Preparing your trip to Galicia: advices & hints - things to do and to obey

Iglesia de San Xulián de Astureses 1. The downtown of many cities is given into the disposal of pedestrians, so it’s not always possible to travel around the territory of historic districts by car. Travelers arriving to Galicia for the first time should definitely look into one of the tourist centers and take a map.
2. One of the best tourist offices is located in Santiago de Compostela. Two offices can be found just on Rua do Vilar; seasoned travelers recommend using services of the office belonging to the municipality.
3. Those preferring to explore new cities on foot have to consider that many settlements of Galicia are located in rather complicated geographical area. If you don’t want to go hiking through the rugged terrain, you can always take a bus.
4. It’s reasonable to travel between towns by comfortable Arriva buses. They connect all settlements of the region and can deliver passengers to other parts of the country. The fare depends on the distance traveled and always remains at a reasonable level.
5. Tourist buses cruise along the territory of all major cities; it’s better to specify the timetable in advance. Typically, the cost of the tour is no more than 10 euros; it’s an ideal option for those who expect to spend only one day in a particular city. Copyright www.orangesmile.com
6. Fans of excursions are sure to take a pair of comfortable shoes with them. As noted above, many of the important attractions of Galicia are located in remote areas and you can only reach them on foot.
7. La Coruna and some other cities of the region provide travelers absolutely free bike rental that will be an excellent alternative to public transport. The procedure of the initial registration is rather long and tedious, but afterwards it gives you an opportunity to use services of all urban rent centers freely.
Every region of Galicia has its own historical landmarks. Some of them are well-known far out of the country. San Francisco Monumento hotel is one of the symbols of Santiago de Compostela. … Open
8. Travelers who expect to find many exciting souvenirs should pay attention to local cheese and popular wines. In large cities, it won’t be difficult to find specialty shops, while great cheese can be purchased at markets.
