​Start Preparing for Your Trip

   Vaccinations: Routine vaccinations

Visas: Not required for US citizens for a stay up to 90 days

What to Pack: "Spain Power adapter – Spain’s electrical outlets call for 220V, 50 Hz — and type F prongs (with the rounded tip). This is different than the U.S., so bring along an adapter for each charger you’ll need so that you don’t risk frying your electronics or being unable to charge them. If you’re visiting other countries, I highly recommend you get a International power adapter that works in practically every country."

​​Alicante

History:

"The land of Alicante has been inhabited for over 7000 years with the first tribes travelling from Central Europe around 5000 to 3000 B.C. Some of the tribes in Alicante settled around the slopes of mount Benacantil on which today stands the castle of Santa Bárbara. The highlight of this mountain was that it was close to the sea, but yet offered security from invaders due to its height."

Valencia

History:

"Spain’s third-largest city is a magnificent place, content for Madrid and Barcelona to grab the headlines while it gets on with being a wonderfully liveable city with thriving cultural, eating and nightlife scenes. Never afraid to innovate, Valencia diverted its flood-prone river to the outskirts and converted the former riverbed into a glorious green ribbon of park winding right through the city."
