Málaga City Break

An ancient city on the Mediterranean Sea.

Visit Málaga, an ancient city on the Mediterranean Sea. After its founding by the Phoenicians, Málaga passed into the hands of the Romans, the Visigoths, the Byzantines, the Moors, and then the Christians after the Reconquista. Traces of these cultures remain in the art, monuments, architecture, and cuisine of the city, making Málaga a sort of living history museum. 

Day 1
Settle and tapas!
Arrive in town and check into your hotel. Meet your guide for the weekend, and head out for an evening of tapas and wine in the historic quarter. Make sure to try some cold ajoblanco, a garlicky precursor to gazpacho before tomatoes were introduced into Europe.

Day 2
Culture and Picasso
Take a cultural and historic walking tour with a local guide. Visit the Picasso museum, dedicated to Málaga’s most famous native son, and take a stroll through the Parque de la Alameda, which boasts an incredible collection of native and exotic flora. Pass through the ancient Moorish arched doorway to the Atarazanas market to get a glimpse of the produce, meats, cheeses, and fish of the region.

Day 3
Pueblo and Farewell
Enjoy your last morning in a low-key style, heading out to a seaside pueblo west of Málaga for an open-air paella lunch before heading off to the airport.
