Whilst Alicante is blessed with wonderful beaches, restaurants and is surrounded by many other interesting places to visit on the Costa Blanca itself, sometimes you just want to step off the 'tourist train' and immerse yourself in the culture and heritage of Alicante instead.
Alicante is a vibrant and exciting city and the history of Alicante itself is no different. There are several interesting and educational Alicante museums that you can visit from contemporary art through to an archeological site that dates from the Roman times.
Before you visit a museum do check the opening hours. All have siesta time and the opening hours differ in Summer from Winter and some are closed Mondays and Sundays. You can check the opening hours here or you can check at the Tourist Office when you arrive in Alicante.
Make sure you take plenty of water with you. Walking from museum to museum, or around Alicante can be hot and thirsty work.
