Travel Thursday: Malaga
Along Costa del Sol in Spain’s southern region, you will find Málaga, the perfect beach vacation destination, but also the home of Pablo Picasso and Antonio Banderas!
Rent a bike
The best way to see Málaga is by bike! There are tours on bike and on segways you can book – a fun and little different way to explore. Taking one of the tours on a first day can open your horizon to places you haven’t heard of yet and you’ll have time to go back.
There are many good museums and a lot of good art in this city. Here are a few: The Cac, Museo Ruso / The Russian Museum and while you’re close to the Russian Museum stop by the Automobile Museum.
