València - Region of Valencia
València is a special city! Here, you can both step back in time and experience centuries-old traditions and live in the moment and discover the best of innovation, arts and science. This city is one that welcomes you and makes you feel like a part of its festivals, people, sites, beaches and landscapes from the very beginning.
Touring València means getting lost in the streets of its beautiful Old Town. One neighbourhood, Carmen, a jewel of the city, is a living example of how history and modernity meet. There, you can visit different theatres, go to great bars and restaurants and explore historically-valuable sites like the Catedral de València, Miguelete, Torres de Serrano and Torres de Quart. (The latter two were once fortified gates of the Medieval wall of València.)
Discovering València also means seeing the stunning Mediterranean sunset from Parque de Cabecera or taking a walk through the old riverbed of the Turia River. Today, this riverbed has been turned into a charming park that runs through the entire city and is frequented by runners, bike riders, pet lovers and families with strollers alike.
As you make your way through the city, you’ll discover Palau de la Música, the charming flower bridge or the famous Exposición bridge (better known as the “La Peineta Bridge.”) Before you leave, make sure you see the City of Arts and Sciences, an impressive display of innovation, culture and art in València.
València is a city full of magic. When you’re there, you get to have unforgettable experiences and feel right at home. The welcoming and open nature of its people make València one of those destinations that always calls you back.
Don’t leave without immersing yourself in València’s two iconic beaches, Malvarrosa Beach and Arenas Beach, which are known for their fine sand and pleasant waters. Malvarrosa Beach is located in the fishing district of Cabanyal. (Fishing is actually one of the oldest jobs in València, and this enclave keeps its heritage and customs intact.) Arenas Beach, which combines old Mediterranean traditions with the pleasures of a modern-day beach, is located next to the marina.
Of course, a trip to València can’t end without going on a delicious food and wine tour. Here, fresh-caught seafood and farm-to-table garden products pave the way for the city’s iconic dishes: like “titaina del Cabanyal,” paella on the beach, esgarraet, horchata and fartons.
Sounds good, right? Come experience it all for yourself!
