Granada Itinerary

Jump to last reply

I'd like to start by thanking everyone who has helped me out with the Seville portion of our itinerary. I've gotten some really great advice and I really appreciate it, thank you thank you thank you! :)

Monday October 10th: depart Seville on the 10am bus (which is listed as a supra economy and is much more expensive than the other time slots, for some reason?). Arrive Granada at 1pm in the afternoon, check into hotel (Shine Albayzin). Lunch somewhere, pick up Alhambra tickets at the Corral de Carbon location. Do the RS Granada Old Town walk and visit the Royal Chapel and Cathedral if they're open by then. Check out Casa de Zafra and ruins of Hammam El Banuelo, and make our way up into the Albayzin. Take in views of the Alhambra from San Nicolas and eat dinner with a view from one of the restaurants on the hill. Flamenco this evening, not sure if we should try one of the caves in Sacromonte for the atmosphere or if we should go somewhere else?

October 11th: This ends up being a big Alhambra day. Tickets are on sale now so I'm wanting to pounce once I get advice. Thinking we'd enter through the Justice Gate with a later morning timeslot for the Nasrid palace, maybe 10:30 or so, so we can sleep in just a little bit and not be too rushed. I'm also thinking of buying an afternoon ticket for the Generalife gardens so again, we can take our time and go at our own pace. I definitely would like to stop and smell the proverbial roses this day and take in all that the Alhambra has to offer. After we get done with our daytime visit, I'd like to go take in an spa experience at the Hammam Al Andalus. Culinary exploration via tapas after the baths, followed with the 10:00 Alhambra night visit.

October 12th: Start the day with a 9:30am Olive Oil Tour. Get back to our hotel around 1-1:30, grab our luggage, and head to the train station for a 2:45 departure to Madrid. I'd prefer to take a taxi to the train station but we may need to walk if traffic is busy because of the holiday? Is an 1hr to 1.5hrs enough time to grab luggage, get to the train station and get on a train?

Thanks again!
