Overall Guide : Valencia is one of the liveliest cities in Spain. Its beautiful beaches provide visitors with many opportunities for sun bathing, parasailing, diving and surfing. In addition to water sports, one can also indulge in activities such as golf, cycling and... more tennis. The City of Arts and Science is designed by the famous architect Santiago Calatrava and features a Science Museum, a Planetarium, an IMAX cinema and an Aquarium.   One of the most popular areas to experience Valencia’s famed nightlife is the Barrio del Carmen. This area is filled with trendy bars and restaurants as well as many old buildings dating back to the Roman times. The Cathedral was built between the thirteenth and fifteenth centuries and is a major tourist attraction. La Lonja de la Seda has been designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and should definitely feature on your sightseeing itinerary. In the month of March, Valencia celebrates the unique festival of Fallas.

Overall Guide : Don't miss the Oceanografico. The aquarium is truly spectacular, you'll stand there open-mouthed. I don't recommend it if you're only there for one day because it takes about three hours to get around and that would leave you little time... more to visit the rest of the city. Valencia is lovely, though.

Overall Guide : It's an interesting city from a historical and architectural point-of-view, both the ancient and the new ultra-modern architecture is interesting, on the bed of the river which was diverted in the sixties. It's worth spending a long weekend there.
