If you’ve booked on line, it is best to avoid any hassle by collecting your tickets the evening before from the farthest away gate (and be sure to bring your passports). The security man will allow you past the strap barrier to the ticket counter....More

This palace is worth a visit. Buy tickets ahead of time and plan on few hours. Afterwards, we walked into the town and spent a happy afternoon winding around charming streets, shopping, taking in the scenery and views of the palace from below.

We had a tour guide which made the visit much more enjoyable and informative. The Palaces are incredible and there is so much to see that our 3 hour tour flew by! Mercedes, our guide , was extremely knowledgeable - we learnt so much!
