    Go to the beach

    It was very nice, even in december when we got there. We had about 24° and you could chill out at the beach.

    Insider Tip:There are a lot of tapas bars in Valencia. Just enter one and try the food, it is delicious.

    Las Fallas

    Went to Valencia for the Las Fallas finale. It was a great experience. The beach was awesome too. Oceanografic was good too. However, the streets were in a mess after all the partying.

    Valencia, Spain

    My husband and I really enjoy Valencia and its culture. The huge beach was a great site to see and spend the afternoon. The parks were also very nice and enjoyed touring the city with all the sites.

    Insider Tip:Enjoy an afternoon with some wine and snacks on the beach. Just beware of the people wanting to give you a massage and sell you beer! :)

    So Much to See!

    If you're looking for a spot on the coast of Spain that is very cultured but also tourist friendly, Valencia is a great place to go! There is A LOT to see here and you can easily spend several days in the city and never run out of things to do. The Arts & Sciences center will take up a good chunk of your day all on its own.

    Amazing city for a long weekend break!

    Great city with a great variety of stuff to do, excellent weather (it was 27 degrees in mid-October!), great food and really safe. They could have more public toilets available but that is the only thing I could moan at.

    Insider Tip:I wouldn't rush into buying Valencia Touist Card - although it gives you discounts on public transport and free access to some of the museums, the city centre and places in the surroundings are surprisingly 'walkable' and many museums are free to enter on Sundays anyway!
