  • Our tips for Alhambra Palace

    Our tips for Alhambra Palace
    • Last-minute folks could lose out. Alhambra limits its visitor numbers to 6,600 a day. This may seem like a lot, but in summer the crowds add up. Book tickets well in advance to avoid missing out.
    • Arabian nights. One Google search for ‘Alhambra sunset’ and you’ll agree, this palace is particularly beautiful in the evening.. Night tours are offered for the Nazrid complexes of Alhambra only, so if you’d prefer to visit the site in full, be sure to stick around following your day tour to witness this sight in all its glory.
    • Take your time. This grand palace has lots on offer, with formal gardens and exotic palatial interiors decorating the site. Be sure to dedicate a whole day to truly experience the Alhambra in full, it’s worth it.

    Best Time To Visit Jostling with heaving crowds for tickets on a warm summer’s day will take the shine off even the most serene of destinations. If you can, visit Alhambra in the quieter autumn or spring seasons, and aim for an early morning or late afternoon start to avoid peak tourist times.
    Getting There This hilltop palace is quite the walk, but the views at the summit make this well worth the trek. For those less interested in the stroll, buses run regularly from Granada city’s Plaza Isabel la Catlica to the top of Alhambra, while taxi journeys to the palace are also quite cheap, especially if you’re car-pooling.
    Money Saving Tips Advanced bookings are the best asset for those on a budget. Food and beverages are limited to a few options once inside the Alhambra and aren’t exactly budget-friendly, so packing your own lunch is a great way to save on expenses.
