This Spanish city on the Costa Blanca often gets overlooked as just the 'place where the airport is', however there's a lot more to Alicante than meets the eye. Dig a little deeper and you'll find a beautiful, vibrant city just crying out to be explored.
Overlooked by its castle, Alicante has a pretty Old Town, a bustling shopping area and a busy harbour. With a lively bar scene, it's positively buzzing at the weekends, with locals partying until dawn.
This is a city that deserves to be visited in its own right and not just by tourists passing through. It makes a great weekend city break destination and of course you can't miss the fiestas here, Alicante certainly knows how to celebrate.
