Hey everyone, are you ready for the summer?
Travel2study family has great news for you!
Thanks to our new collaboration, you can enjoy summer in one of the best cities on this planet –
Malaga. (For more info visit: http://www.travel2study.eu/?page_id=136) Not only does Malaga
have to offer you its magnificent old city center but also thanks to its amazing location, you can
reach heaven-like beaches in less than 20 minutes. As we did in our first blog, we will try to give
you some tips about where to go in and around Malaga.
Fancy a drink? Let’s go to our favorite Bodega (wine cellar in Spanish) in Malaga. Bodega
Antigua Casa Guardia is an authentic wine bar in the center of Malaga. It was established in
1840 – as you can see from the date, it’s a typical historic Malaga style wine bar. Besides the
amazing wine and ambience, we also like its system of taking orders. As you can see from the
picture below, they write all the orders on the bar (yes, they use bar as a blackboard!) with chalk,
and when you want to pay, you already have the check, no need to say ‘La cuenta por favor!’
(Check please in Spanish). You should definitely go there and taste the delicious wine selection
they have in store for you.

We already had our aperativo at Bodega Antigua Casa Guardia, now we are ready for some
food. In the historical center, you can find thousands of tapas bars with reasonable prices. Trust
us, you will be pleasantly shocked when you see the prices! Feel free to discover any one of the
tapas bars, but our favorite is La Plaza. Located at the same street where Pablo Picasso was born,
La Plaza is a much sought after terrace on the famous Plaza de la Merced square facing
Malaga’s 16th century Huelva cathedral. La Plaza’s interior is equally appealing, offering a
combination of modern elegance and cozy tradition. A wide variety of tapas are on tap all day
and night, while the dinner menu offers a myriad of freshly prepared international dishes from
Europe, Asia and North Africa ranging from Moroccan lamb to Greek spinach burgers. As for
desserts, don’t miss the chance to try heavenly chocolate truffle cake with caramelized oranges.

Okay, we are stuffed now and we want to relax a little bit. What about going to the beach? La
Malagueta, which is the main beach in the city center, is an excellent option if you feel lazy and
want to relax for a while. However, if you want to discover surroundings of Malaga and the
amazing Costa del Sol and you’re looking for somewhere elegant, we suggest you should go to
Puerta Banus. Puerto José Banús, more commonly known as Puerto Banús is a marina located
in the area of Nueva Andalucía, to the southwest of Marbella, Spain on the Costa del Sol. It is
one of the largest entertainment centers in the Costa del Sol, with 5 million visitors annually, and
it is also popular with international celebrities. Developed around a coastal village in the
Mediterranean architectural style, Puerto Banús contains expensive shopping malls, restaurants
and bars around the marina. It is only 60 kms away from center of Malaga.
We’ve given you just a sneak-peak of Malaga; it has a lot more to offer! We leave it to you to
decide whether you wish to discover this amazing city. Travel2study offers you great prices so
