We are driving from Nerja up to Granada to visit Albaicin - what's the best way to do it- parking, bus etc? Any solutions..,
I recommend following the signs to the Alhambra and parking there. You can walk down to Plaza de Santa Ana which is the start of Albaicin. Alternatively you can catch the little red bus that costs 1€. You can walk up to Mirador San Nicolas which has amazing views of the Alhambra but it is up a steep hill with many steps. Again, you can catch another little red bus. Go to the lovegranada website for more info. Hope this helps.
Use the parking in Recogidas street REX. From the Parking it takes 10 minutes to walk to Plaza Nueva where all Albaicin Tours start from. As you come from Nerja take the "Recogidas" Exit and at the round about continue straight up into calle Neptuno, which converts into Calle Recogidas after the traffic lights, it is the easiest parking to reach from the moterway exit. There are parkings too in calle neptuno like the Neptuno shopping center or Arabial Parking, from wich you will have to walk about 20 minutes to Plaza Nueva.
Another least known option is parking in San Juan de Dios and start your Albaicin tour from Triunfo Square. I am a licensed tour guide so do not hesitate to contact me if I can help you with your tour!
Driving is Granada is not recommended. I was there by car last month... Park your car in a public parking (around 18 euros per day, some hotels give discounts) and make sure not drive in Streets, directions or lanes that are only for taxis or busses, or you will risk a fine. Really, driving is dissuaded inside Granada :-) Moreover, the Albaycin neighbourhood is almost car-free, and most streets would be too narrow to drive in anyway. Visit it by foot, the steep small streets ARE the main attraction! :-)
Best solution, driving to Granada center, parkin Acera del Darro and walking to Albayzyn or taxi...
