Seville or Granada - ever wondered which city is better? Fortunately, you don't have to wonder any longer! With MrShuttle you can go on holiday to Seville and pay a visit to Granada too. On this full-day trip from Seville, we invite you to take a guided walking tour around Granada and its magnificent UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Alhambra. Are you ready?

Can you do a day trip from Seville to Granada?

Yes, you can! Seville is a beautiful city with plenty of attractions, but there's no reason why you shouldn't visit another stunning city while in Andalusia. Although located in the same province, the two cities offer travellers different experiences. The location of Granada at the foot of the Sierra Nevada mountains makes this a popular skiing and hiking destination with charming views. So, once you've explored Seville, including its impressive cathedral, join our tour to see Granada's own UNESCO World Heritage Site. It takes about 2.5 hours to get from Seville to Granada, so a day trip is definitely doable, and we couldn't recommend it more. Just prepare for an early start and a lot of walking!

A guided tour to Granada with MrShuttle

The city of Granada is located in the south of Spain, which a long time ago was ruled by the Moors and bears many Islamic influences from that time. This is especially noticeable in art and architecture, which gives the Andalusia region such a distinct character. Granada's most recognizable sight, the Alhambra, is one of the best examples of that Moorish style and a must-see for all travellers. In fact, this is one of the most visited monuments in Spain. Not surprisingly, Alhambra will be the main focus of this guided tour, since it's the one place you really cannot miss while in Granada.

The star of all Granada walking tours: Alhambra

Alhambra is a complex consisting of a palace and fortress, but it also encompasses gardens, towers, forts and more. The Islamic decorations and its location against the backdrop of the Sierra Nevada mountains make it a fairytale-like attraction that looks wonderful in every photo. If you're a fan of ornaments and architecture, you'll surely marvel at this masterpiece.

During our walking tour, you'll get to stroll through Alhambra's corners and admire the detailed Islamic art. Your entrance tickets allow you to visit the following places:

  • Alcazaba fortress - the oldest part of Alhambra, which was used mainly for military purposes, although it functioned as a temporal residence before the palace was finished. It has 3 towers: Torre Quebrada, Torre del Homenaje (the highest and offering the best views) and Torre de la Vela (the most recognizable as it has a bell tower).
  • Nasrid Palaces - the mansion of the Nasrid rulers is a highlight for most visitors due to rich decorations. It consists of 3 different parts: the Mexuar, Palace of Comares and Palace of the Lions. It is believed that the Mexuar used to function as a meeting hall. The Palace of Comares was the king's official residence, whereas the Palace of the Lions housed the royals' private rooms.
  • Generalife - this is the sultan's summer palace, which is surrounded by beautiful Generalife gardens.
  • Palace of Charles V - built in renaissance style in the 16th century next to Alhambra for the emperor Charles V. Alhambra was used as a summer residence of the royalty at the time but didn't meet all their comforts and needs, so a new palace was created.

What does MrShuttle's Granada walking tour include?

When you book this walking tour from Seville to Granada, you'll be collected in the morning and transported between the two cities in a comfortable, air-conditioned vehicle. Once in Granada, an official tourist guide will take you on a guided walking tour around the city's biggest attraction - the Alhambra. The entrance fees are already included, so you don't have to wait in a queue to buy them, either. The only thing that is not provided is food. After the walking tour is finished and you've had a healthy dose of Granada, we will drive you back to Seville.
