The Full Day Ticket is perfect for exploring the Alhambra. You can get to all areas and the morning appointment for the Nazrid Palace was great. There weren't that many people there. An additional audio guide to explain the complex is a must have. Only costs 6€ extra. Just make sure it's fully charged. Mine was already over before leaving the Alhambra (about 30 minutes beforehand, OK since I've seen everything, but it's still a shame)

Alambra is a “must be visited” kind of place. I don’t think it’s necessary to get a guide as you can find many áudio tour guides online for free, but if you a person who likes having someone explain then you should get a guide. Also, you can buy cheaper tickets than here!! Still, the ticket was okay and I had no problem in access all the places I was allowed to with my ticket!

Excellent way to see the city and you have the option of getting off at the stops where you want to explore a bit more
