On a 2½-hour drive to Granada, your guide will introduce you to local traditions and history.

Granada itself is a beautiful city, but nothing in all of Spain compares to the wealth of architectural art to be found in the city's Muslim-Hispano complex -- the 14th-century Alhambra. This breathtaking example of Muslim architecture is surrounded by walls and towers, and inside you will find palaces, military buildings, a fortress and an administrative center. Explore this remarkable structure whose detailed mosaics, prism-style cupolas and stone-cast latticework offer a surprising grace and sophistication. During your visit, you will see the Nazrid Palace, the Generalife summer residence, and the gardens.

Lunch is included.

Notes:

Travel time to Granada is approximately 2½ hours each way, with (time permitting) a brief restroom stop en route. The Alhambra is not accessible to wheelchairs or walkers. No more than 30 guests are allowed inside at any one time -- there may be a delay. The assigned entrance time to the Nazrid Palace dictates your itinerary and the time taken for lunch. Tickets for this tour are allocated approximately four months prior to the call at Málaga. The number of tickets available is limited; please waitlist everyone in your party as early as possible for the best chance of confirmation.
