Malaga is located in Southern Spain, within a region known as the Costa del Sol (Coast of the Sun). So as you might imagine, the area plays host to beautiful Mediterranean weather year-round. In order to best appreciate this, consider striking out on foot to get your bearings. A good hop-on hop-off tour can help get you oriented without breaking the bank (or killing your feet), but bike taxis are definitely high culture right now. There’s nothing like riding in a 21st Century bike-cum-taxicab while stealing down the cobbled alleyways of old-town and having the popular sites pointed out to you by a knowledgeable local guide.
With a city as old as Malaga, it’s easy to experience the history of a place in a unique way. Consider starting your day with the Museo del Vidrio y Cristal de Malaga (Museum of Glass and Crystal), where you’ll learn the grand history of Malaga through the art its produced.
