Spain has been a destination for artists, writers, and tourists alike for countless years. With breathtaking views, rich history, and a number of iconic sites and traditions such as bullfighting, flamenco dancing, and so much more, it’s no wonder so many people fly to Spain for their vacations. Whether you are visiting for history or nightlife, art or nature, when you travel to Spain you are sure to find something memorable.
History lovers should make time to see the palace and monastery of El Escorial, or explore the medieval mountainside city of Cuenca. For something more unusual, visit Valencia in August to take part in the annual tomato-throwing festival. Enjoy fresh air and hike along the route of Santiago de Compostela, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Spain’s climate varies by region, but tourism tends to peak in the summer between June and September, so you can find flight deals to Spain during the off-season. Many hotels and tourist attractions close for the winter, but you can find cheap hotels in Spain during the early spring and fall, as well as enjoy the sparse crowds. Book your tickets to Spain with Alitalia well in advance if you plan on visiting during holidays.
