What’s the best way to get around Alicante?
As Alicante is a small city, you’ll find walking around a perfect way to see all the attractions and sights. However, you do have the option of taking public transport; a frequent bus service runs day and night. Moreover, five tram lines link Alicante to surrounding areas; you’ll find it easy to extend your holiday to include the neighbouring towns of Benidorm, Altea, and Denia.
What’s the weather in Alicante?
You’ll find Alicante to be the perfect year-round destination due to its overall temperate warmer climate.
