Full description
Take a tour which covers a reasonable area of Granada. Your tour begins with a visit to the Royal Chapel, commissioned by the Catholic Monarchs and built in flamboyant Gothic style. Here you will find the mausoleums of Isabel and Ferdinand and their children Phillip "The Beautiful" and Joan "The Mad". The cathedral stands next to the chapel and is considered as the first Renaissance church in Spain. Marvel at the work of the brilliant façade of the Granada Cathedral- the local guide knows a lot about Granada's heritage and will tell you the Cathedral's history and its majestic significance. Your journey will continue to the old Moorish neighbourhood of Albaicín which is a characterful and historic UNESCO World Heritage site. There, you can wander the narrow streets before reaching the Mirador de San Nicolas. From here, you can experience the beauty and stunning views of the Alhambra, Granada and the Sierra Nevada. Experience a special atmosphere, discover the legends and hidden alleys and the typical houses called "Carmen"- rustic houses which preserve an Arabic architecture, surrounded by the fragrance of jasmine and rose. The tour will finish in Granada's historic centre at Plaza Nueva, the Pilar del Toro fountain and Santa Ana church.

Completa

Beh, l'aver scelto questo tour privato (anche se eravamo in 7, come famiglia), è stata veramente una buona idea. Completa, esaustiva e piena di spunti, storici, culturali, di vita vissuta e passata. Come ho scritto dell'Alhambra, la nostra meravigliosa guida, Guillermo, ci ha coinvolti, senza che potessimo annoiarci o distrarci, un attimo. Se venite a Granada e scegliete Granavision, in italiano, Guillermo fa per voi.
