Valencia welcomes you.

How is it possible to describe Valencia just in one word? It is simply amazing.

With its tourist attractions, its beaches, the hidden alleyes to discover, it seems to be perfect city for young people who wants to find a new experience of studying, working or who just wants to start a new journey.

I have to admit sincererly that, firstly, beeing in Spanish land,could be complicated. It is easy to feel disoriented or alone, but after few days it will be easy to feel like at home. Valencia infact, is the third spanish city, after Madrid and Barcellona, with a surface of 134,65 km² and a number of inhabitants of 790.201.

Extended, dispersive, with different zones and areas which are far from each others but they are combined and they feels the sense of belonginess to a unique city of Spain and of Valencia Community.

Firstly, to have a first approach and starting familiarizing with the city, my best suggestion is to take part into a sightseeing tour on red bus to have a panning shot of the city or rent a bike, pedaling in the 32km of cycle lane along of the monuments of the city.

Surely a long lapse of time, it has to be dedicated to the most important touristic attraction, the city of artes and ciences. I recommend you to visit it by bike, along Turia’s gardens. Bikes can easily rented in one of the authomatic point in the city.

During the past, there was the river, today it is a big wide green space host water fountains, palms, cycle lane, space for children, bars, squares for exercize.

The city of art is a wide architectonical space, as a little real city. It was built by the architech Santiago Calatrava. With its white and gray colours, its curve and sinuous lines, it hosts different buildings that are used for different functions. Don’t hesitate to visit the Hemisferic, which visit is recommended to assist to the projection of a movie in IMAX (above all scientific documentaries or cartoons for children) in a spherical surface of 13. 000 m² and it will be as staying in the movie itself.

Then, if you are interested into scientific phenomena, don’t lose the interactive museum of science Principe Filipe, collocated in a building with a typical form of skeleton.

If you want to have a pleasant night too and if you love disco clubs, you definitly have to go to Umbracle. It’s a boulevard walking with veggetals species, which are typical of Valencia Community by day while it is transformed into a big and dressy club by night, perfect to join the spanish and unique atmosphere of the city of Calatrava.

Other inevitable stop-over is the Oceanographic in Valencia. It’s the biggest European aquarium, which is divided in different open and closed sections (Antartico, Artico, Mediteranneo, Tropical) and it offers a big show with dolphins and the chance to have a romantic dinner among fish and sea animals.

If you are interested in music and theatre, other stop is at Palacio of Art Reina Sofia.

Visited this area, moving to the sea, a walk on the beach is a must, shooting at a beautiful sunset on the Malvarrosa Playa. After a beach day, waiting for eating a Valencian Paella, drink a fresh cocktail at Marina Beach Club ( just people over 21 can go in!)

If you are looking for a crowded, big and long playa to stay with your friends, The Malvarrosa is the perfect one for you. If you are looking for a quiet one, El Saler is better. It has sand dunes, clean water and wind. It is waiting for you!

Other stop is Albufera, a natural park which represents the bigger lake in Spain. I recommend you the boat trip to observe better the nature and be quiet for a reflexive pause.

Moving into the ancient part of the city, i recommend you the panoramical view from Mirador, on Plaza the L’ayuntamento. Without map, let you transport from the real spanish atmosphere, have a walk in the ancient part of the city, in which there are the cathedral, the indoor market.

You must try some local products as a jamón sandwich or other that you like.

There are two other headquarters where to spend a pleasure night immersing themselfes in the spanish atmosphere, in the barrio or Ruzafa quarters.

Ideals places to eat tapas or drink good sangria with friends at economical prices to everybody.

There are lots of alleys to discover with graffitis too. I recommend you to try the typical beverage, it is called Orxata and it is very fresh and refreshing for summer.

Other attractions are Biopark, that let you take the chance to do a safari and feel like in Africa among Lions, zebras and giraffes. If you are interested into culture too, don’t lose the museum of Belles Artes and real gardens. So these are the most important attractions but there are others to discover.

And Valencia is not just a place where to be on holidays but to live it too. The weather is good during the year, for the presence of sea, maybe it is hot in the summer and with a very high tax of humidity. And what saying about the spanish people? They are kind, and they will feel you like at home.

10 Reasons to visit Valencia.

10 Reasons to visit Valencia:

The tenth one is:a good climate.

Valencians often brag about being blessed with 300 days of sun every year – which sounds rather like a touristic advertising slogan than like a meteorological description. In any case, the city stands out due to its typical mild and humid Mediterranean climate, but with a lot of sun and an average temperature of 18°C throught the whole year. The most rain-laden months are October and November, when the cold drop phenomenon occurs and powerful storms arise that have caused great damage in the whole region.

The eighth one is:a Valencian Safari.

Believe it or not, Valencia is the perfect place to see lions, elephants and giraffes at close range. Meerkats, red river hogs, aardvarks and other African species can also be found: in the Bioparc, a zoo that lets you discover the heart of Africa amidst Valencia. It was inaugurated five years ago and is divided into the four big ecosystems of the African continent (savannah, the island of Madagascar, rain forest and wetlands). It follows the recent tendency of zoos that handle animals with more respect, providing them with well maintained large enclosures, embarking on a less exotic and more ecological path. To see everything, you should count with more than two hours. It’s a good recompensation for children that have behaved well in museums and historic sites before.

The seventh one is: The Falles.

The big traditional celebration takes place in March and is really worth seeing. It doesn’t last a day or a weekend, but fills the whole period from March 15 to 19 with traditions. It ends with the Crèma, the burning of the over 700 giant humoristic and satirical puppets and monuments that are called fallas and gave their name to the celebration. Being a street festival, it is closely overwatched by the Central Falles Board (Junta Central Fallera) and the Craftsman Union of Falles Artists. In addition to the spectacular bonfires, the festivities include parades afoot and on horses, traditional costumes, music and particularly abundant pyrotechnics and the smell of gunpowder, especially on the 19th on the Town Hall Square.

The sixth one is: Valencian Water.

Valencian Water (span. Agua de Valencia) does not come from the tap, but is a cocktail made from sparkling wine, orange juice, vodka, gin and sugar, with varying recipes in each bar. It is served in jugs of 1l or more to make it easier to share with the whole group. Oranges are another star product of the region and can be found on many shields and urban decorations.

The fifth one is: Paella.

This surely sounds pretentious, but you haven’t tried real paella until you have eaten it in Valencia, the home town of this rice dish that foreigners mix up with its multiple variations from other Spanish regions or cuisines even further away. One of the reasons for the local supremacy of Paella is the importance of rice as a regional product, that is also used in other highly popular dishes like Arroz a banda (rice cooked in fish stock). Strolling the streets of the old town, you can taste the various delicious rice dishes in complete menus for EUR 20.

10 Reasons to visit Valencia:

The fouth one is The Mediterranean Sea.

Valencia was built by the Romans at the river banks, and although it doesn’t turn away completely
from the sea, it watches it from a safe distance. Peculiarly, the city centre is 4 kilometres away from
the Mediterranean Sea, which makes it easy to forget for a moment the great advantages of a city
beach like Malvarrosa. What’s more, Valencia is one of the main cruise ports in Spain, where, two
decades ago, around ten ships arrived per year, whereas this season, there will be more than 230.

The third one is: the Cathedral.

The church in the heart of the historic city centre has a complex history, for it started as a Roman temple, was rebuilt into a Visigothic cathedral, then was converted by the Moors into the Mosque of Balansiya, and was finally reconstructed into the Cathedral that we see today. This explains its eclectic style with a Gothic fundament and a Moorish bell tower amongst other elements. But it is not only its architecture that makes it attractive: on a small altar, you can find the almost peculiarly small Holy Grail that is said to have been used by Jesus Christ for drinking wine with his disciples during the Last Supper. It has been defended with a certainty of 95% to be the true Holy Grail. The cathedral also holds two important paintings by Francisco de Goya that depict scenes from the life of Saint Francis Borgia.
