We all know Milan is different to Rome and Hamburg is different to Munich – but lots of first-time travellers to Spain don’t realise how different Barcelona is to Seville and San Sebastian to Madrid. We’ve been designing itineraries around Spain and Portugal for two decades and many of these trips showcase the diversity in landscape, climate, history, culture, lifestyle and cuisine. Here’s a sense of what to expect as you travel around Spain from North to South and East to West. And as always, Totally Spain is here to assist with your custom Spain tour just as we have done for thousands of travellers like you since 2000.
If you are researching stunning places to propose to your other half, look no further. Spain is so diverse, we know we have the perfect location for you and your partner. We’ve organised lots of romantic breaks in Spain, not to mention weddings and honeymoons so we know a thing or two about planning special moments. Living and working here in Spain as we do (Totally Spain is a Spain-based travel agent and specialist in custom travel to Spain since 2000), we’ve pulled together some of our favourite places where we think would be ideal to pop the question in Spain below.
When we started Totally Spain in 2000, we were planning lots of “once-in-a-lifetime” trips to Spain and our job was to make sure that all the “must-sees” were included on each itinerary. So much has changed since then. It’s now so easy to fly into smaller regional airports in Spain and thus many of our clients are actively looking to avoid the “must-see” sights in exchange for something much more personal and fresh. Moreand more they are turning to boutique destinations in Spain.
Here at Totally Spain we prepare hundreds of custom self-drive holidays around Spain every year and some of our clients even choose to tour in their own vintage or classic car. When we put together any package for car enthusiasts, we suggest a trip to one of the car museums in Spain which are so well put together that they are interesting even for those who aren’t diehard fan of old cars.
If you love Spain, you’re going to adore Extremadura. It’s got everything you want from a trip to Spain – interesting history, stunning landscapes, a blend of old and new architecture, and amazing food and fun. Although you may not be familiar with the name – it’s a popular destination with Spanish tourists for its Roman ruins and its connection with the Discovery of the Americas. See what we recommend to our Totally Spain clients when visiting Extremadura and start planning your trip!
