Things to do nearby the port

We will be arriving in Cartagena by cruise ship mid May and will have about 5 hours in this city. Are there any suggestions for the things to see or do near the port? Historic areas or museums would be of special interest. Also my wife might like to do some shopping.

Thanks, Joe

Near the port you can also take an open top bus for sight seeing trips, which points out all the places of interest.

Is it to far to go from Malaga to Granada (i 1/2 hours each way) when you only have less than a day off a cruise ship or should we enjoy Malaga? Do you recommend the Picasso Museum or other things?

Pauladee:

I would go to Granada only on a tour offered by the ship, because that is the only guarantee you have that you will be brought back to the ship on time before it sails to the next port.

See the Picasso Museum if you like very modern art. Otherwise see the Glass and Crystal Museum, which is housed in an 18th century palace. This is the No. 1 rated attraction in Malaga now. The Carmen Thyssen Museum is also very good.
