rarity.Most bathing establishments were destroyed following the re-conquest as they had a scandalous reputation akin to brothels. In fact these baths only survived because they were underneath a private home that was built at the time the city was taken, so you’ll get a rare glimpse inside a real hammam from the days of the Emir.What’s fascinating is the way the columns supporting the arches inside have capitals that once belonged to Roman and even visigothic buildings.All the chambers have star-shaped openings in their ceilings, creating eerie shafts of sunlight.
    • Post doing all sightseeing you will straight drive to Murcia.
    • Reach Murcia and check-in to the hotel.
    • Overnight at the hotel.

    DAY 6
    Murica – Valencia

    • Breakfast at the hotel.
    • After breakfast Check-out from the hotel and drive to Valencia.
    • Arrive and check-in to the hotel.
    • Rest and get ready in the second half of your perfect relaxation by visiting JARDIN DEL TURIA: This astounding park brings you fresh air and relaxation right in the middle of the city. It came about in the 20th century after the River Turia burst its banks in 1957 causing great damage to the city.
    • The river was diverted and in the 80s its riverbed in the city was turned into nine kilometres of verdant green space. A total of 18 bridges still cross the riverbed, the oldest dating back to the Middle Ages, and are now just another part of the unusual scenery in the park. Several landscape architects were drafted in to build these gardens, creating a scene of pine forest, orange groves, palms and paths that lead past sports facilities, play areas and fountains.
    • Back to hotel overnight stay.  

    DAY 7
    Valencia

    • Breakfast at the hotel.
    • After breakfast pick up from hotel for your full day Valencian tour and start by visit the 15th Century building which is a UNESCO site LA LONJA DE LA SEDA: This majestic late-15th-century building is a UNESCO site and held as the masterpiece of Valencian gothic architecture. La Lonja de la Seda is the finest a monument to Valencia’s golden age, when the city was one of Europe’s main centres for trade and culture. The name means “Silk Exchange”, where traders from far flung pats of the Mediterranean would meet and make deals. Inside you can marvel at the dainty twisting columns of the main hall (sala de contratación) and look up at the incredible detail of the vaulted ceilings. Its tough-looking crenellated outline sits right in front of the city’s central market.
    • Visit CITY OF THE ARTS AND SCIENCES: It can be difficult to wrap your head around the City of the Arts and Sciences. The attraction is a staggering ensemble of ultra-modern structures that are given an ethereal quality by the reflecting pools that surround them.The whole thing was started in the mid-90s and the finishing touches were made in 2005. Within these gargantuan buildings are cultural venues and first-class family attractions like L’Hemisfèric, a planetarium and IMAX Cinema, or the breathtaking L’Umbracle, a botanical collection of plant species native to Valencia.
    • Next you Visit OCEANOGRAFIC: The star of the City of the Arts and Sciences is this cutting-edge oceanarium that opened in 2003. With 45,000 individual animals from 500 different species, you won’t find another attraction on this scale in Europe.The aquarium is organized by ten zones, each synthesizing a distinct environment, and using real seawater pumped from Valencia’s waterfront. So at the Arctic tank you’ll get to see beluga whales swimming in a spacious and thoughtfully designed tank.Elsewhere you can spot sand tiger sharks, penguins, walruses, dolphins and sea lions. It all adds up to a day out adults and little guys won’t soon forget.
    • Evening chill out on the MALVARROSA BEACH: Within minutes of the old-town you could be sunning yourself on a Mediterranean beach. Malvarrosa is a wide strip of golden sand that stretches for a kilometre along the city’s seafront.The beach has been awarded the Blue Flag for all the amenities it provides, from lifeguard towers, a medical station, drinking fountains and showers, to its easily-navigable ramps and footpaths. The great news is that won’t have to trudge far for a cold drink or bite to eat as there are permanent restaurants right on the promenade next to the beach.
    • Back to hotel and overnight stay

    DAY 8
    Fly Back

    • Breakfast at the hotel.
