Hullo! Need some advice! We are going for 5 days and have to be in Marbella for 2 days. Then we would like to go to Granada especially to see the Alhambra /Cordoba and Ronda. Would you advise us to stay in Marbella for the full 5 days and make days trips to those places? Alternatively should we make either Granada/Cordoba/ or Ronda our base for the next 3 days and travel to see the other locations? Have we packed in too much? If so what would you recommend Cordoba or Ronda if time is limited? Is there any other locations that we must see? I am not sure about the distance between the locations. Is it easy to drive or would you advise a tour group see these places? If so any tour group recommendations? I do not want to be in a car with a grumpy hubby as he would be doing the driving! Thank you!

Assuming you are flying into and out of Malaga, bus Granada to Malaga www.alsa.es

Leave Cordoba for another visit to Andalucía and Sevilla

Should mention, Tapas are served complimentary in Granada with cocktails

I agree with Nurioopta, at least one night in Ronda, then train to Granada for 2 nights.

Granada bars all serve free Tapas with any drink not just cocktails.
