A two-day break
A two day stay in Alicante Campanile Hotel would give you enough time to totally unwind and relax on those Costa Blanca beaches and absorb the Mediterranean climate. For nature lovers who wish to briefly adjourn the city environment, Canalejas Park, provides a vast collection of rubber plants, intriguing carvings and sculptures. All of this is reachable from Alicante Campanile Hotel.
A week-long stay
The aforementioned Castle of Santa Barbara is arguably the most defining landmark and should be visited if not only for a stunning panoramic view. To the south west of the castle is a colourful segment of the city called Barrio de la Santa Cruz, with quaint houses decorating hills that lead up towards the castle. Alicante also has an ample scattering of museums including the Archaeological Museum of Alicante (or MARQ), dedicated to 100,000-year-old local artefacts.
A family holiday:
Alicante may be steeped in historical landmarks but there is also enough to keep a family entertained. The island of Tabarca, once a refuge for Barbary pirates, is situated just kilometres away from the city on the Mediterranean Sea and is ideal for diving and enjoying the glorious waters that surround the island. El Palmeral Park, a favourite with locals, boasts children’s playgrounds, trails and picnic tables which all combine to offer something diverse.
