Reasons for trip

The Alhambra dominates the skyline when looking up from the old Arab quarter of the Albayzin, the red walls and turrets suggest impregnability and austerity, once visited you will remember lushness and beauty. However a visit to The Alhambra can be tiring and you need to make the most of your time, so I would suggest that you buy your tickets on the web months ahead of your visit, making sure you add the Nazrid Palace and Generalife (garden). Having arrived in Granada use the card you paid for the tickets with to collect them from cash machines displaying the Caixa symbol. On the day of your visit have on your most comfortable shoes and take a bottle of water or two. To get there bus 30 or 32 can taken from the Plaza Nueva, look forward to being packed in tighter than a sardine and being frequently thrown into contact with your fellow passengers. On arrival you have your tickets and have saved a 60 minute wait in the heat with visitors that may not understand queuing the way you do. Make sure if you have booked the Nazrid Palace that you are in the queue with at least 30 minutes to spare, there is a limited time to see it all. Try to find your way back to the bus stop at the end of your visit, it's a very long way back down if you don't; enjoy.
