Full description
Discover Granada at your own pace with a full-day ticket to the exclusive hop-on hop-off train. Specially designed to navigate the narrow streets of the Albaicín, the train features a panoramic roof, open deck in summer, and on board audio guides in 12 languages, available at an extra cost (with 2 special kids channels in Spanish and English).

You can hop on and off at any of the stops to experience the essence of the city, from the monumental Alhambra to the atmospheric Albaicín. Explore the Realejo district, stop for a coffee in Plaza Neuva, get city views from the Mirador de San Nicolas, and much more. Get on and off the train as often as you want for as long as your ticket is valid, and discover the city's most important sites.

As an option, choose a tour including a visit to the Bullring of Granada (Plaza De Toros De Granada). The visit starts at the gallery where you’ll find authentic posters and historical tickets, real bulls’ heads, unpublished pictures, and a documentary of Granada’s bullfighting history. See a shop window dedicated to the grandiose bullfighter, David “El Fandi” Fandila. 

Walk through el callejón, the corridor around the arena offering a panoramic view of the bullring. The next stop will be the horse yard where you’ll discover the stables where horses rest and are prepared before the bullfight, and el guadarnés where the equipment used by the horses is kept. 

One of the most important parts of the visit will be the chapel where you’ll find the patrones of Granada Nrta. Sra. De las Angustias, followed by the surgery room with original instruments and furniture. Last but not least, see the toriles, a place reserved exclusively for the bulls.

The Alhambra Route runs during the day, while the City Center Route is an evening train that takes in Granada’s great nighttime atmosphere.

Great experience! Road the train the entire trip first go round then got off and on at desired points. It needs to be a better system for those getting back on versus those who are getting tickets. Was trying to get back on but there was a long line of customers paying to get on. Showed driver receipt but was told to get in line. It was so many people in line I was worried if there would be room by the time he got to me.

Easy, convenient, great way to get a feel for the city prior to tourin

We bought the ticket one day early online. It was easy and cheap ($12 Euro for one day, two people (one senior). When we arrived in Granada we easiliy found the nearest stop of the train. The first one was full, so we waited for the next (maybe 5 minutes) and that one had plenty of room. We first toured the whole route then got off at Alhambra. For the rest of the day we got on and off shopping or touring and then getting back on. We never waited more than 10 minutes and every train had plenty of space after that first one. Yes it's bumpy - yes it's noisy - if you want an airconditioned rubber ride then get an expensive tour. It was very convenient, the map was excellent and the drivers were polite and patient. As always, a little Spanish is very helpful.

Fun way to see the main points of Granada but the train didn't head all the way down into the city center towards the river, which we had to see later on foot. I recommend walking down Calle Acera del Dario, then through Plaza Bibataubin (Calle de la Virgen) which leads you to Plaza del Humiladero. We didn't listen to the audio tour because they charge you an additional 1 euro to buy the earphones.
