There’s a ton of things to see when sightseeing in Murcia Spain. The
city, which shares the same name as the province, is also the capital.

busier airport. This may help you get a better price on your flight.
You’re definitely best of getting around the city with a rental car. You
can do this right outside of the Alicante airport, and just outside of
the terminal in which you’ll exit your flight.

a much more simple process if you do this at Alicante. You’ll want to
compare the prices with the car service companies in the actual city if
you’re flying into San Javier since you’ll likely find a much better
deal. Reserving your car ahead of time will help you have a much smoother
process and allow you to just go and pick up your car after your flight
lands.

to enjoy if that’s your thing. If you are traveling with children then

exhibit.
