Later, venture to the southern city of Malaga where you can dig your toes into the white sandy beaches and sit beneath shady palm trees.

Best Time to Visit Spain

The best time to visit any region of Spain is in late spring and early fall. If you plan to spend most of your time in Northern Spain, consider coming during the summer months as well as temperatures are mild and the rainfall of winter has left behind verdant landscapes. If you plan to spend the majority of your time in Southern Spain, try to avoid a visit during Late July or August as these months present especially steamy temperatures.

Many international travelers also choose to visit Spain during Semana Santa, or Holy Week, the seven days leading up to Easter. This week presents a culturally immersive experience of day-long processions through the historic downtown of most major Spanish cities, especially in southern Spain. Tourists should be aware that wait times will be longer and crowds will be much larger, especially in the center of the city.

History Deep Dive in Andalucia

Delve into the wonder of centuries past when you visit some of Andalucia's most iconic historical gems including La Alhambra palace in Granada, El Alcazar in Seville, and La Mezquita in Cordoba.

Pintxos Bar Crawl in Northern Spain

Fall in love with the elegance of downtown San Sebastian as you join your guide on a luxurious tour of the city's most esteemed pintxos hideaways.

Travel Considerations

Weather

The weather of Spain varies greatly from one region to the next. In southern Spain spring and fall both mild weather, while summers, particularly during the months of July and August, bring heatwaves reaching into the 90s and 100 degrees on a daily basis.

Conversely, Northern Spain experiences mild summers in the mid-70s. However, winters can be very rainy and inclement weather is somewhat unpredictable throughout the day.

Transportation in Spain is fairly simple and easy-to-use. Most international travelers will fly into Madrid, Barcelona, or Malaga.

When visiting attractions on the outskirts of the city, tourists can travel via private shuttle or taxi service.

Packing

Consider packing in a light carry-on bag or backpack. Avoid bringing roller bags as the cobblestone streets and uneven roads of rural villages can be difficult to maneuver with roller bags.
