Depart from your Granada hotel in a comfortable, air-conditioned coach and relax during the scenic journey to Alhambra’s elevated perch. Ascend the steep La Sabica hill and feel your excitement heighten as you approach the majestic monument; marvel at the distinct architectural tableau and lavish gardens before embarking upon your exploration of the 13th-century fortress.
Sail past the long lines of the crowded entrance hall and follow your guide through opulently decorated rooms. Admire the intricate design of the Nasrid Palaces, palatial structures named after members of the Nasrid dynasty; ascend to the ancient tower at the Alcazaba Fortress and absorb spectacular views of the city of Granada; and enjoy tales of an eccentric emperor as you tour the majestic Palace of Charles V.
Next, venture to the visionary and verdant Generalife Gardens to observe exotic plants and fascinating flowers. Envisage extravagant monarchs relaxing among the botanical beauty of the area and wander leisurely with your informative guide.
After your tour of the palace complex, return to your hotel and enjoy a leisurely few hours and lunch (own expense). At the pre-arranged time, make your own way to Hammam Al Andalus, Granada’s luxurious Arab baths. Submerge yourself in the warm waters of seven pools, all of which are elaborately decorated with colorful tiles. Plunge into icy pools and upgrade to enjoy an indulgent massage sure to soothe aching muscles.
Explore the city independently or return to your hotel after your tranquil experience in the serene spa.
