Our tips for Granada

  • Book tickets to Alhambra early. For those looking to take the Granada day tour to Alhambra Palace, you should note that the site limits its visitor numbers to 6,600 a day. This may seem like a lot, but tourist rush in summer is heavy. Book tickets well in advance to avoid missing out.
  • Did someone say free tapas? Yes, it’s true. Most bars will bring a side of tapas to the table alongside your drinks order. Be sure to chow down because tapas in the city is known for being spectacularly good.
  • Bring your walking shoes. Narrow roads and steep stairwells mean this city is best explored on foot. Ditch the gabs and discover plenty of local gems on your self-guided strolls.
