Spain Travel Deals: Good Deals in Zaragoza
I have spent several blog posts telling you about various Spain travel deals which can save you money when traveling to some of Spain’s busiest, and most popular tourist cities. However, you may be interested in seeing some areas of Spain that are less frequented by tourists. Perhaps you are looking for a short getaway from the major cities so that you can enjoy Spain without all the large crowds, and get a feel for what the country is really like. If this sounds like you, then I would like to suggest a visit to the city of Zaragoza.
Zaragoza is located fairly close to the cities of Barcelona and Madrid. This makes it a wonderful idea for an addition to your holiday if you have already visited one of these two larger cities. Luckily for tourists, the city is very well served by various forms of mass transit. You can quickly visit Zaragoza via Spain’s high speed rail system, or you might choose to fly into the city’s airport, which is served daily by a number of airlines. If you are really looking to save money, and you have a bit of time, you can find Spain travel deals for coach service to Zaragoza as well.
Once you arrive, you will be pleased to learn that because of its small size, Zaragoza is very walkable. So, you can see all the sites quite easily without spending a lot on transportation. If you do want some help getting around the city, and finding all the must see locations, a trip on the tourist bus is only 7 Euros. As I said in a previous post, bus tours like this can be some of the best Spain travel deals for first timers to a city.
I think you will find that despite its small size, Zaragoza has many great sites to see. Cathedral de la Seo (a beautiful Gothic church), and Palacio de la Aljaferia (a magnificent castle boasting golden ceilings), are among the best tourist destinations. There is also a very large, and wonderfully maintained city bark that you are sure to enjoy.
If you want to visit Zaragoza, I can recommend a good, inexpensive hotel as well. Hotel Sauce, at Calle de Espoz y Mina 33, is a privately owned hotel which is ideally placed for visiting Zaragoza. You will find that the city cathedral, along with a wide variety of restaurants is within easy reach.
In addition to its prime location the hotel has a very attentive staff. Rooms are kept very clean, and employees are happy to help travelers. If you prefer to eat in the morning, a good sized Spanish style breakfast is made available. Free wifi internet is also conveniently available for guests to take advantage of.
This hotel’s small size and excellent staff give it a more personal feel than you might find elsewhere. On top of that, with rooms starting around 60 Euros ($90 US dollars), Hotel Sauce represents one of Zaragoza’s best Spain Travel Deals.
