Alhambra: An overview
The Alhambra is a massive complex and needs a good day to do it justice. There are many attractions located inside the wall, and once you are inside the only restriction is that you have to visit the Palacios Nazaries at your allotted time. Catering is a little light on the ground inside the complex, there are just a couple of vending machines near the Alcazaba, which only take coins (so remember to change up notes before going in). There are however, plenty of water fountains dotted around the site, so liquid isn't too much of a problem. You can buy tickets on the day (and when I visited in early March there were virtually no queues), but at busy times they sell out fast. There is a strict limit on the number of people allowed into the Palacios Nazaries each day and once the tickets have sold, there are no more. You can book in advance on-line, or you can even book tickets through the cash points of some banks (the bank chain appears to have changed recently, so best to check online in advance). There are also night time slots when you can visit the palaces in a much quieter setting
Charge, it is advisable to purchase tickets in advance either online or through some bank cash machines (check online to see which chain is currently providing this service).
