So you're thinking of a Granada weekend break?:
Granada is Andalusia's second most popular city after Seville. There isn't a huge amount to do, but what you can do is lovely and there are few better ways to spend a weekend break in Spain than in Granada.
The main drawback of a Granada Weekend Break is actually getting there, as there are limited flights to Granada (see below).
For this reason, you may prefer a different Spain Weekend Break and save Granada for a wider trip around Andalusia.
What to do on a Granada Weekend Break:
There are two main attractions in Granada - the Alhambra
fortress and garden complex and the city's famous free tapas
. Then relax away your vino-ed head in one of Granada's numerous Moroccan teahouses.

Granada in a Hurry:
If you only have a weekend in Granada, I would say an Alhambra guided tour is nigh on essential. The line for tickets is fearsome (we're talking hours at peak time) - with a guided tour you jump it and then get shown around by an informed expert.
