A great city sightseeing location: Granada is a great long weekend location and is perfect for those who love food, wine, sightseeing, trying out their Spanish language skills and just generally exploring a small, charming city. The Albaicin is an ideal location for those who appreciate Moorish architecture, and who want to have peace and quiet but still be in the city. Local bars and restaurants offer excellent free tapas and excellent local dishes, while there is a regular market where you can buy locally sourced fruit and vegetables and provisions. You are minutes away from the local bus service which will take you into the centre or directly to the Alhambra Palace for your visit there. We provide a meet and great service from a Granada local, plus a comprehensive information pack on the best places to eat, shop, sightsee and relax. Winter visits - take a bus to the Sierra Nevada:you will be in the ski resort in only 45 minutes and can enjoy a wide range of snow activities even if you don't want to ski. Ask us for more details.
The Alhambra and other attractions: No trip to Granada is complete without at least one visit to the Alhambra, whether you visit during the day or by night. Booking tickets is easy and quick in a variety of ways which we can help you with. Don't forget that Granada is full of interesting architecture and churches, quirky little venues and lesser-known attractions which sometimes get overlooked. For those interested in architecture, painting or photography we can point you in the right direction and give you up-to-date information on things to see.
Activities : Apart from sightseeing, Granada is a food and drink lovers' paradise. There is an abundance of bars offering all kinds of (free) tapas and local dishes, from student haunts and old charming bodegas, to sophisticated modern restaurants. Shopping is good for local crafts including leather goods, etchings and ceramics and all things Moroccan in the Caldederia area off Plaza Nueva. Granada is also good for the Spanish clothing chains Zara, Mango and Cortefiel and great for shoes, bags and accessories. For pampering, a must to try is the Moorish baths (hammam) for a relaxing soak and a massage. Children will enjoy the Science Park and the Granada Eye, which is the local 'camera obscura' of Granada, providing panoramic views over the city. For longer extended stays, and for those with a car, a great selection of day trips are possible from outwith the city.
