Spain Tours - Highlights and Vacation Tips

Beautiful roman ruins, Islamic architecture, great civilizations, a delightful history, an alluring culture and an edgy creativity is what defines any trip to Spain. The country’s rich and diverse landscapes always have a way of getting to you. The Pyrenees are as majestic as any other mountain on the continent and are famous as one of the best hiking destinations in Europe. Madrid and Barcelona always present a grand vibe and an incredible experience. The charming coves of the Mediterranean truly make you fall in love with nature and there are always quaint little villages that present an old-world European way of life to choose from.

Spain Vacation Tips

  • Spaniards are incredibly intimate and like to tell it as it is. Expect to be greeted with a kiss, even by strangers, and it’s not unusual to be interrupted as you speak.
  • When dining out with friends, always opt for some paella. Arguably the most popular dish in Spain, it’s often cheaper to share by increasing the size of your paella than to order a separate meal.
  • If you want to see the inside of the Sagrada Familia, be sure to buy your tickets online before you go. Only a certain number of people are allowed inside each day, and tickets sell out days in advance.
  • Though there’s plenty to see on Spain’s mainland, its many islands are also worth visiting. Check out Ibiza for some incredible nightlife, Lanzarote for unique volcanic landscapes, or Fuerteventura for surfing.
  • Promptness isn’t exactly a value in Spain. Spaniards tend to be very laid back and arrive late.
