Barcelona

Do you need to hire a car in Barcelona? Barcelona was one of the original reasons for setting up Carornocar.com, when I heard from a friend who had picked up a hire car at Barcelona airport, driven it to the hotel, kept it in the garage for a week, and then driven it back to […]

Bilbao

Do I need to hire a car in Bilbao? The Basque city of Bilbao is known above anything else for one big draw, the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao, designed by the architect Frank Gehry and rated by Time Magazine as the building of the 20th century. Whilst this building is truly dramatic, Bilbao is some distance […]

Fuerteventura

Gran Canaria

Should I hire a car in Gran Canaria? Gran Canaria is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Spain, but as with the other Canary Islands, there is no rail-based public transport to get around here, just an extensive network of buses.

Seville

Do I need to hire a car in Seville? Many people heading for the Spanish Costas forget that Andalusia also has some fantastic cities in its interior, and these should never be overlooked. Some people just make day trips to cities like Seville and Granada from the Costa Del Sol, and this can easily be […]

Valencia

Spain‘s third city has gone to great efforts to put itself on the tourist map, especially with the vast City of Arts and Sciences complex. This huge white monument to steel, concrete and glass, which was designed by home-grown architect Santiago Calatrava really is one of the most impressive feats of modern architecture in Europe. […]
