1. Granada: Full-Day Trip from Seville
Enjoy a comprehensive full-day tour of Granada, including round-trip transfers from Seville, and the option to customize the itinerary to suit your interests. Following a pick-up from your hotel in Seville, drive to Granada at the foothills of the Sierra Nevada. Upon arrival, go to the Albaicín neighborhood for a taste pairing of Andalusian tapas and drinks. With every drink you order, 1 tapa (a generous plate of local food) is served. Your local guide will explain the origin of this tradition. Sample a special dessert from Granada that was originally made for the Pope. Enjoy breathtaking views of the snow-capped Sierra Nevada mountains as you journey through olive groves and vibrant green mountains. Experience the multicultural influences of the city center, rich with the aroma of teas and spices drifting from local houses and markets. Learn the Roman, Muslim, Christian, and Roma history of Granada on storied streets. Marvel at the Gothic façade of the cathedral, surrounded by treasure-filled Arabian markets. Skip the long lines to the Alhambra, and discover one of the most impressive palaces and gardens in Spain. Sometimes referred to as “A Pearl among Emeralds” in reference to the grandeur of its setting and opulence of its architecture, you will be invited to wander the chambers and gardens with an official guide. Uncover the mysteries that lie in every room, and discover more about the Nasrid dynasty. Transfer back to Seville, with the snow-capped Sierra Nevada mountains still in sight. Enjoy the soft mountain breeze to refresh you along the way.
