How to Spend 2 Days in Granada

How to Spend 2 Days in Granada

With surprises around every winding turn, Granada’s narrow streets, lush gardens, and grand historic monuments reverberate with the city's Islamic past and medieval Renaissance. From flamenco in a cave to a sunrise hot-air balloon ride, here are a few ideas for a 2-day itinerary.

Day 1: Spanish Sightseeing

**Morning:**Start early (and beat the afternoon heat, if you’re there in summer) with a guided tour of the Alhambra and Generalife Gardens.

**Afternoon:**After lunch, explore more of Granada while learning about the city’s Islamic and Catholic influences. Stroll through Bib Rambla Square; wander around the Moorish silk market of Alcaicería; and discover the Albaicin, a UNESCO-listed enclave and the historic heart of Granada.

**Night:**In the evening, head to the city center to grab tapas and local wine or beer at one of the many eateries lining Plaza Nueva. Alternatively, catch a flamenco show in one of Sacromonte’s atmospheric caves.

Day 2: Balloons and Baths

**Morning:**Greet the sunrise on a magical hot-air balloon ride—you’ll have a bird’s-eye view of the surrounding Sierra Nevada mountains and city landmarks like the Alhambra. Or, venture out on a day trip to Córdoba, with its Moorish monuments and whitewashed courtyards.

**Afternoon:**If you’re not off in Córdoba, book an appointment at Hammam Al Ándalus for an afternoon of R & R. Choose from a range of services such as exfoliating body scrubs and massages at the serene Arabian spa, and enjoy amenities like the steam room and thermal baths. Alternatively, sign up for a culinary tour, sampling traditional cuisine as you check out more of Granada.

**Night:**Even if you already visited the Alhambra during the day, consider treating yourself to a private evening tour of the complex for a whole new perspective of the magnificent palace. Walk around the illuminated grounds, taking in the twinkling lights of Granada from the hilltop vantage point. Or, return to the Sacromonte caves for a flamenco dance lesson.
