Moorish Andalucia lends itself perfectly for those looking to do a self drive or rail itinerary over a week, 10 days or 2 weeks. The scenery is stunning with rolling hills, olive groves, orchards, farms and white washed villages dotted along the route and the region also happens to benefit from the most sunshine and warmest climate throughout Spain (and most of Europe) making a road trip ideal at any time of year, particularly Spring and Autumn when temperatures are warm with little rain and sightseeing is leisurely without the intense heat.
The main cities offer history, architecture and nightlife mixed with shopping, scenic photo opportunities and amazing food and wine but Andalucia also offers the ideal holiday for the more active with trails for walkers and hikers, the “via verde” for cyclists and excellent wine tasting tours too.
The area has an abundance to offer regardless of your interest or passion, even if that just includes eating great tapas and sipping sangria!
