Granada Transport
The only real option for getting about Granada is by bus or taxi. Driving is not recommended, as the streets are highly congested and most tourist areas are either very tight or pedestrianised. Several bus routes cover the main areas of the city and run at all hours of the day, while taxis are affordable, congregate at the main tourist hotspots and can also be hailed from any street. Walking seems to be the most popular option for getting about, so long as your hotel is in a touristy area. Visitors planning on seeing the main sights, including the Albaicín and the Alhambra areas, should stick to walking, as much of these areas are pedestrianised and trying to park cars here can be very difficult. If you want to visit areas of greater Granada, making use of buses and taxis is the way to go.
