Alicante Holidays

Alicante holidays are the perfect breakaway to explore Spanish history amidst the various castles and beautiful mountains. Alicante is the second largest city in the province of Valencia. It is located on the eastern coast of Spain, nearly halfway down the Costa Blanca to the south of Benidorm and Valencia.

Alicante is one of the oldest cities in Spain and has a long history, which dates back to the 4th Century B.C. Alicante was once called “Lucentum”, which means the ‘City of Light’. Alicante is located along the Mediterranean Sea, warded by huge mountains and thus Alicante holidays make for a quiet retreat with many scenic places to visit.

General Etiquette in Alicante

•    People are often referred to as Don or Donna with their first name, when in a formal occasion, as a general rule.
•    If you are invited for a meal at a Spaniard’s house, and if you know that your host has children, taking gifts for them is always appreciated.
