3. Granada

This is a super fun city in Spain and is a great destination for a city trip. Granada is world famous for the Alhambra, but you can easily entertain yourself for a few days in Granada. Granada certainly knows so much more than just the Alhambra. The city is quite large, but at the same time it is an ideal city to explore on foot. You do not get lost here quickly. The only drawback is that the city is somewhat hilly.

The best things to do in Granada:
• Admire the Alhambra
• Get lost in the Arab neighborhood of Albayzin
• Enjoy the view of the Mirador de San Nicolas square
