Enjoyed Granada very much. Seemed relatively safe. Was warned of pick pockets but never saw this. Just be wary. There were numerous pan handlers especially near the Granada Cathedral, but they are not particularly aggressive. Lots of street dining.

Plan more time in Granada. Book the Alhambra in advance (easy to do online). The lines are well managed, but it is busy even off season.

Make sure to look up parking tips ahead of time if you go. Some roads are restricted to locals in the center of town. We found it best to eat Morrocan
