Taste a real paella

First of all, you must taste paella, but the real one which is with the rabbit and not with seafood. The best place to do this is in El Palmar, next to Albufera Natural Park. A great place to start to walk around, digest the Paella and enjoy the natural landscape. 

Get lost in the city of sciences and art

Thinking about spending some days in an open natural space? Then the place you’re looking for is the City of sciences and arts. Book a whole day to get lost in this spectacular futuristic place. The modern architecture surrounded by gardens and water is just astonishing. So Valencia isn’t just the City of Flowers and Fire and you better be prepared to be amazed!

Magical Valencia Card

The best way to move around in Valencia is taking urban transport. If you’re planning to stay for a while, I recommend you to buy Valencia Card, the public transport pass. You can use it to get into the bus, subway or tramway.

Enjoy the sun

You’ll be in a Mediterranean city so don’t miss the chance of getting a nice tan! When the sun goes out, pick up your swimsuit and go to Malvarrose beach. There you can buy an ice cream while your body gets some precious vitamin D. There is no better place to do it.

Experience the nightlife

We may call Valencia the city of Flowers and Fire but it has a great nightlife! One of the best places to go party in Valencia is the port. Just imagine yourself surrounded by the port lights with the music beat in your chest and the sangria… It’ll probably be one of the best nights of your life!


…If you’re in Valencia in March, you must go to Las Fallas, one of the biggest parties in Spain. Be prepared to feel the ground shake beneath your feet and your head to spin uncontrollably. This is an adrenaline rush with a few equals and a completely unique experience! 

And well, you can also go to the botanic park, Serrano’s Towels, walk around the historical centre… So many things to do in this amazing city!!!

Don’t miss the chance of experiencing Valencia the City of Flowers and Fire firsthand and improving your Spanish!
