Customer Travel Tip: If you want to see Alhambra buy tickets few months before. If you dont have tickets and still wont to see this place go there at 6 am or even before. Find queue to the ticket machines. it is not the main queue. It is a bit on the side. you can pay there only by card but it is a good chance that you manage to buy a ticket.

Liked: The Alhambra is amazing.

Disliked: It is beautiful city and so many to see.

Customer Travel Tip: Take a room almost any room close to the old city and find a small bar called The Loop San Matteos street you get a tapas with each drink in this quirky bar that doubles up as a vinyl record shop. A really cool place, near the town hall.

Liked: What is there not to like? Spectacular scenary good bars and food outlets to suit all budgets. Accomodation right on the doorstep to the old city.

Disliked: You have to book Alhambra tickets in advance if you do not want to take an organised tour. Ticketmaster apparently, and expensive too.
