Travel to Spain and Discover its Charm
There may be a hundred reasons for you to go on a holiday and a thousand places to choose from. You
may even be considering a holiday to one of the European countries. But if it is for any of the reasons
below, there is only one place that comes to mind!
Vacation to Spain
Imagine cruising along miles and miles of picturesque landscape, beautiful lakes and preserved natural
beauty peppered with tiny, beautiful houses and sprawling green lawns that always seem so well
manicured; or sunny beaches with the calm, warm sea luring you to dive into its depths and explore a
whole new world of sea creatures below; How about quenching your summer thirst at the local bars
with a glass of sangria offered with a variety of finger- licking tapas, and a delicious lunch of seafood
or meat paellas.
Follow it up with a relaxing siesta before you set out to enjoy a long evening. Explore the night life
infused with haunting folk music, nurture a glass of sherry as you watch the streets bustling with
activity, take a walk down one of the lanes and come face to face with the spontaneity and passion of
the flamenco!
Spain can captivate a wandering heart like no other as it romances and refreshes you to stimulate your
every sense.

HOW TO SELECT YOUR ITINERARY
If you are considering a holiday in Spain, choosing the right package holiday to Spain and planning out
your itinerary depending on what fascinates you the most, and how much time and money you can
spend. Spain is the fourth largest European country which leaves you a lot of ground to cover. Although
it boasts of the most widespread high speed railway network in Europe, you would still need to travel
large distances. You could choose to travel city-wise or province- wise.
For those who want to visit the best cities in Spain, you would need to use the extensive railway system
and travel to the far flung cities. Travelling by road within a province allows you to experience the
colors of the Spanish countryside and landscape. If you choose to go province-wise, it would give you
a closer view of Spain's diversity in culture, art, and religion. However, you need to stay in every
province for at least 4-7 days in order to feel the pulse of the place.
DISCOVERING SPAIN
Spain offers a variety of interests to its tourists. On the coastal provinces, the beaches are plenty and
inviting. Spain's history, culture and lifestyle are all reflected in the architecture of its buildings,
monuments, cathedrals and churches found everywhere, in the variety of folk and western classical
music and their dances, the museums of art and history, the wineries that made them one of the best old
world wine growing countries and so much more. If you decide to visit Spain region-wise, focus on the
best regions:
ANDALUSIA- this is one of the richest regions in Spain, the most important tourist cities here being
Seville, Ronda, Cadiz, Malaga, Granada, Jerez and Cordoba. Visits to wineries in Jerez, enjoying free
tapas in Granada, visiting the Alhambra fortress, exploring the Moorish architecture found in Seville
and Cordoba, are some of the things to do in Andalusia.
