ALHAMBRA TICKETS: HOW TO BOOK AND SKIP THE LINE

Alhambra tickets.Is it better to book a ticket to visit the Alhambra in Granada or buy the ticket at the entrance?
The answer to this question is to BOOK.

The Alhambra is one of the most important places in Spain and every day thousands of people visit it. Arriving at the entrance without a ticket is a big risk not only because you may have to do a long line, but also because the number of visitors allowed is limited, even though the place is huge, so you may not be able to enter.
For this reason I wrote this post where you will find all the information you need to book the entrance and admire the most spectacular architectural complex in Spain.

Which work of art does come into your mind first if you think of the Uffizi Gallery? Do you think of Botticelli’s Venus or of Michelangelo’s Doni Tondo or a masterpiece by Titian?

I believe that the Uffizi Gallery must be put on the list of the museums you must see at least once in your lifetime, and no trip to Florence is complete without visiting this place which houses works that will make you walk through history of art.

Leonardo da Vinci, Botticelli and Michelangelo are only some of the famous artists whose masterpieces are on display here, but it’s certainly the quantity of stunning works that will enchant any visitor. There’s no other museum like this in the whole world!
That’s why I decided to gather in this post all information about the Uffizi Gallery, in order to give you useful tips if you are going to arrange a visit or to answer some questions everybody asks himself/herself, about the history of the museums and the works you must see.

In this post you’ll find all information about booking your entrance tickets, the history of this museum which is the world’s first public museum, works you must see, and if you can’t find what you’re looking for, ask me a question in the comments (at the end of the post) and I’ll answer.

SAGRADA FAMILIA TICKETS: HOW TO BOOK AND SKIP THE LINE

Sagrada Familia tickets. How to book a visit to the last great architectural project of our time?
Antoni Gaudí’s masterpiece is a must for anyone visiting Barcelona for many reasons:
– the beginning of the work dates back to 1882, when Alfonso XII of Spain reigned, and even today the work is not finished;
– the interior is inspired by nature and the columns look like tree trunks, making this church a fantastic wood and illuminated by colorful stained glass windows;
– Gaudì’s project did not include modern technical solutions, so the Sagrada Familia is also an example of how construction technology has evolved.

To visit the Sagrada Familia I advise you to book tickets in advance to avoid queuing at the entrance, which can last several hours.
In this post you will find all the information to book entry and skip the line.
