I have never visited Mainland Europe before so quite nervous if I am honest as I'm not much of a traveler.
The sort of things that interest us are: Historical/Religious sites/Monuments; Gardens/Scenery; Beaches; spectacular views; Main Shopping areas.
Not interested in Nightclubs/Alcohol/Partying etc! No noisy late nights for us!!
I have made a note of some of the main attractions in both Cordoba & Malaga but I don't understand the geography/logistics of the areas in relation to Airport/Public Transport & Hotels - i.e. the touristy bits. I'm a tourist so I'll try to do what the average tourist does.
1) Which Airport should I be arriving at? Seville or Malaga? Is it easy to travel between Cordoba & Malaga without booking in advance?
2) Which area should I be looking to select for my hotel (so everything is relatively close by or accessed by tram/metro etc)?
3) Transport: Most tourist friendly way to travel from location to location (I really don't like Taxis, always get scammed!)
4) Travel options from Airports - happy to pay to be collected from Airport and be dropped outside hotel (although I like to attempt the return visit on public transport so save money and enjoy the route more)
Many thanks for any advice, tips & guidance you can give me.
