Day 2

Mijas area - Ronda - Seville.

After breakfast, sit back as you journey by coach deep through rolling hills into rugged Ronda, a dramatically scenic town that will take your breath away. Straddling the high, narrow El Tajo gorge that divides it in two, honey-stoned Ronda demands attention; with a palace that was once home to King Ferdinand and classic Moorish alleyways and cobbled streets, much of Ronda's magic lies in unforgettable views and authentic Spanish living. On a short walking tour, admire some of Ronda's highlights such as Puente Nuevo, the splendid 18th century high arched bridge that connects the main square to the Plaza de Toros bullring. Later, continue your journey to Seville, Andalucia's regional capital. On the way enjoy the scenic drive through the typical white-washed villages and picturesque countryside. Tonight, perhaps enjoy one of the flamenco shows that the city is so famous for.

Day 3

Seville

Steeped in history, this orange-scented city and its residents are known for their love of life, food and flamenco. With an abundance of parks and the River Guadalquivir running through the centre of the town, Seville is a unique destination, even for Spain. The discovery of the New World had a big impact on the old world, and Seville saw the most of that, with new buildings popping up all over town; Christopher Columbus is even buried in Seville's Cathedral to reinforce the town's magnitude. The town has changed little since the Moor's construction of the palace of Alcazar, leaving behind a legacy of tiny, narrow streets and cool squares allowing relief from the sun in the summer. Don't forget, flamenco was born here too, a testament to the lust for life in Seville. After a sightseeing tour, enjoy the rest of the day at leisure. Head for Barrio Santa Cruz, the former Jewish quarter, to experience its charming lanes, little-painted houses and flower-draped balconies, or take time out in a friendly tapas bar.

Day 6

Granada

Set beneath the snow-tipped Sierra Nevada Mountains, Granada is Spain's most captivating city, known for being home to the Alhambra, an overwhelming Moorish fortress-palace on a hilltop guarding the city. Your guided tour of Granada includes the delights of Alhambra, including the Nasrid Palaces with the Court of Lions, the Alcazaba and more. For many, this will be their favourite moment from the tour. As you absorb views from the terraces and towers, and meander around the serene patios and pools of the Generalife Gardens. Later today, you will have time to discover the rest of the city. You may want to explore its chic shopping plazas and old Moorish quarter with winding passages, picturesque houses and medieval churches. Much of the city has remained untouched for centuries, giving you an authentic step back in time.
