Alicante city is the second-largest urban settlement in the Valencia region, a place that for many is nothing more than a tourist hot-spot, and while that may be indeed true, there is surely much more to it than that.
First off there’s the weather, which has to be said, it’s rather splendid. This makes the San Juan Beach one of the best beaches in the region, it’s been awarded the Blue Flag by the European Union and is a great place for both sunbathers as well as those who are looking to swim and enjoy the water, alongside a selection of bars, shops, cafes and the like.
The Alicante city Town Hall is a great example of Baroque civic architecture and is located right behind La Explanada Park, you can’t miss it because of its twin 35 meter towers, one particular interesting attraction of the building is a rather dramatic statue of Dali.
Arguably the one thing that you just have to see when in Alicante city is the Castle of Santa Barbara. This is one of the largest medieval fortresses in Spain, and it’s located at the center of the city, atop Mount Benacantil, so that it can command a wonderful view of the city and its surroundings.

The fact is that the city packs in quite a few things to see, even if you’re not the adventuring type of tourist so the idea of hiring some Alicante car hire services should not be overlooked while on your trip there.
The advantages of Alicante car hire services would be several, starting with the fact that you’ll be able to schedule your time and not depend on any of the local public transportation services. So this means that you can visit whichever sights or attractions you want to, when you want no. Not only this but you can use your rental car to explore Alicante’s surroundings and even go to neighboring towns, villages and cities for day trips and the like.
One other great benefit from employing such services is that you can cater the size or type of the car to the size of your group, great stuff when you’re traveling with a larger group.
