Where do you start with the cities of Andalusia, with one more beautiful then the other. Cordoba with its mezquita and Roman bridge is just an hour away and you can spend the whole day just strolling through its ancient streets and marvelling at the inside of the Mesquita. Seville is incredible with a wealth of stunning arquitecture, small cobbled streets, tapas bars and buskers. Malaga is often ignored by tourists but it is well worth a visit, a typical port city with plenty of shops, bars and restaurants as well as a beautiful old town. But my favorite city in all of Spain and one of my favorite in the world is Granada. A city, but with the feel of a village, one day is hardly enough to explore its delights. The Alhambra, of course, is a must see and you should book your tickets well in advance. Then spend the late afternoon and early evening wandering through the streets of the Albaicin and you are transported back to the time when the Moors ruled Spain. End the day at the Mirador San Nicolas watching the sun go down behind the Sierra Nevada and Alhambra and you will not believe your eyes. Some great restaurants, flamenco shows, beautiful walks and ice cream at Los Italianos means you will want to come back again and again.
