I have tried twice ( in 20 years) to get into this palace without success so we decided to use the guided tour option. It cost approximately £100 for the two of us but it was truly the best way of doing it.
My husband had visited the palace 4 times previously without a guide but admitted this was much better. Carlos our guide was relaxed and informative throughout. The audio commentary was marvellous, although the ear piece did hurt so take your own if you have them!
This place is well worth every penny, the architecture, the history and the gardens are truly awe inspiring.
We walked for over 3 hours and yet it simply flew by.
Get your camera charged- the views, the buildings, the decorative tiles, plaster work and the gardens are truly amazing. You really do need to book in advance.
