Discover Alicante, a dynamic port city on the Costa Blanca. With its many green areas, famous promenades, the beautiful marina, monuments and fantastic museums, the city has much to see and enjoy.

Depart from Madrid Atocha Railway Station aboard a high-speed rail service. Upon arrival at Alicante, hop on a comfortable double-decker bus which allows panoramic views of the port city. While on board, enjoy listening to informative audio commentary, or, you can hop on and off at any of the several stops around the city.

Among the most notable features of the city is the Castle of Santa Bárbara, which is beautifully situated on Mount Benacantil, overlooking the city. Marvel at the beauty of the medieval fortress, which is one of the largest in Europe.

Stroll through narrow streets decorated with flags and tubs of flowers at the Barrio de la Santa Cruz, a colorful quarter of the old city, situated on the southwest of the castle.

See the palm-fringed Explanada de España, the heart and soul of the city. Admire the elegant boulevard stretching around the marina, with its 6.5 million marble tiles in red, black and cream colors.

Experience the wonderful heritage of the city through its many buildings and monuments. Visit Iglesia de Santa Maria, the oldest church in Alicante. Walk a little further along the street and see the Ayuntamiento which, with its twin towers, strikes an impressive pose over a square lined by walkways.

Then, find an exhibit of local artifacts dating from Stone Age until the early 20th century at the Archaeological Museum of Alicante. Stop at the Museum of Contemporary Art and see one of the most important contemporary art collections existing in Spain today.

In the afternoon, make your way to the train station to catch the AVE high-speed train back to Madrid.
