You can take the bus up to Plaza de San Nicolas and from there you get a fantastic view of Alhambra. I would recommend you walk down as there are lovely views on the way down and then you walk along the river

During the day or night this is the best view. At night you will be joined by many others including people selling their jewelry around the edge of the plaza.

We went in the morning to avoid the heat, but sunset views are best. Enjoy the walk up through the old quarter.

Great views of Alhambra - can be crowded at sunset. It's a tough hike up the hills and can be a bit challenging to zero in on it. Consider a nearby cafe or bar terrace for a respite while enjoying the views.

The plaza offers a very nice view of the alhambra, the mountains and the city. We paid E2 each to climb the church bell tower which enhanced the view.

The main attraction of this church is the fantastic views of the Alhambra palace from the courtyard. It's easy to get there from Granada town by the local C1, C2 or C3 buses. It'll cost you 1.4 euro per ride.
