Salamanca is not that big, so If you just want to get an idea on how it is, with one day you see most of it. If you drive there, just park the car outside the city. There is a good parking place in “Puente Enrique Esteban”.
I often heard that there are tons of students in Salamanca and it was right! Surprisingly I came across many Americans. Universities in Salamanca have the best
reputation in Spain and there are tons of studens around. They also say that night life is amazing there, but to tell you the truth I still haven´t had the chance to experience it (just give me a couple of weeks hahahh). What I couldn´t find is a good restaurant around. All of them looked very tourist oriented, but nothing fancy and with personality. Well I guess I didn´t explore that much anyways.
You will find cathedrals, places, churches and other buildings of artisitc styles such as romanesque, gothic, plateresque and barroque. I recommend you to go to “Plaza Mayor” and have a nice cold beer sat on one of the many terraces you will find there. It is worthwile!
