My husband and I have been entranced by the Alhambra for many years. It wasn't until we started to plan our trip to Spain that we really understood the Alhambra Complex - Nasrid Palace, Carlos V, Alcazaba and Generalife. Words cannot describe the beauty and majesty of the place. We did a nighttime visit to the Nasrid Palace, and then daytime visits to Nasrid Palace, Charles V, Alcazaba and Generalife. You may have to get creative to find tickets (even further than 30 days in advance). Check the Doble de Oro and Granada Card options if it looks like tickets are sold out. Much of the area and the Carlos V Palace is free. The museum inside Carlos V, and the special exhibits are quite nice and the acoustics from the center of Carlos V are perfect. Would highly recommend that if you have time, spend more than a few hours to explore - there is much to see and its easy to miss if you are in a hurry. We did not use a guide, but had no problem figuring out where we were nor did we have to hurry along. Once you are in the ticketed areas you can stay as long as you want, but make sure you are in line for your time window. We stayed just down the hill from the complex, but it is quite a hill. Save your legs for exploring and take a taxi or the bus up/down the hill. I am sure we will return.
