26.02.2018 /1: Tourists in Málaga

The Red Bus (C) Two Queens Travel Blog 2018

So, what to do on your first full day in a new city? Do as the tourists do – go sightseeing! Our accommodation assistant (the person who did our check-in) gave us tips about the sightseeing opportunities and today we chose to use the Red Bus sightseeing as we have done those tours previously.

Besides, in Málaga, they have a 29€/person package that gives you free entrances to several museums, and a possibility to see a flamenco show!

The nearest Red Bus stop to our pad would be near the yesterday’s dinner place, so off we go! Whilst heading to the bus stop, we see the fantastic architecture of the city (honestly, I would have thought that a modern city would have gotten rid of the “things of the past”) and lots of empty streets.

The thing I love about being a tourist in a city is the possibility of taking photos and soaking in the atmosphere that you don’t tend to notice when you are actually living there. Maybe that is why we take our own sweet time to walk and enjoy the slower, holiday, pace.

As it is not just the Red Bus tour we are after today, it is a pleasant surprise when we arrive to the bus stop – the Castillo de Gibralfaro, which is something we are looking forward to visit, can already be seen in the distance!

Again, taking the Red Bus tour is a good way to get around the city, as there are several stops where you can hop off and then, later on, hop on another one of the buses again when you are ready to continue with the tour.

As the stops are planned in places that are “must see” for tourists, this is one of the best ways to get to see the mandatory sights even if you are here just for a short holiday.

And finally we arrive to the stop which we have waited for – the Castillo de Gibralfaro, for which we did a separate entry combined with the Alcazaba as both of them are definitely two of the sights that everyone needs to see when in Málaga and if you are at all interested in history.
