The city of Alicante is located in the eastern part of Spain, in the Valencia region, and is a kind of "precious decoration" of the region. Here, in a strange way, old and new Spain are mixed. On the one hand, the city has a castle and old streets, and on the other, a noisy promenade for modern tourism, selfies and fun-filled relaxation.

Alicante Airport, ALC

The airport is very close to the city, only 10 km away. It serves about 13 million passengers a year, which is not bad for a small regional airport. At the same time, almost half of the tourists arrive in Alicante from the UK. The province of Alicante is the favorite resort of British tourists as Benidorm is located here also.

 

Alicante airport has not yet exhausted its capacity to increase passenger flow, so there are no large crowds here. It’s worth using and visiting the popular resort province in the near future.

How to get from the airport to the city center?

From the airport to the center of Alicante you can reach in two main ways: by taxi or bus.

Taxis are definitely the fastest way. In just 15 minutes you will find yourself in the heart of the city. But for the speed you have to pay about 20 euros.

If you want to save money, take the C6 bus. You will be traveling for about half an hour, but the price of a one-way ticket is a modest 3.85 euros.

Alicante Sightseeings

This Spanish city has a lot of interesting things: magnificent sandy beaches surrounded by ideal promenades, a well-preserved old city filled with bars and restaurants with tapas, many cultural attractions, showing everything from archeological artifacts to modern art. There is always something to do here. And here are some examples for seed:

Santa Barbara Fortress

Now “Santa Barbara” is the name of the series forever, and before it was just the name of the fortress in Alicante. To get here, you have to overcome a rather long route up. But then you will find yourself in the Arab fortress of the 9th century, which received it's modern look in the 18th century. Now here is the historical museum.

To go here is not only for the sake of antiquity, which peeps out of every stone. But also for the sake of extraordinary views that open from a height.

Tabarca Island

On a free day, rent a boat and go to the island of Tabarca, which once served as the pirates' secret lair. Now this two-kilometer stretch of land is a marine reserve, and its rocky coastline is ideal for walking in a pirate cocked hat and preferably with a parrot on his shoulder.

Take some food with you, have a picnic, feel like Robinson on a small island. Or stay close to civilization in a tiny island town.

Cathedral of San Nicolas de Bari

The main church of Alicante is made in the style of the late Renaissance, which was built between the 16th and 18th centuries on the ruins of the previous cathedral. San Nicolas de Bari is the main saint of Alicante, whose statue adorns the chapel.

This beautiful cathedral with a huge dome was designed by Augustine Bernardino, a disciple of the great Juan de Herrera. An ideal place to experience Spanish Renaissance architecture.

MARQ

The ultra-modern archaeological museum MARQ enlivens the history of the city with its exhibits. The museum is located on the outskirts of the city near the ruins of the ancient Roman city. In the museum you will see not just neatly arranged exhibits behind glass like bones, amphorae, coins or ceramics. But you can also take part in interactive entertainment that will immerse you as much as possible in the past. You can also see how archaeological excavations actually take place.

Alicante Museum of Modern Art

In the oldest public building of the city today is a museum of the most advanced art. Such an ironic combination that occurs in Alicante at every turn. The building is fully renovated and expanded. In addition to contemporary art, there are also classic works of the 20th century — Miro, Picasso and Dali. You can also see a large collection of kinetic works by Eusebio Semper, who donated them to the museum along with his impressive collection of Spanish artists.

Santa Cruz District

This is the oldest part of Alicante. Here you can walk through the labyrinth of narrow streets that suddenly can turn into large squares and alleys. Santa Cruz is a series of steep stairs that take you down past colorful houses lavishly decorated with flowers.

In addition to the usual walk in this area, you need to do two main things: eat Spanish tapas and take the best vacation photos that will be worthy of the pages of magazines (or the envy of subscribers on Instagram).

What to eat in Alicante

As elsewhere in Spain, acquaintance with Alicante should start with tapas (a variety of snacks) and paella. Paella is cooked differently in all parts of the country. Historically, the set of ingredients depended on what grew or lived in the region.

On the whole, there is no special cuisine that differs from the pan-Spanish one. But at the same time in a small tourist town there was a place for the best restaurants in the country. There are more Michelin stars in Alicante alone than in all of Spain. Therefore, gourmets just have to go here.

The god of wine Bacchus would surely feel at home in Alicante. Due to the dry and hot climate, the local wine is considered one of the best in Spain. Moreover, locals drink it diluted with water from lunch literally. It seems we should be a little Spaniards.
