The visit begins with a Panoramic Tour looking at the most famous highlights of the city; the Harbour, the Promenade and the neighbour quarters of the 19th Century; the Gibralfaro Castle with its spectacular views overlooking the whole bay of Málaga and even, if the day is clear, the North African coast.

Inside, the main focal point is the Choir-stalls figures (the best in Spain) by Pedro de Mena. 

To continue, a visit to the Malaga Picasso’s Museum, which is becoming the third in the World, after the Paris and Barcelona’s Museums.  The museum’s main area is organised into the Palacio de Buenavista, with 12 exhibition rooms for the permanent collection of Picasso’s paintings.

Option Two / Mijas
This is a short tour, full of Andalusian charm and beauty, taking us a few miles north of Fuengirola to the idyllic village of Mijas. It is a small village with narrows streets, white houses, and friendly people. Ideal places for shopping.

Option Three / Ronda
This spectacular town reached by a tortuous route through rugged gorges, is perched high on a rocky ledge. The old town is divided by a massive gorge and connected by a stone bridge. As well as the Cathedral, you will visit the bullring and the remains of the prehistoric Roman & Arabic cultures that have all left their mark on Ronda.

Ronda is one of Andalucia's loveliest towns, steeped in history. It stands on a towering plateau in the mountains of Malaga Province and is famous throughout Spain for the plunging river gorge which divides the medieval from the 18th century parts of the town. This gorge is known as El Tajo – The Cliff and is spanned by a stone bridge, which once housed a prison. Visitors love to peer down into the gorge, to see the waters of the River Guadalevín. 

Ronda is also famous for its bullring, the oldest, and the most beautiful one in Spain; the arena itself is also the country's largest. When there are no fights, the bullring is open to visitors and has a fascinating museum with many mementos of Spain's most renowned bullfighters.  You can walk from the Plaza de España and the bullring up the Calle Nueva, Ronda's pedestrian shopping district, where some of the shops still retain their traditional appearance and style. 

Lunch in Restaurant Mesón del Escudero.
