Granada city, in Southern Spain, is an incredible place to see on its own, however, be sure to make time to include some day trips from Granada by car. The historic city is surrounded by plenty of nature and enjoyable Spain day trips to Seville, Sierra Nevada, Cordoba and more. Before you hop on a Granada tour bus to another amazing destination, make sure to visit the Alhambra first.  

Tickets for the Granada Alhambra tour are hard to come by and require a long wait. When you go, be sure to have your skip-the-line pass so you can take a tour of the surrounding Walls and the Towers. Day trips from Granada Spain by bus will save you time and money. And if that is not enough, Granada Spain tours will fill you in on all its amazing history.

Malaga is a perfect beach city day trip. Enjoy the sights from Alcazaba, or taste the wine and fried fish on one of the boardwalk restaurants. Book a day tour and explore the museums, go tapas tasting (here’s your guide to traditional Spanish tapas) or bask in the panoramic views over the city.
