Valencia is an incredible mix between modernism and tradition.
So there is quite a lot of activities that you can do during your stay.
We selected 9 of them for you:
- Go through the Turia Garden by bike
The old river bed of the Turia has been converted into a leafy 9-kilometre-long garden which connects the Parc de Capçalera with the City of Arts and Sciences. If you go by bike you can discover the fantastic museums, monuments and bridges that the river has to offer.
- Shop in the finnest stores
As we told you before, València is a fusion of tradition and modernity. Spend an afternoon shopping in the historic centre, el Carmen, Ruzafa or Eixample, and choose from international brands and creations of Valencian designers which are sure to surprise you.
- Have a horchata and fartons
There’s no better place to have this popular drink made from “chufa” a fruit that is only grown in Valencia. Have it for breakfast or for a snack, either liquid or as a sorbet texture, and remember to ask for “fartons” to dip which will sweeten your day.
- Take pictures of the spectacular sunset at the Albufera
The best way of getting to know this ecologically valued lagoon is to have a walk next to it! We advise you to make this little tour around sunset time!
- Take in Valencia’s views from the Miguelete tower of the Cathedral
Another incredible view would be from the Miguelete tower in Valencia, where you can climb the 207 steps of the spiral staircase to reach the top of the bell tower. From there, you’ll have an impressive 360º view of the city. You won’t regret it!
- Discover our culture with the Silk Road
The Golden age of the silk trade brought an economic, social and cultural revolution along with it, which changed València. Follow the hidden Silk Road route by walking through the Velluters area, the Silk Museum, the Silk Exchange (Lonja de la Seda, UNESCO World Heritage Site) and the typical Valencian dress shops.
- See the best teams of the Spanish league
First division football makes the Mestalla and Ciudad de Valencia stadiums tremble. From mid-August until the start of June, you can attend Valencia CF and Levante UD matches and cheer on some of the world’s best players.
- Do a route to try tapas and beer
Of course, spanish food is famous for it's tapas and beer so don't forget to try it after the race!
- Taste a real paella next to the sea
Yes, you’ve probably already planned to have paella. But what you might not know is that their most well-known dish tastes even better with a sea view. That’s why we recommend the restaurants at Las Arenas beach, with panoramic views of the Mediterranean, or those at the Albufera Natural Park. Wherever you go, you’ll love it!
