TKTS to Alhambra and bullfight

Hi All,
Am leaving for Spain this Sunday. Have most of the itinerary mapped out. We will be going to: Seville, Cordoba, Marbella, Granada, possibly Malaga, Madrid and Toledo. I have heard that it's a good idea to buy tkts to Alhambra on the internet before I leave. Is this a good idea or can I wait till I get there? Do they hold the tickets at Alhambra or mail them to me? Since we leave so soon I worry that I may not have enough time. Also, we are thinking of going to a bullfight in Madrid. Should we order tkts in advance and if so how/where? In your opinions, humble or otherwise, is going to a bullfight worth it?

Yes, they will hold tickets purchase on line. However, depending on the seasonyou may end up waiting in line to pick those pre-paid tickets up.

Thanks. I think we will do that. Another question: we will be renting a car and getting maps once we get to Spain. How hard it the driving navigating? Will we be able to find parking in Seville, Cordoba, Granada and Madrid?

We couldn't get tickets in advance, so we showed up to the Alhambra at 8:00 am and waited about 10 minutes in line to get in. This was last September. If you decide to buy once you're there, you'll most likely have to wait, but the amount of time you'll wait will depend on what time of day you go.

Thanks. We are going to try to buy in advance. Is driving from Marbella to Granada going to be a nightmare? How long will it take and is there parking near Alhambra. We are thinking of possibly taking a tour there if we can hook up with one.
