Tour description provided by Viator

Take a trip to the beautiful city of Granada and the Alhambra Palace, one of the most beautiful architectural marvels in the world, on a day trip from Costa del Sol. Granada is home to the Alhambra, of exquisite Moorish architecture, and to another of Spain's well-known UNESCO World Heritage Sites, like the Generalife Gardens. Visit these wonders on a day trip while you learn interesting details about Granada's history and architecture from your local guide.

Meet your local guide in Costa del Sol and relax in a comfortable coach on the drive to Granada, a must-visit city in Andalucia. On the way, enjoy a short stop at Riofrio, a small village with beautiful green landscape.

When you arrive in Granada take a guided tour of the Moorish palace Alhambra, located in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountain range. The Alhambra palace complex, a UNESCO World Heritate Site, is one of the most beautiful examples of Islamic architecture in the world and has become a symbol of the city of Granada.

Next, visit to Charles V Palace and the Generalife Gardens, located near the Alhambra. Explore the beautiful gardens, and enjoy the wonderful views of the city and the Albaycin's Gypsy quarter.

Continue to the center of Granada with your local guide and have free time to enjoy a delicious Spanish lunch at a local restaurant (own expense). Then, you have more time to explore Granada at your own pace, before you relax in your comfortable vehicle on the drive back to Costa del Sol.

Advance bookings are strongly recommended, as access to the Alhambra is strictly limited to a certain number of visitors each day.
