Trip Report Vibrant, Visual, Variety-filled Valencia

Jump to last reply

I'm just back from a four-day spontaneous trip to Valenciah: What a lovely city! It's got:

- gorgeous architectural buildings
- a beautiful park that literally flows through the town on a dried riverbed.
- delicious food (paella, sangria, etc...)
- city-filled bike paths
- a wonderful beach with waves!
- fantastic prices
- friendly locals
- good hotels (ours was Primus Valencia)
- a good metro and bus system
- a vibrant old city
- night life with tapas, sangria, etc. in many parts of the city
- very few beggars and homeless (at least of what we saw)
- an airport with a direct metro system that brings you into the city.

Next time, I would: rent a bike for three days. The city is just begging to be explored by bike.

Hope this short trip report helps you on getting an idea of how truly wonderful Valencia is.
