Taking the bus and walking are the two best methods of sightseeing in Granada. Near the centre of town, streets are wider and easier to navigate. There are plenty of buses and taxis.

Up on the cobblestone paths of Albaicin and Sacromonte, you will thank yourself for wearing a pair of good walking shoes!
