The Alhambra is definitely worth a visit. However the purchase of tickets and ticket type differences are quite tricky to sort through. If you want to see everything for the best price then book on the official website and buy a ticket for the palace - about €14 and a general entry ticket which covers the Alcazaba and the Generalife gardens for €7. Guided tours can cost €90-€200-300. Some of those tours looked as if they were escorting many many people and I’m not sure there is much benefit in joining one of those.

Try to book tickets on internet before. You will safe time...
You need to walk a lot to join La Alhambra. Perhaps a good idea is taxi or bus... Finally we have ticket. As they explained us we have 1 hour to go around the gardens and after that we can go in the palace. Unfortunately there is an other big queue in front the palace. Finally in the palace. There are some very impressive rooms. After the palace free again in the gardens. A nice view from the tower to the Granada around. Generally it was nice similar to the other Arabian palaces. I don't think I would wait again all these time to see it ...

The palace is of course 5 star, however, the organisation around tickets, what they are for & how you enter the grounds/palace are woefully lacking. If you persevere, you can get sensible priced tickets via the web ie €15 without having to commit to a tour (a familiar trick to up sell the price). Signage is also tremendously poor. We bought our tickets online & didn’t understand where to go. We asked at our hotel, a local tourist guide( who we had paid for a different tour) + 2 other officials at the palace before we got the actual answer! If you have timed tickets, allow plenty of time to sort this out!

We went to the Nasrid palace, Generalife, and Alcazaba. Those seem like the core must see places for any visit. Doing a guided tour was nice as we could go right in and they took care of the timing for the Nasrid palace. Our tour provider was granavision and they were just ok. I would suggest trying another.
