In order to follow this Itinerary, you will have to land at Seville Airport also known as Sevilla-San Pablo Airport. It is the sixth biggest Airport in Spain and offers many international destinations, so it is a perfect way to start your road trip for 14 days in Andalusia.

Depending on the arrival time, I suggest you head straight from the airport to your first destination, which will be Cordova. Of course, if you arrive late at night, you can use the chance to spend a night in Seville, but we will keep it for the end of this trip.

Another optional arrival is Málaga-Costa del Sol Airport. You will have to split this itinerary and start from day 4, but you can still follow this plan and organize your trip from Malaga.

In order to follow this Itinerary, you will need to rent a car. It is possible to visit Andalusia by train, but you will miss out on a lot of gems. So if you want to discover the soul of Andalusia in 14 days, a car rental is a must.

I always use Rentalcars which is an international online car booking service.

Driving time: 1 hour and 25 minutes, 137 kilometers.

Your road trip of 14 days in Andalusia starts with landing in Seville. But from there I want you to head directly to Cordoba. Don’t worry, you will have time to visit Seville at the end of the road trip. I suggest you take A-4, stay on the motorway for 130 kilometers, and enjoy the views from your window.

Cordoba is one of the best towns in Andalusia and here you will find the perfect mix of Arab and Spanish art. Discover the best things to do in Cordoba and unlock the charm of this charming Spanish town. Remember, if you arrive in the afternoon at Corboda, you can just visit the Old Town and keep other activities for the day after.

Visiting old town

The old town of Cordoba is a real gem of Andalusia and you shouldn’t miss it during your trip. Get lost and discover some of the best places in Cordoba’s old town. Start with the Calleja de las Flores, a picturesque alley with pots full of flowers hanging on the walls, and end with Plaza de la Corredera, which is a square built on the model of the traditional Castilian Plaza Mayor. The Jewish district of Cordoba is a nice attraction filled with cute patios and history. Don’t forget to add Córdoba Synagogue to your itinerary as well.

Roman Bridge of Cordoba

Overview of your 14 days in Andalusia

This historical landmark of Andalusia was built back in the 1st century BC. Roman Bridge of Cordoba stands over the Guadalquivir river just in front of the famous Mosque-Cathedral of Cordoba. The bridge takes you from the Old Town to The Calahorra tower and it is a perfect place for an evening stroll.

Mosque-Cathedral of Cordoba

This mosque is another important symbol of Arab influence in Andalusia. It is one of the most beautiful places in Andalusia and you shouldn’t miss it during your time in Cordoba.

Alcazar of the Christian Monarchs

Overview of your 14 days in Andalusia

Alcazar of the Christian Monarchs is another important tourist attraction in Cordoba. In the past, it served as a palace and a fortress. Nowadays, you can visit the castle and enjoy the spacious gardens with fountains, which was my favorite part of the visit. Keep in mind, that it is closed on Monday, so plan accordingly and book your ticket here. You will find the opening times there as well.

Other things to know before visiting Cordova

Where to eat in Cordova? If you like typical Spanish cuisine and want to try some local things, head to Taberna Casa Pedro Ximénez or Paseo Iberico. If you prefer fine dining, Noor Restaurant should be your number one choice.

Overview of your 14 days in Andalusia

Driving time: from Corboda to Jaén 1 hour and 26 minutes, 120 kilometers, and from Jaén to Granda 50 minutes, 86 kilometers.

On your second day in Cordoba, you can finish up your Itinerary and visit the places that you missed on the first day. Once you are done, you will head to Jaén for a short stop and possible meal and then head to the next destination of your 14 days in Andalusia, which is Granada. I recommend you take roads A-4 and A-311 from Granada to Jaén, especially if you are visiting during the peak season.

Jaén

Overview of your 14 days in Andalusia

Imagine stunning castles with unique fortresses surrounded by charming olive gardens. That is Jaén and that is the main reason why you should make a quick stop in this hidden gem of Andalusia. It is not needed to spend a night here, but I highly recommend arriving here around lunchtime.

The main attraction of Jaén is Jaén Cathedral. The entrance fee is 5 euros, but it is worth visiting. Around the central part, you will find many historical churches, Arab baths, and the Jewish Quarter. I suggest you visit Calle Duque for an amazing view of the Cathedral, on Google Maps you will find it as Mirador a la Catedral.

Where to eat in Jaén? Bomborombillos is one of the best restaurants in Jaén and it offers a wide variety of tapas for very affordable prices and some unique Spanish dishes as well. Don’t miss it!

Granada

Granada

Granada is a famous medieval city and that is your next destination after visiting Jaén. Considering its size, I recommend you spend 2 nights here, to visit the most beautiful places in Granada. Also, depending on your arrival, you can use your first evening to relax or enjoy a simple stroll around the city and keep all the activities for the day after.

More things to know before visiting Granada

Where to eat in Granada? If you are looking for some traditional places, I can recommend these 3 restaurants: La Taberna de Kafka, Bar Avila, and El Mercader. La Taberna de Kafka is a very affordable restaurant, but if you are looking for something fancy, don’t miss Faralá.

Where to stay in Granada for 2 days? If you are looking for a mid-range apartment with available parking in the city’s heart, I recommend Elvira Suites. But if you are looking for a splurge, you can’t go wrong with La Corrala del Realejo.

Day 3: Granada

Granada

On your day 3, you can finally rest from driving and discover Granada on your feet. You also won’t be changing hotels, so you can take it slow, enjoy your breakfast, and start your day exploring. Don’t forget to check the previous section for restaurant recommendations and make your reservation in advance. So what are the best things to do in Granda? 

Alhambra

Granada

Alhambra is another palace combined with a fortress and one of the most beautiful places that I have ever seen. It is the main attraction of Granada and it cannot be missed during your two weeks in Andalusia.

Keep in mind that the number of daily tickets is limited, so I highly suggest buying your ticket before, especially if you are visiting Andalusia during the peak season. To visit Nasrid Palaces, you will have to book a specific time slot and you will have to be there at your scheduled time. Click here to see the opening times.

A general adult ticket will cost you 14 euros and you can purchase your tickets here. I don’t advise using any third-party sellers unless you want to overpay. You will need to show your ID once you enter, so don’t forget to take it with you.

The entire visit will take you around 3 hours, so the best is to start at the opening time and plan your lunch after visiting Alhambra.

The old town of Granada

Granada

After lunch, you can enjoy a nice stroll around Granada’s old town, also known as Albaicin. Get lost in tiny medieval streets and visit its jewels. You cannot miss Granada Cathedral, Corral del Carbón, Palacio de la Madraza, Plaza Bib Rambla, Plaza Nueva, Real Chancillería. You should finish your visit with Alcaicería, a modern-day bazaar, and get some souvenirs there. It can be a bit of an overwhelming experience, but that is the charming side of every bazaar.

You can easily spend a couple of hours in the old town of Granada because you will constantly find new attractions, cute squares, and historical landmarks. If you are feeling tired, I suggest visiting Cathedral and bazaar as these are the best places to see in Granda Old Town.

Nerja

Day 4: From Granada to Malaga through Nerja and Frigiliana

Nerja is a resort town and has one of the best beaches in Andalusia. Here you will find the Balcony of Europe that offers some amazing views over the sea, but your main focus is going to be beach time. Playa Burriana is the longest sand beach in Nerja and it is completely free unless you want to rent a bed with an umbrella. Prices are very affordable and start from 5 euros. Playa la Caletilla will be a better option for you if you are looking for something intimate.

Looking for something active instead? Head for a hike to Rio Chillar and discover the hidden gem of Andalusia. Keep in mind, that it is a long and challenging hike. Most of the hike is inside the river, so you will need to wear trainers. Make sure you bring water and some snacks as well. It takes 1 hour to reach the most beautiful part of the hike and 2 more hours to see the waterfall, then another 3 hours to go back. It is open any time of the day all year round and free of charge.

Frigiliana

Day 4: From Granada to Malaga through Nerja and Frigiliana

If you like small charming towns, Frigiliana will be one of the best attractions in Andalusia for you. It is a maze of cobblestone streets, color-coordinated white houses, and colorful plant pots all over the town. Wandering around the streets of Frigiliana is one of the best things to do in Andalusia. And you will be there snapping cute photos on every corner.

Some of the main attractions in Frigiliana include: El Torreón, Panorámica Frigiliana, Church Square. Centro Histórico de Frigiliana is where you should start your exploration. Also, you will find a lot of steep streets, so bring comfortable shoes with you.

I personally couldn’t find inspiring restaurants in Nerja, so I waited until Frigiliana to get some food and La Taberna del Sacristán didn’t disappoint. The food is delicious, the prices are affordable and they have a nice terrace with some amazing views.

Malaga

Day 4: From Granada to Malaga through Nerja and Frigiliana

Once you are done with Nerja and Frigiliana, it is time to head to Malaga where you will be staying for the next 2 days. Take it easy on the first day and enjoy some walks around Malaga, but keep exploring for the day after. We will cover the most beautiful places in Malaga and the best things to do, including more beach time or hiking options for activity lovers.

Other things to know before visiting Malaga

Where to eat in Malaga? Malaga is a paradise for every foodie because the options are endless. Darna Restaurant is one of my favorite restaurants; it offers fine dining and healthy local meals. If you are looking for the best tapas in Malaga, don’t miss Anyway WineBar. Other great restaurants with local cuisine include La Proa de Teatinos, La Alacena de Francis, and Meson Iberico. Luxalad Málaga Centro is the best choice if you are looking for healthy meals and affordable prices.

Where to stay in Malaga for 2 days? During my last trip, I stayed at ICON Malabar. It was a wonderful and very relaxing experience. For a 4-star hotel, the prices are very affordable but keep in mind that parking will cost you additional 17 euros per day. But I have to say that I have my eyes on Palacio Solecio, a Small Luxury Hotel of the World for my next trip.

Day 5: Malaga + best hikes & beaches

Day 5: Malaga + best hikes & beaches

Just like in Granada, you will spend an additional day in Malaga and discover what are the most beautiful places in Malaga. I will include one of the best hikes in Spain located near Malaga, some more beaches for those who enjoy swimming, and more authentic experiences in Andalusia to make your experience unforgettable. Most of these things are optional, so it is up to you to decide what excites you the most.

What to see in Malaga?

Day 5: Malaga + best hikes & beaches

One of the main attractions of Malaga is Gibralfaro Castle. Unfortunately, you won’t find much inside this ancient castle, but the views from the top are epic. You can visit it together with The Alcazaba of Malaga – another place you should see in Malaga. The combined ticket is 5.50 euros and it should keep you busy for a couple of hours. It opens at 9 am, so I just you head there for the opening time.

Malaga Roman theater is an important historical attraction just around the corner from previous places to see in Malaga. And it is free of charge, so don’t miss it. The Cathedral of Málaga is another place that attracts tourists. I also recommend you visit Atarazanas Market and La Concepción Historical Botanical Gardens.

Best hiking near Malaga – El Caminito del Rey

Day 5: Malaga + best hikes & beaches

One hour drive away from Malaga, you will find one of the most beautiful hikes in Andalusia. El Caminito del Rey is almost 8 kilometers long and it takes around 4 hours to go from the beginning until the end.

It used to be a very dangerous hike, but nowadays, it has been rebuilt, so it is a relatively easy hike, but not suitable for someone who is scared of heights. You will need to bring your own water and some light snacks. And bring

The path starts at the Guadalhorce dam and ends at El Chorro. From El Chorro you will find a shuttle bus that takes you back to Guadalhorce dam, so you can reach your car unless you want to walk the same path once again. It is open from 9 am and the entrance fee is 10 euros.

You can also book a guided tour at El Caminito del Rey. It is perfect for you if you want to learn about the history behind this place and want to avoid any organization side of the hike. The entrance ticket is included together with a shuttle bus, parking, and one bottle of water. You can book your tour here.

Best beaches in Malaga

Day 5: Malaga + best hikes & beaches

The most popular beach in Malaga is Playa De La Malagueta. It is easy to reach, wide and alive. Comes with a crowd as well. I personally prefer Playa Peñón Del Cuervo. It is still crowded, but not filled with tourists, so mostly busy during the weekend. It is also a very pretty beach with a unique rock in the middle, but you will have to take the car to reach it. The good news is that the parking is free.

Want to spend some time on the boat? Explore the coastline on your own boat for a couple of hours and become the captain of the day. Click here to see all the details.

Day 6: From Malaga to Marbella through Colomares Monument and Mijas

Driving time: from Malaga to Colomares Monument 40 minutes, 30 kilometers, from Colomares Monument to Mijas 15 minutes, 88 kilometers, and from Mijas to Marbella 30 minutes, 35 kilometers.

Colomares Monument 

Day 6: From Malaga to Marbella through Colomares Monument and Mijas

Colomares Monument is a stunning castle a hidden gem of Andalusia. It was one of the places that I wanted to visit the most, so I don’t understand how so many people still miss it. It was dedicated to the life and adventures of Christopher Columbus and it is a true architectural treasure.

It is closed on Mondays and opens at 10 am, so I suggest you leave Malaga around 9.30 am. There is no need to rush because it doesn’t get as crowded as many other tourist attractions in Andalusia. But don’t forget that it is closed on Mondays.

The adult ticket is only 3 euros. I have never been to such a beautiful castle for such an affordable price. This should make you understand how hidden it is. Audio guide included.

Mijas Pueblo

Day 6: From Malaga to Marbella through Colomares Monument and Mijas

Mijas is another cute village in Andalusia filled with white houses. Yet it is different from Frigiliana, so you cannot exclude it from your road trip itinerary for Andalusia. Wondering what to see in Mijas Pueblo? 

You don’t want to miss Plaza Virgen de la Peña, Ermita de la Virgen de la Peña and Pl. de la Constitución. But other than that, enjoy your walk between tiny white houses, look for some cute souvenir shops and enjoy the views this town offers. And don’t forget to snap some cool photos on your way, because every corner of Mijas is very picturesque!

Where to eat in Mijas Pueblo? If you are visiting Mijas around lunchtime, you will find many inviting restaurants, so use this chance to try some more authentic Spanish food. We choose Koco Bistro and it lived up to our expectations.

Marbella

Day 6: From Malaga to Marbella through Colomares Monument and Mijas

Marbella is great for 2 things – beach and old town. The old town was my personal highlight and I suggest you head for a walk and get lost. It is filled with typical Spanish houses, flowers, plants, and cute cafes, and I am sure that you will leave charmed by it. So depending on your arrival, you can enjoy yourself at the hotel or head to discover the old town of Marbella. You can add Marbella Urban Wall, Plaza de los Naranjos and Iglesia de Nuestra Señora de la Encarnación to your Marbella itinerary.

Other things to know before visiting Marbella

Where to eat in Marbella? We enjoyed one of the best tapas at Mia Cafe. This place is in the old town and is perfect for a quick bite. Especially if you are looking for a cute cafe with a nice atmosphere and authentic food.

Where to stay in Marbella? If you are looking for an affordable yet luxurious hotel in Marbella, Molo Luxury Suites Puerto Banus is the right choice for you. Keep in mind, that it is not in the center of Marbella, so you will have to take the car to visit the old town, however, parking is for free and the views are spectacular. And you have an access to the outdoor pool in case you want to take a break from the beaches. Looking for something mid-range in the old town of Marbella? Precioso apt en casco antiguo de Marbella is a great option as well.

Day 7: From Marbella to Ronda through Júzcar

Day 7: From Marbella to Ronda through Júzcar

Driving time: from Marbella to Júzcar 1 hour, 55 kilometers, and from Júzcar to Ronda 35 minutes, 24 kilometers.

If you still didn’t get enough beach time, you can use your morning for a quick swim or a tanning session. And then get ready to hit the road to discover one of the most epic places in Andalusia – Ronda. On your way, you can discover another cute town of Andalusia to take a break or have a quick bite.

Júzcar

Day 7: From Marbella to Ronda through Júzcar

Júzcar is also known as a Smurf town. Unlike other famous towns in Andalusia, this one is filled with blue houses and that is where the name comes from. Surprisingly, it is another hidden gem of Andalusia, so that is an additional reason to visit Júzcar.

Back in 2011, every single building here was painted blue: houses, the Church, the cemetery, and the Town Hall, to embrace the premiere of the world-renowned film The Smurfs 3D. Once the filming passed, the locals decided to embrace it and keep the houses blue. This decision brought some additional income to local inhabitants and more visitors to the town.

And if you want to have lunch in one of the blue houses, head to Bar Torricheli. It is a very simple place with simple food, but great for a quick lunch and some healthy meals.

Ronda

Day 7: From Marbella to Ronda through Júzcar

You can’t visit Andalusia and skip Ronda. Ronda is a must in every road trip itinerary for Andalusia, so this is going to be your next destination and base for 2 days.

Puente Nuevo de Ronda is the main attraction in Ronda and you will have to find some best viewpoints to capture the beauty of it. You will need to put Mirador Puente Nuevo de Ronda as your destination on Google Maps and head to Plaza de Maria Auxiliadora and from there you will see a path that takes you down. It is an easy path, but you will have to be careful. I did it with sandals, but some comfortable shoes would make my life much easier.

You should visit Ronda Town Hall, Plaza del Socorro, Puerta de Almocabar, and Bullring of the Royal Cavalry of Ronda. But you should be able to see it all in one afternoon. I suggest you keep the viewpoint for the sunset and visit other attractions before that.

Other things to know before visiting Ronda

Where to eat in Ronda? Tropicana is one of the best restaurants in Ronda together with Puerta Grande. Puerta Grande has a simple setting and authentic recipes, while Tropicana offers a modern setting and some great vegan options. Prices are very similar in both of these places.

Where to stay in Ronda for 2 days? Catalonia Ronda is hands down the best hotel in Ronda. Especially if you are looking for epic views and swimming pool access. Hotel Don Miguel is a great option for budget travelers. Both of these hotels offer parking for additional 15 euros per day.

Day 8: Additional night in Ronda: visit Setenil de la Bodegas and Olvera

Day 8: Additional night in Ronda: visit Setenil de la Bodegas and Olvera

Driving time: from Ronda to Setenil de la Bodegas 25 minutes, 17 kilometers, from Setenil de la Bodegas to Olvera 23 minutes, 15 kilometers, from Olvera back to Ronda 45 minutes, 52 kilometers.

On the 8th day of your Andalusia road trip, you will keep Ronda as your base but drive around to discover other important attractions around. If you are passionate about history, add Ruins of Acinipo to your itinerary. Or implement hiking at Sierra de Grazalema in case you haven’t yet gotten enough. 

Setenil de la Bodegas

Day 8: Additional night in Ronda: visit Setenil de la Bodegas and Olvera

Setenil de la Bodegas is a charming Spanish town built inside the cliff. The houses and some streets are covered with cliffs, making it one of the most unique places in Europe.

You should discover these rock-covered streets, find some of the best views, visit some of the churches on your way and enjoy some more tapas. In one hour, you can visit the town, but you will need to plan some additional time for eating depending on your arrival time.

Bonus tip: make a quick stop at the Santuario de Nuestra Señora de los Remedios before arriving in Olvera.

Olvera

Day 8: Additional night in Ronda: visit Setenil de la Bodegas and Olvera

One of the best things about Olvera is the views that you get to see on your arrival. It is often overlooked by tourists since they rather visit Ronda or Setenil de la Bodegas, so this is your chance to discover another hidden gem of Andalusia.

The Church of Nuestra Señora de la Encarnacion stands on the top of the town and pops out perfectly over the white town. Climb all the way up to this church and walk Calle Calzada to find some of the best photo spots in Olvera. The castle of Olvera offers even better views over the city and the entrance fee is 2 euros.

There are a lot of affordable restaurants in Olvera. I can recommend Bodeguita Mi Pueblo, but I saw some other great options in Olvera as well. Once you are done with Olvera, head back to Ronda, enjoy a relaxing evening by the pool, or soak in more of those views over the bridge.

Day 9: from Ronda to Cadiz through Arcos de la Frontera 

Day 9: from Ronda to Cadiz through Arcos de la Frontera 

Driving time: from Ronda to Arcos de la Frontera 1 hour 10 minutes, 86 kilometers, and from Arcos de la Frontera to Cadiz 40 minutes, 65 kilometers.

Your next destination is Cadiz, however, the road from Ronda to Cadiz is long and not very exciting. For this reason, I suggest you make a break in the middle and stop at the Arcos de la Frontera. This is optional, but I think this little town deserves a visit, and let’s find out why.

Arcos de la Frontera

Day 9: from Ronda to Cadiz through Arcos de la Frontera 

Arcos de la Frontera is built on top of the cliff and together with a river creates a wonderful landscape. One of the coolest places in Arcos de la Frontera is Basilica de Santa María de la Asunción together with Mirador de Abades and Palacio del Mayorazgo.

Mirador Plaza del Cabildo is my personal highlight as from this side you can see the massive cliff and take some great photos. After some research, I decided to have lunch at the Restaurante Aljibe and it didn’t disappoint. In fact, it is hands down one of the best restaurants in Andalusia.

Cadiz

Cadiz

Cádiz is an ancient port city rich in remarkable sights and surrounded by picturesque towns, wild landscapes, and wonderful beaches. I personally fell in love with Cadiz and it was one of my personal highlights of the entire trip.

Day 10: from Cadiz to Seville through Jerez

Seville

Driving time: from Cadiz to Jerez 28 minutes, 35 kilometers, and from Jerez to Seville 1 hour, 92 kilometers.

Considering that you spent the entire afternoon in Cadiz, make sure you check off the last things from your Cadiz bucket list and head to Jerez. It is going to be a quick stop before heading back to Seville.

Jerez

Jerez

Jerez is the most popular day trip from Cadiz and soon you will understand why. The cathedral is the main Christian symbol of the city and it’s a real baroque-neoclassic gem that you can’t miss. The old town of Jerez is surrounded by walls and has many relevant religious and civil buildings like Centro Andaluz De Flamenco Junta De Andalucía. This is the perfect spot to get in touch with the art of Flamenco and the famous wine Sherry.

Seville

Seville

Seville is the capital and largest city of Andalusia and it is the fourth largest city in Spain. Seville is famous for the Flamenco, the beautiful Plaza de Espana, the third biggest cathedral in the world, and the Arab influence in buildings like Alcazar.

This is going to be your base for the next 3 days, so make sure you check this 3-day itinerary for Seville that covers everything including main attractions, hidden gems, travel tips, hotels, and restaurants.

Day 11-14: Seville

Seville

Once again, the Seville guide will help you plan your time in the capital of Andalusia, but keep in mind that this is optional. If you have only 10 days in Andalusia, you can keep Seville for another trip. Also, I recommend you return your car rental because you won’t need the car to discover Seville, so you will just end up paying an additional fee for parking and the car rental itself.

After 2 weeks in Andalusia, we can agree that you have seen it all covered all the best things to do in Andalusia. I can guarantee that you will end up loving this area of Spain and create some amazing memories.

Is Andalusia safe?

Is Andalusia safe?

Andalusia is very safe, so this shouldn’t be your concern during this road trip. You will have to be more careful in big cities like Seville, Marbella, and Malaga, but nothing extreme. Small towns of Andalusia are extremely safe and local hospitality is amazing. Probably another thing that will make your trip unforgettable.

What to pack for 14 days in Andalusia?

What to pack for 14 days in Andalusia?

I want to say that Andalusia is a perfect reason to dress up and bring some cute dresses. If you are visiting in summer, keep in mind that it is very hot, so I suggest light material flowy dresses. You can also go crazy with prints and blend in with the local architecture.

Together with dresses, you will need some comfortable shoes, shorts, and swimsuits. A summer hat is another must! If you have limited luggage, you can buy cute hats in every town of Andalusia… find something that goes with your dresses.

Bring a rain jacket if you are visiting during the shoulder season. Or extra layers for winter.

What is the travel budget for 2 weeks in Andalusia?

What is the travel budget for 2 weeks in Andalusia?
  • Accommodation: from 50 to 200 euros depending on the season and level of comfort for 2 people. More for luxury hotels and unique accommodations.

    Every part of this guide looks incredible. From the architecture to the beautiful landscapes it seems like all 14 days would be a fantastic experience. I love the idea of doing food tours to see more of the city. The museums would be fun to visit too. Thanks so much for sharing this experience. I would love to travel it one day.

  4. Wow, wow, wow, Lasma! This truly looks like a perfect itinerary. My husband and I have been wanting to go back to Spain to explore the Andalusia area. We have only been to Seville from amongst the towns in that region. Cordoba and Granada both look amazing. I love that Roman bridge! The hike near Malaga looks fun too. Definitely pinned for when we schedule the trip. Thanks.
