How to Find the Best Vigo Hotels with Venere

Vigo is a major fishing port on the north-west coast of Spain, the largest city in the region of Galicia. It's the source for much of the fish and seafood eaten in Spain, with refrigerated trains rushing the latest catch to Madrid. Vigo is a bustling and lively city with plenty to attract gourmets and sightseers alike. Vigo hotels offer an ideal base to explore the old fishermen's quarter, nearby beaches and the city's vibrant nightlife. Venere has partnered with a great range of hotels throughout the city, ensuring visitors are close to the action and within easy reach of transport connections, with helpful maps showing distances to city sights and the best way to arrive at their Vigo accommodation.

What's Vigo Like?

To get a flavor of Vigo's unique character, start at the old cobbled streets around the Rua Real. Fishermen sip a reviving coffee in small bars while the part of the catch that isn't being sent to the capital is sold in the atmospheric fish market. On the Rua da Pescaderia near the ferry terminals, traditional oyster stands sell fresh shellfish to passers-by. Vigo's best beaches are a little south of the center, further down the estuary at Samil and Vao. However, for idyllic sunbathing, many visitors make the short boat trip to the Cies islands, a protected sanctuary with a beautiful crescent beach. Ferry numbers are limited so the islands never get crowded. Vigo hotels with easy access to ferry stops and railway stations allow visitors to explore the scenic coast and country around Vigo.

Tips for Getting Along with Locals in Vigo

In Vigo, as in other regions of Galicia, it's possible that locals will speak in the Gallego dialect rather than using Spanish, but any Spanish phrases you attempt should be understood and welcomed. Embrace the local habit of sipping the excellent white Albarino wine from a ceramic bowl, accompanied by seafood tapas. Galicia has close links with South America due to the number of emigrants who headed over the Atlantic and returned home after making their fortune. Seek out Vigo's Argentinian and Uruguayan cafes and restaurants for a taste of the expatriate lifestyle. Finding the ideal accommodation in Vigo is made simple by the search facility at Venere.
