Shopping and gastronomic itinerary

When you're away from home, it's always nice to spend a few hours shopping, either for gifts for loved ones or for yourself. Alicante offers an extensive range of shopping and gastronomic options, including:

  • The Avenida Maisonnave and Surroundings flanked at its ends by two large shopping centers is, without a doubt, the shopping hub of Alicante. Here, you'll find stores from major fashion and accessory brands.
  • The gastronomic and entertainment options are more centered towards the city center, on the streets leading from the Explanada inland. In terms of food, it's essential to remember that Alicante's typical dish is not paella but "arroz alicantino," which comes in various preparations such as vegetable, lean meat and vegetables, seafood, "del señoret," and "a banda," among others. The choice of where to dine ultimately depends on your budget and tastes, but whatever they are, you're sure to find a suitable place.
