Southern Spanish fly drive taking in the famous sites of Seville, Vejer and Ronda
Start your trip in the beautiful city of Seville. For a truly Andalucían experience, Seville is a must. Boasting some of the best tapas bars, restaurants, and nightlife and the most stylish people, its narrow, winding streets nestled with hidden plazas are excellent to explore by foot. We recommend 3 nights here to explore Andalucía’s capital. Wander the narrow medieval streets, take in a flamenco show, learn about the city’s architectural legacy or simply relax and enjoy a beer and some tapas!
From Seville, drive south, stopping in Jerez for lunch before reaching Vejer. This Moorish hill town is an ideal base to reach the long stretches of sandy beaches on the nearby Costa de la Luz. A world away from the commercial tourism of the Costa del Sol, Vejer has a haunting charm and will capture your heart a soon as you arrive.
Head east in the car towards Ronda and its famous gorge. Rising up amid dark mountains, much of the attraction of the area is the breath-taking views and great position for walking. We suggest a 3 night stay, enough time to visit the national parks and do some walking and exploring the surrounding Pueblo Blanco towns of the area. Sacrificing none of its traditional Andalucían charm the town has many interesting museums to visit, but if you’d prefer to soak up Ronda’s rich cultural heritage, a trip to the south side of the bridge will bring you to La Ciudad an old Moorish town where you can wander around ancient streets and take in the incredible scenic vistas.
