Interested in getting to know Cordoba aboard a stylish red bus of two heights? Well, read on and you’ll find all the information.
Currently two tourist routes are available: the Panoramic Route (marked in red) and the Córdoba Íntima Route (marked in blue). The red marked tour consists of 17 stops where you can tour the beautiful Cordoba with a 360o view. The blue tour will take place in a minibus, which will make 10 stops through the historic center of the city.
If you choose to make the first route, you will travel through the most built and central area of Cordoba, and you will be able to know the most inhabited part of the city. This tour offers a very complete “journey”, as it mixes the oldest places, such as the area of the Historic Center and the Jewish Quarter (where you will see the Mosque, the Roman Bridge and other typical monuments) and the most modern part, where we find office buildings, modern dining options, hospital infrastructures, large avenues, etc.
If you are looking for a quieter route and choose the second route, you will know the most intimate area of Cordoba, its Historic Center. Here you will find low-rise houses located in quiet streets, as well as the Town Hall (with its well-known Roman Temple) and the most representative monuments, the Alcázar of the Christian Kings, the Mosque-Cathedral, the Roman Bridge, the Arch of the Bridge…
As mentioned above, the Panoramic Route consists of 17 stops where you can get on and off the bus as many times as you want. It is the most complete tour and will allow you to know the most modern part of the city of Cordoba. The stops included are as follows:

And that is not all, as several guided walking tours are also available: the Axerquía Route and the Jewish Quarter Route, both carried out in English and Spanish for a duration of 60 minutes.
