The entire tour takes about 4 - 5 hours (e.g., the entire Alhambra complex) and entails a great deal of walking and climbing steps. The gardens of the Generalife are beautiful with many photographic moments. Well worth the inclusion of this tour....we did the Alhambra in the morning and the Generalife in the afternoon.

We visited here as part of the visit to the Alhambra, these gardens are over varying different levels and you could spend hours here just admiring the views/plants/structure of the area. There are water fountains so take a bottle to refill if its hot. We spent around and hour here as we had tickets to the Alhambra as the site... More

The gardens are precious, very pretty and tidy. The view to the rest of the palace is nice and you can enjoy the flowers and fresh water all around.

One of the best part of our Alhambra visit - more vegetation, beautiful colors, overall exceptional experience. If you buy general admision ticket to Alhambra, this is also included (along with the Carols V museum where you have two things - the Belle Arts museum - mainly paintings, and the Alhambra museum where they preserve art objects from the palace).

For one ticket you are visiting Palacios Nazaries and Generalife. Take care that you must have almost whole day for both. It will not be wasting time. Buy ticket online few weeks before trip.

Cottage of the Nasrid sultans, the Generalife isn't part of the Alhambra, but it's within walking distance and admission is included. Suprised by the beauty of its gardens and fountains (certainly the best), specially the ladder of water.

a modern reproduction of a century old wonder. after the Alhambra, do people not notice they have entered the 21st century all of the sudden? a very loose interpretation of what it must have one time been like

Very nice gardens and and fountains - some amazing views across the city. Lots of places to sit, relax and watch the world go by if you have the time.

A nice side-attraction for those who completed the Alhambra or the main show for those (like us) who didn't get to see the palaces. This is a beautiful place on its own right, with enchanted gardens and great views. Entry is included in the general Alhambra tickets.
