Trips and excursions from Salamanca

Salamanca is a great "base camp" from which to explore the province and other places in Spain and even Europe. It is well connected to the rest of Spain and Portugal by bus and train, and it is just about two and a half hours from Madrid's airport, from which you can fly to virtually everywhere. Roads are good in the area, too, so you may prefer to rent a car o share one via car-sharing websites like Blablacar or Amovens. Make the most out of your stay at Tía Tula Spanish School by joining the excursions offered every week or by organising your own, and add to an already unforgettable experience.  

These articles round-up may inspire you when choosing your next destinations. Find suggestions and also the experience of our students.
