To celebrate the brand-new ferry route from Cork direct to Santander, we’ve pulled together 10 Things to See & Do in Santander, one of Spain’s best loved cities on the Northern coast. We live a stone’s throw from here, across the bay in Cantabria, and it’s a joy to showcase what’s on our doorstep. If you want to travel in style, we’d be honoured to design your tailored Totally Spain trip starting out here in Santander, Northern Spain.
If you’ve ever thought about exploring Portugal, then please don’t wait any longer – it’s a wonderful country with so much to offer. Here at Totally Spain, we’ve seen the hugely positive shift in the standard and quality of the tourist offering in Portugal over the past decade. And we love designing custom itineraries for our valued clients so they can appreciate the charms of Portuguese food, its architecture, its capital city, its coastline and its interior and it’s wonderful people. In this post we’d like to introduce the Lisbon region that includes Portugal’s capital city and goes north as far as the Central Region of Portugal (which we will cover in a separate guide). The Lisbon region is perfect for a week long break featuring a few days in the capital plus a few daytrips to nearby towns and villages. As you’ll see below, there is an excellent choice to appeal to all tastes and interests.
Thinking about booking a gastronomy tour in Seville, Madrid or Barcelona? We’ve been designing itineraries in Spain & Portugal for two decades and always encourage Totally Spain clients to take a food tour. Why not join us on a “behind-the-scenes” in Seville, to see why they are fun, educational and filling too!
Kids are adored in Spain and you’ll find that they are great ice-breakers when it comes to mixing with the locals. But that doesn’t mean there won’t be a few hiccups along the way when travelling with junior. We’ve put together this food guide for families in Spain so you know what’s what when it comes to feeding your children on holiday.
