If your trip to Zaragoza is all sorted out but your itinerary is a bit on the empty side, let us give you a few hints and tips.
You'll have to roll out of bed early if you're hoping to see all the great sights this place has to offer. Plaza de Espana and Zaragoza Museum are no-brainers. Plaza del Pilar and Basilica de Nuestra Senora del Pilar shouldn't be overlooked either.
Not far from the city center, Puerto Venecia is one spot you might like to consider putting on your to-do list. Zaragoza Amusement Park and La Romareda are also not far away and worth taking the time to see.
With some terrific day trip options in the surrounding area, renting a car makes sense. Without one, it'd be much harder to experience everything that Huesca, 40 miles away, has to offer. Huesca Cathedral, El Alcoraz Stadium and Espacio 042 alone make the drive out worth it. Don't miss Tudela either! Just 47 miles away, Puente Sobre, Plaza de los Fueros and Munoz Sola Museum of Modern Art are non-negotiable stops here.
Point your car towards Playas del Ebro. It's 2 miles from Zaragoza and is a wonderful place to clear your head. Go for a gentle walk by the sea and listen to the waves lapping at the foreshore.
Socializing and networking with lots of new people can be draining. So if you're in Zaragoza for a work-related trip, you'll be pleased to learn that there are some fantastic places to put your feet up near these popular convention centers:

Check out our range of mid-size and full-size SUVs. With plenty of cargo space and more oomph under the hood, these bigger cars will make those long, scenic drives even more memorable.

You'll be happy to hear that there's a great range of both economy and luxury rentals in Zaragoza. What you end up going for will depend on your funds and the activities you've got planned. Specialty and prestige vehicles offer unparalleled comfort and class. If you're splashing out, why not grab a fully kitted-out SUV, or perhaps a cushy medium-sized vehicle? Otherwise, if you're just after a set of wheels to whiz around town in as cheaply as possible, go for an economy compact vehicle (or something else that's unlikely to break the bank).
