Storslåede haver, fæstninger og paladser samlet på ét sted. Kom I god tid - det kan være lidt svært at finde. Dog stor parkeringsplans. Køb rundtur med guide - så får man langt mere ud af det - og springer køerne over. En rundtur tager ca 3 timer. Vi var afsted sidst i Oktober og temperaturen var kun 14°C kl 10.30, hvor vi startede ud. Så medbring også lidt varmt tøj udenfor sommeren (hvor det til gengæld kan være ret varmt 40-45°C. Gå ned til Granada efterfølgende - vær dog opmærksom på, at turen tilbage er "meget opad", så bær ikke på for meget. Tag evt bus eller taxa op til Alhambra / parkeringsområdet. Mvh

I still had doubts whether this would really work until - I got into the Alhambra without any problems whatsoever. It was a short term decision one night before my visit and it worked perfectly. Great experience and thumbs up!

Sergio from My Top Tour was amazing! He was very knowledgeable and led the group at the perfect pace. I would definitely go back and do it all again!

Alhambra is amazing! One of the most interesting travel experience I had! Andy, our tour guide was also amazing! Thank you :-)

We were with Hanna an amazing guide. Amena, didactic and dynamic. I would repeat with her without hesitation
