Spain has so much to offer from relaxing on the beach, partying in the resorts or exploring the peaceful countryside and villages. Even the best known cities have always something new to offer and if you're visiting in spring or summer, try to coincide with some of the country's excellent local festivals. Spain is also known for its slightly obsessive cultural identities and religious diversities, making it a very varied and interesting country to visit. But don't just visit the big cities, get out on the open roads and discover a Spain that will amaze and delight.
Recommended Self-Drive Routes in Spain
Madrid to Seville
After spending time in the vibrant capital, head south to Andalucia stopping off to see the magnificent buildings in the city of Toledo. Continue south to Seville through open countryside, where you'll find the roads can be delightfully quite allowing you time to enjoy the views. One thing to note when driving in Andalucia is that when you come across a village or small town, you can easily park just outside the old quarters and stroll into the centre.
Valencia to Barcelona
These two cities have heaps to offer and the drive along the Mediterranean coast is definitely a must. There is a highway that will get you there in around 3 hours but try to take time out to visit the small coastal towns or the mountain ranges and beaches in Natural Park of Serra d'Irta. Arriving in Barcelona, you'll notice the switch to the Catalan language and the world renowned architectural delights.
