We visited Alhambra yesterday it was amazing . Having been told I couldn’t get tickets for a few days I secured an English and Spanish tour for the following g day . It was booked for 12.00 but got changed to 4pm which was a Godsend as it’s such a steep hill to walk to get to the ticket office . I’d advise getting a taxi. The tour was by Anna who was nothing short of amazing . He English was excellent and we listened through head phones . Everything she told us was so Interesting and the palace is Incredible. They leave the best till last. It is 3 hours so wear good shoes , take plenty of water And make sure you have eaten before hand.
