Accommodation / Re: 3 months in Granada with a family
« Last post by granadagirl on June 27, 2016, 03:43:59 AM »
There is a house in el Fargue which may be suitable.

It is not right in the centre but there is a bus into town every hour.
It is very easy to get into the Cartuja University Campus in a car via a shortcut past the Astromomy faculty.
There is a restaurant very near which has always has free parking.

There is a lot of outside space where the children can play.

There is more information here.

I am coming to Granada in September.
My husband has a collaboratational project at the University at the faculty of Farmacy.
I have 2 childern under 4 years old.

I am looking for a comfortable house with wifi with a good kitchen.
It does not have to be right in the centre.
I prefer somewhere quiet.
It would be nice to have a place to park the car.

Can anyone recommend anything?

Eating in Granada / Where to eat on a 3 night trip to Granada
« Last post by Doss on January 29, 2016, 11:37:50 AM »
I am going to stay 3 nights in Granada.
Can you recommend and good places to have breakfast and to eat out.
There are 3 choices

1. Get a guided Tour:

Getting Alhambra tickets is a complicated process with a lot to understand. If you don't want to have all the hassle of understanding about the tickets and what the Nasrid Palaces are and when to get in the queue and where to go then you can take the easy route and just get a guided tour. Someone else will take all the pain away. There are no decisions to make. This is by far the most expensive.

There are 2 guided tour links here

2. Get the tickets on ticketmaster.

Get them as far in advance as possible. You may have to spend 15 - 20 minutes on internet buying the tickets and understanding the implications. About 60% of posts on this forum are about buying tickets to the Alhambra.

This is much cheaper and is better if you like making your own decisions and don't like spending too much money.

This site has very informative info about the choices

3. Get the tickets on ticketmaster but get an audio guide

BE CAREFUL - The audio guide has been suspended we don't know if it is coming back.

You can hire a little mp3 player with a commentary to give you more info.

What to do in Granada / What is best a guided tour of the Alhambra or go alone?
« Last post by Ashley on November 26, 2015, 11:12:11 AM »
I am  very confused with all the possibilities of visiting the Alhambra.

There are guided tours with several different companies and buying tickets with ticketmaster seems complicated.
What should I do?
