    Essential Cities in 2017

    Summer holiday destinations have little or nothing to do with the destinations that one begins to consider from September. Those places we tend to book outside of the high season and places that are not only based on the classic sun and the beach. We like the cities, especially the big capitals with a good cultural offer, ideal for those months in which the heat is not to excessive and one can enjoy a little outdoor sport.

     

    When the curtain closes on the month of August, we turn our sights to places such as Madrid, Seville or Barcelona. Yes, the great cities and their excellent attractions return to fashion. For those who do not travel in summer, it is true that we later enjoy our holidays and we usually take long weekends or weeks of 7 to 10 days in areas with different plans on offer: sea, mountain and city. Those three keys combined, always ways works.

     

    A city with feeling

    Seville, for example, is a city that should not be missed this 2017 but which is evidently ruled out every summer. The extreme temperatures that characterise the Seville capital mean that no one in their right mind organises a holiday during in the month of August. Not until September do the afternoons start to feel a little fresher on the terraces and in the squares.

     

    Arab gardens, museums, monuments at every step, alleys like open doors that do not lead directly to the heart of the little squares crowded with local people talking and laughing in groups savouring a fresh beer with tapa of salmorejo or jamon … Seville promises good living, gastronomy and nightlife. Its people, full of energy and good humour, will help you connect with this capital city full of colour and joy.

     

    The great Mediterranean capital

    Barcelona has another style. Its cosmopolitan character makes it less genteel and more sophisticated. However, leaving the centre and looking for accommodation in the fashionable neighbourhoods you will find a world of cultures where you can immerse yourself and discover the real Barcelona: the one that welcomes immigrants of all nationalities, who supports the new ideas and standout designs, the city that is very European, very international without abandoning the local essence.

     

    Museums, theatres, squares and terraces, vintage shops, Vermouth market, tapas and areas for walking with rooms so famous that they by themselves attract a large amount of the tourism that the city recieves. Barcelona is a conglomeration of activities, which makes it impossible not to find something entertaining, something to have fun with and enjoy a completely different day from the previous ones. Raval, Poble Sec, Eixample, Montjuic … Each neighbourhood, each district offers a worthwhile history.

     

    Getting around Seville or Barcelona is very easy and economical if you opt for public transport. If you decide to discover its surroundings and leave the city, we recommend renting a car, otherwise, you can get around easier by metro, bus or taxi. Regarding the topic of the accommodation, the most interesting hotels are those that are between the 3 and 4 stars and are located near the historical centre of the city. The signature boutique hotels such as Vincci or Petit Palace are some of the most expensive alongside the Catalonian chain, highlighting, for example in Barcelona, ​​the Petit Palace Barcelona and, in Seville, the Petit Palace Santa Cruz, in the same Santa Cruz neighbourhood, next to the Cathedral. To see prices and offers, it is best to go to their official websites.
