Andalucia

I'm planning to visit Andalusia for two weeks, so far I have Seville, Cordoba and Granada on my list. How many days should one ideally spend in each city? Also, would it make sense to include Malaga or should I just skip it? I'm interested in the classic tourist sights, but also in the night life. My aim for this trip is to eat all the tapas, drink all the wine, and maybe even meet a cool local chick to show me around. Do the dating apps work well there? I'm a bit hampered by the fact that I'm travelling alone so I don't have a crew to roll with. My guess is that this would really help in Spain, so are there some notable party hostels I should stay at? Pub crawls to join? Any tips would be appreciated.

    I did nearly an identical trip to Andalucia last year with my wife so not many tips with dating apps. With that said Granada is a very cool town with a large student population and it had the best value for money with regards to tapas and drinks of anywhere we went. With that said I'd do maybe three days there max and same with Cordoba. Sevilla is worth at least three days and from there you can either shoot down to Cadiz, Malaga, or Jerez de la Frontera for a day or two or go back to Madrid via AVE and enjoy the capital. We did Cadiz mostly for food and historical sightseeing. If you rent a car there are tons of cool little towns in Andalucia to check out and a shit ton of Dolmens if you're into prehistorical stuff.

      I like it. Jerez de la Frontera is exactly the kind of place I look for. I'm planning a trip for next year. What month did you do it? I want to do a spring or fall trip.

      I would have gone this year but the flights to Spain were fricking outrageous from the US. I ended up finding a flight to Croatia for the same price.

      Currently in Spain and thinking about staying here for a couple months. I booked a spot in Cadiz for 3 weeks, I was told it’s a sweet place to chill out and it’s relatively cheap. What was your experience while staying in Cadiz, any other spots you recommend for long term stay?

        Seems like quite a few of the posters here have traveled throughout Spain.

        Any recommendations on where to chill out for a month or two. I enjoy city and beach. I’m not opposed to being more inland, however I prefer the vibe of city life compared to a town.

    Doing pretty much the same trip this month except only 1 week and with a car.

    Here's my ratio: 3 nights Sevilla, 2 nights Granada, 1 night Cordoba, 1 night Ronda on the way back

    If I had another week I'd take a day or two in Malaga and somewhere else and double the nights in the rest.

    Skip Malaga.

    Sevilla, Cordoba,Granada, Nerja (beach), and las Alpujarras. Granada was the best, Sevilla was also nice, Cordoba was good but just 2 days is fine.

    I lived there for almost 20 years. The recession there was really though and I even ended up leaving the country cause there was no fricking job.

    I did a solo trip in Andalucia in Feb/March of this year and rented a car. Didn't do dating apps or anything while there so can't advise about that. My itinerary was as follows:

    >Malaga- 2 nights
    I liked it even though it was very touristy. I'd say I spent a sufficient amount of time there, everything worth seeing is in the compact center.

    >stopped in Antequera to see the castle there, worth it

    >Granada- 3 days
    Great city, lots to see. You should get Alhambra tickets as far in advance as possible, don't be like me, having to go to a 3rd party tour operator for 3x markup on an entry ticket for the following day. Tapas bars are all over the place and inexpensive. One of the days I did a trip out to the Alpujarras, the villages along the south slope of the Sierra Nevada, if you like twisting mountain roads, this is your place.

    >stopped in Jaen to see the castle there, very worth it

    >Cordoba- 3 nights
    Not many big sights, but pretty and atmospheric. The Alcazar wasn't really worth it imo, but the Mezquita was impressive. Lots of narrow alleyways where you can get stuck behind a crowd of a dozen Spanish boomers on a group tour. Spent lots of time sitting around the Plaza de las Tendillas people watching.

    >stopped at Medina Azahara (Moorish palace ruin) and Almodovar del Rio (iconic hilltop castle), both worth it

    >Seville- 3 nights
    Lots to see here and great tapas, probably the highlight of the trip. Make sure to see the ancient Roman ruins (Antiquarium) in the basement underneath the eyesore globohomosexual monstrosity (Setas de Sevilla).

    >stopped at the Italica Roman ruins just out of town, worth it if you really like Roman stuff. And the replicas of the three ships taken by Columbus on his first voyage from the point where he departed in Huelva (Muelle de las Cerabelas), not really worth it imo

      >Faro Portugal- 1 night
      Not worth it imo, only went there so I could say I've been to Portugal. I'm 100% sure there are more worthwhile places to see in the country.

      >Cadiz- 1 night
      Wasn't super impressed, I should've gone to see Jerez instead. Longest continuously-inhabited city in Europe though, so that's neat.

      >stopped at Baelo Claudia Roman ruins, similar to Italica, worth it if you're really into Roman stuff

      >Algeciras- 2 nights
      Don't stay here, it's a city almost completely populated by Moroccan migrants. Stayed here to catch the ferry to Tangier Morocco (which is very worth visiting, real Morocco is much nicer than where their people stay in Europe) Should've stayed in Tarifa instead, there's a ferry there too and it's a much nicer town.

      >stopped in Ronda, very worth seeing

      >Malaga- 1 night
      Stayed here again to catch my flight.

    I'm planning on being in Seville in May 2024. I really would like to see a bull fight. Does they have events every weekend? The schedules I've found online make it seem like it's not every weekend but I'm getting conflicting information.
