City of Sun
As Valencia’s second largest city and one of the most well-known along the Costa Blanca, Alicante has an enchanting atmosphere that blends rich history with animated beach life. Inhabited for over 7,000 years, the city draws visitors year-round to see its many historical structures, which represent the influences of several different cultures, like the Gothic Santa María church built atop an Arab mosque. Renowned for its warm Mediterranean weather and golden shores, Alicante is a popular vacation destination for sun-seekers, golfers, and yacht enthusiasts, as well as travelers who simply enjoy the dramatic coastline and beautiful countryside. Our Spain trip itinerary planner allows you to schedule your trip to Alicante, learn about its attractions, and find out about where else to go during your holiday.
