Looking for ideas of things to do in Valencia?

Valencia can seem a city of clichés: the light, the moon, the gunpowder, the paella, the flowers and the Fallas festivals. But these are nothing but key terms to explain what cannot really be put into words. You need to visit Valencia in order to experience first-hand how centuries-old traditions coexist with modernity. Realise that sea and city are compatible, and that the green of the nature can indeed live together with a modern urban area.

It is a well-known fact that Valencia is unique during the day and at night, and nowadays, the capital of the river of Turia has another added value. Amongst the myriad of attractions and things to do in Valencia, now there are also a series of exciting infrastructures like the City of Arts and Sciences, or the Príncipe Felipe Museum, which are of course linked with culture. Do not forget to visit the extraordinarily beautiful Saint Mary’s Cathedral of Valencia, and get to know its history, as well as its different architectural elements.

If you want to get in touch with nature during your stay, one of the most interesting places to visit in Valencia is definitely La Albufera Natural Park. Situated about 10 kilometres south of the city, this rich and biodiverse natural reserve spans a surface of 21 hectares, and has the biggest lagoon in Spain. Nearby you will also find some of the best places where you can sample typical rice dishes of Valencia, namely Paella. Visit Valencia and discover the many wonders of this city..

Valencia can be a city of clichés: the light, the moon, the gun-powder, the paella, the flowers, the fallas... they are keys which attempt to explain what words cannot tell. It is necessary to visit and get to know Valencia to verify that centenary traditions live together with modernity; that sea and city are compatible; that the green colour of farms can be kept together with a modern urban scheme; that Valencia is unique at night and during the day. But the capital of the river Turia is more than that. In addition to the innumerable attractions which the city has had for years, now there is a series of showy infrastructures such as the Ciudad de las Artes y las Ciencias (City of Arts and Sciences) which, as they are located in this environment, are linked to culture. Valencia has put the icing on the cake, although it will not have a rest and will go on decorating its succulent presentation without missing the major events or a trip to the African savannah in the Bioparc.
