A brief tour of Alicante
Let's go and do a bit of Alicante travel. The first place to visit is the gorgeous beachfront by the harbour, then along the main pedestrian walkway, the "Explanada de España", a stunning promenade by the sea decorated with black, red and cream marble and surrounded by beautiful palm trees nearby the street shops and cafes. This is a striking place where you can enjoy an outdoor seafront concert in the balmy summery Sunday mornings and bank holidays.
Touring towards the center, northwest of the "Explanada", we can find the impressive Cathedral of Saint Nicholas surrounded by the narrow streets of the old quarter of "El Barro", where the best nightlife and some of the cheapest accommodation can be found. Walking towards the southwest by "Calle de Italia" we bump into the main tourist information and post offices as well as the central bus and train stations of Alicante city.
