08:00 hrs. - Madrid – departure. We travel to the South. We stop at Puerto Lápice , a beautiful town of La Mancha plain evoking the figure of Don Quixote de la Mancha.
13:45 hrs. - GRANADA – Arrival at the hotel. Lunch included . For those who booked the trip with the entrance included, after lunch we will visit with a local guide the immense Alhambra Palace and its beautiful Generalife gardens, built in Arab times.

Return to hotel. Tonight you have the option to attend a flamenco dance show and the traditional neighbourhood of Sacramonte.
IMPORTANT NOTE: The maximum number of people allowed to visit the Alhambra is limited by the local government. Given that the number of tickets assigned to tour operators is small, and we are only given the confirmed number one month before your arrival, even if you buy the trip with the ticket included we cannot guarantee entrance to the Alhambra. In such event, we would offer entry to the Reales Alcázares in Seville, which is similar. As with the Alhambra visit, the group would be led by a local guide of the city of Granada. If the Alhambra is a very important landmark to visit for you, we suggest you purchase the trip “without tickets” (the lowest price) and book your tickets on-line on the heritage website https://www.alhambra.org as there is a larger quota for individual visits/purchases.
