Nasrid Palaces at 10.30am -- where would you start your day?

Jump to last reply

Greetings!

I have the 10.30am Nasrid Palaces slot for October 3 (which I will print out at the Corall del Carbon the day before the visit). Now I am trying to figure the best way of covering the complex. Where would you start and where would you finish?

Other variable in the equation are :
☆  09.00h depart to Alhambra from NH Hotel Victoria by taxi.
☆  ca. 13.30h Lunch at the Parador restaurant
☆  15.45-18.00h Hammam Al Andalus

Initially, I was hoping for 11.30h Nasrid slot (unfortunately, it was sold out). I was planning to start at the Generalife gardens. Would you still start there or would you start at the Alcazaba with the 10.30 ticket?

09.15 -10.30h Generalife Gardens
ca. 10.45h Enter Nasrid Palace (must enter by 11.00h)
10.45-12.00h Nasrid Palaces
12.00-12.30h Partal Gardens
12.30h - till lunch Alcazaba
13.30h Lunch at the Parador

☆ OR
09.15-10.00h Alcazaba
10.00-10.30h Carlos V (w/ or without museum?)
10.30-11.30h Nasrid Palaces
11.30-12.00h Partal Gardens
12.15-13.15h Generalife Gardens
13.30-Lunch at the Parador

I've seen comments that that Alcazaba requires around 20-30min. So it seems that with the second option, we are stuck in that area from 9.15(ish) to the time we can enter the Nasrid Palaces. Is it a bit wasteful? I know that we could visit Carlos V but I understand that it's not the main highlight of the Alhambra complex.
