The south of Spain is a world unto itself: alpine mountains to fertile plains, farmhouse days to flamenco nights. Andalusia is about savoring two millennia's worth of rich culture and architecture, and feasting on local produce, wine and sherries. A walk down the streets of Seville is the best kind of history lesson. Add that to Granada, a fairytale-like place of minarets, flowing fountains and garden-shrouded villas, and you have the makings of an enviable Spanish experience.
Explore deep in the Andalusian countryside, lemon groves perfuming the air outside rustic farmhouses. Prepare a country-style feast or wander the back streets of Seville on a tapeo (tapas crawl) experiencing what the Andalusians call alegría: an explosion of food, wine, laughter and joy. Explore the halls of the mighty Alhambra, beguiled by its fairytale pavilions. Sample the freshest regional delicacies in the most lush countryside settings.
From a romantic getaway, to a group of wine enthusiasts, to people looking for the most flavorful Andalusian delicacies, trip is made to be savored by all.
May and September are ideal times to visit for the weather and minimal crowds. April, June and early October still have pleasant weather and opportunities to avoid the mid-summer crush.
More time exploring local wineries or meeting with local farmers and producers, or explore farther afield in Barcelona, Madrid and beyond.
Spend time along the coast or dive more deeply into Seville, Granada or Cordoba.
