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.
Kick off your visit on the 2nd (Wed): partake in some friendly competition at Xcapate, take an in-depth tour of MARQ Provincial Archaeological Museum, and then tour the pleasant surroundings at Palm Groves (Palmeral) of Elche. Here are some ideas for day two: don't miss a visit to Explanada de Espana, explore the world behind art at Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Alicante Maca, then look for gifts at Zebreta de Mar, and finally explore the historical opulence of Santa Bárbara Castle.

For traveler tips, reviews, other places to visit, and more tourist information, go to the Alicante sightseeing planner.
