Start the day at the Malaga port for a transfer to the mighty Alhambra Palace and Generalife Gardens. Drive through the Andalusian countryside in a new and air-conditioned coach for the two hour transfer. On arrival at the Alhambra you will discover a maze of magnificent halls and intimate courtyards decorated by rows of elegant arches, bubbling fountains and splendidly carved decorations. See the Palace of Charles the 5th, an outstanding example of Spanish Renaissance architecture, and the Alcazaba fortress with its Torre de la Vela tower offering spectacular views of Granada.
Continue the tour with a visit to the Generalife, a royal place of leisure and recreation with beautiful exotic gardens, stunning water features and the lingering aroma of jasmine.
In the afternoon – time permitting only (subject to the circumstances on the day of travel and the docking times of the cruise ship) visit the historical city center of Granada with its enormous Moorish, Christian and Jewish cultural heritage. You will have free time to walk through the medieval Moorish Albaicín neighborhood which leads to the River Darro with great views of the Alhambra across the banks and a maze of tiny streets filled with little Arab shops, restaurants and tea houses. You will have a short time for lunch (extra) and you can explore on your own before heading back to the Malaga port for departure.
