Are you looking for a destination where you can shake off your family responsibilities for few days? Are you thinking of a romantic interlude? Or maybe a short holiday, or a weekend away with friends? Spain offers you a multitude of possibilities for a visit, whether you're planning to go out partying or are looking for a relaxing break.

If you're travelling with your partner, you'll find numerous romantic venues to explore. We suggest treating yourself to a spa break or discovering Spain by moonlight. Another attractive option is to visit Spain's slow cities, where you can forget about the time. If you prefer big cities like Madrid and Barcelona, you can make the most of your day to do some shopping, then indulge yourself in a number of fantastic restaurants, or sampling traditional tapas. And if you want to learn more about Spanish cuisine, the best idea is to follow some of our gastronomic and wine-themed routes. Spain's beach destinations also offer numerous possibilities for both relaxation and fun. But the ideas for entertainment don't stop here. Spain has a vast cultural offering and a number of world-class museums. These include the ones on the "Paseo del Arte" (Art Walk) in Madrid, the Dalí Theatre-Museum in Figueres in Cataluña, and the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao. If you're looking for some lively and traditional nightlife, we recommend visiting a typical flamenco show. And when it comes to choosing somewhere to stay, you'll find an array of unique accommodation options like the Parador hotels. You can also try your hand at agri-tourism, an ideal way of enjoying Spain's natural attractions, and its numerous national parks and biosphere reserves.
