Full description
The iconic Alhambra, standing on a hill overlooking the city and valley of Granada and boasting the finest palaces and aromatic gardens, has drawn visitors from around the world for centuries.

On a 3-hour skip-the-line private tour you and your family and friends will discover the best representations of the artistic and cultural representations of Al-Andalus.

UNESCO declared the Alhambra a World Heritage Site in 1984 and on this tour you’ll have access to the 3 main areas of the site.

The Alcazaba was the military fortress where soldiers of the Nasrid royal family used to live.

The Nasrid Palaces, where the royal family lived, are the most popular areas of the monument. See the Court of the Myrtles, Comares Palace and the Lyons Court, noted for its surprising and delicate architecture.

The third main area is the Generalife, with its beautiful and evocative gardens and its summer residence for the royal family, on the upper part of the hill.
