We had a private tour for just the two of us and it was outstanding.We toured twice. Seeing the Alhambra at night is something we will never forget. Everything from the gardens, palace rooms, fountains and history lesson from our guide was practically overwhelming. A perfect day for sure.

Here you can see pieces of the original furniture etc carefully preserved. It doesn't take long to get around and is very interesting.

There is free admission as part of your Alhambra ticket. It is located inside the Charles V Palace. You will see ancient tiles, furniture, pottery and some artwork from the Moors.

We have visited before, but this time wanted to take the children. it is just as scenic and atmospheric as before, although be warned there are a lot of steps for little legs! And probably not particularly wheelchair or pushchair friendly.

This is a must if you go see the Alhambra. The information made the tour of the Alhambra even better because we knew so much about it afterwords. Definitely a must!!

I don't believe my eyes, really awesome structure with almost 1,000 years history behind it. Huge place get lost and puzzled yourself without knowing where you were at, need map to find the washroom. No kidding, you will be lost within 30 minutes.

Recommendation:1. You need 4 hrs.to see Alhambra.2.Better to buy the ticket for Morning hrs because later afternoon you can make trips by bus around the old city and Gipsy area too.3 If you have a ticket for afternoon time frame buy a ticket to Palacios Nazaries for early time. 4. Buy tickets on line and as early as you can.
