In Granada you can take the taxi in the many stops that there are in the city or directly if it is free and circulating by stopping it by hand. In the monumental precinct there are two taxi stops:

Next to the Palace of Carlos V the stop is called "los palos"
Next to the ticket offices of the Alhambra the stop is called "the wicker"

The stop next to the ticket offices of the Alhambra "the wicker" is located a few meters from the meeting point of our guided tour.

In public bus

The urban bus line that will take you to the Alhambra is the C30. Its main stop is at Plaza Isabel la catholic and it reaches the stop next to the Alhambra ticket offices, right next to the meeting point of our guided tour. There is a bus every 4-5 minutes, but being small buses fill up immediately so we advise you to go with enough time.

The Alhambra is located in the heart of the city of Granada, but at the top of the hill of the Sabica. The distance from the center is only 1 kilometer, but the difference is important. The easiest and most direct climb is from Plaza Nueva through Cuesta Gomerez. This walk will allow you to enjoy the Bosque de la Alhambra, see the Puerta de las Granadas or the Puerta de Bib-Rambla.
