Alicante is half way up the east coast of Spain. I knew nothing about it, so I picked a land excursion from Princess that looked interesting. There were three attractions on the tour I chose. A visit to the city of Elche to see The Priest's Garden, a working archaeological site at La Alcudia and the Fortress of Santa Barbara. When we arrived in Alicante the archaeological site at La Alcudia was not open for visitors so the tour substituted a walking tour of Alicante. It was a gorgeous day, blue sky, temperature in the mid 70's and a slight breeze. I think Alicante is a great place for a relaxing weekend trip. Beautiful small town and what looked like a fantastic beach.
