With more than 325,000 inhabitants, Alicante is the capital of its province and the second most populated city in the Valencian Community. This city has a rich heritage, but its visitors usually choose this area for its climate and beaches.
Depending on the dates you decide to rent your vehicle you can participate in some of the most important celebrations in the area. The Bonfires of San Juan, the Pilgrimage of Santa Faz or the Moors and Christians festivities are the main tourist attractions.
If we leave aside the present to delve into the history of Alicante we will discover that the first Greek settlement named this city as Akra Leuké, whose Latin version was Lucentum.
However, it was not until the arrival of the Arabs when a name was established that would last hundreds of years: Al-Laqant. Today, despite the fact that the Castilianization has changed somewhat, Valencians still refer to their city as Alacant.
With Furauto you can pick up and drop off your rental car in strategic centers of the city, train and bus stations and the Elche-Alicante Airport. Check our search engine and select the location that best suits your trip.
Elche-Alicante Airport is located 9 kilometers south of the capital and operates flights to other Spanish and European cities.
You can travel to Oran (Algeria) and Tabarca Island from the Port of Alicante. The port of Denia also organizes daily ferry trips to Ibiza.
If you prefer the train, you should know that Alicante station receives passengers daily from various Spanish cities and some European locations. It also has connections with coastal towns and the most important beaches of the region.
