Be sure and walk through the Generalife, definitely worth walking over to once you are in the Alhambra.

Within 3 hours, our guide took us through the Alhambra and Generalife. The tours and History go well together.

Make the extra effort to climb to the main entrance of the Alhambra and start here. We didn’t but we think the audio guide, which is excellent and good value, would have made a bit more sense. Beautiful gardens with excellent views of the palace....More

You can pay only for the Gardens, but the whole ticket (around 15€) include the gardens, the Nasrid Palaces (Palacios Nazaríes) and the Generalife, too. It is really worthwhile.
