granada /malaga/cordoba trip

Jump to last reply

We have managed to get tickets to the Alahambra this Thursday morning so are doing another one of our last minute trips. This time 2 nights Granada, 2 nights Malaga and 1night Cordoba. I received so much good advice here for my last trip to Seville (which was wonderful!) and wondering if there are any tips for this adventure.

We have restrictions in terms of accommodations (travelling with a dog, a car, four people) so I was unable to book any of the ones recommended on previous posts. For Granada, we have booked an apartment (el almez - on san juan los reyes in albycin) and for Malaga looking at the Ibis on Pasillo Giumbarda. Is that a good choice? For Cordoba the Maestre Hostal on Romero Barras.

I have some Malaga restaurants marked from previous reports/posts from kimhe:
(( El Tapeo de Cervantes, seafood tapas at La Campana in Calle Granada, 35 or traditional Cortijo de Pepe in Plaza la Merced)). For Granada I think we will wander about for tapas. If there is a standout dinner place in walking distance we might splurge but we tend to like casual good food. For Cordoba maybe Taberna Salinas and again, tapas places. Would love to get a good salad somewhere!

We have a 10am time for entry to the Nasrid Palace. From what I can gather we can stay on as long as we like. I could not find anything to contradict this on the official website however an article on Tripadvisor says you only get to stay past 2pm if you enter after 11:30. To be safe we will go early. Also there is now a free mobile phone guided tour - does anyone know if this would replace and/or be better than the audio guide?

Apart from a comprehensive visit to the Alahambra, experiencing the Hammam, strolling the Albaicin neighbourhood, trying tapas, shopping, etc. what would you suggest we visit? My two teens might have Cathedral overload. We will have a total of 2 days. In Malaga we plan to visit the Picasso museum for sure as well as stroll about and if the weather's good walk by the sea.
In Cordoba, I have downloaded the 'what's open when' guide and hope between Sunday and Monday to get to the Mesquita and the Synagogue and then wander about. There is a more expensive evening tour of the Mesquita - anyone done it?

Sorry for so many questions! As always, I really appreciate the help, especially if there is a must-see that I have missed. I will be going through my guide books again but the tips are often more up-to-date and useful.
