The city is just a short 20 minute trip from the airport, making Valencia Airport a very convenient port of call whilst the train station is centrally located making it a great choice for domestic travel from elsewhere in Spain.
With Barcelona just a few hours north and Alicante a short distance south, there is plenty of exploring to do and that's without even stepping foot in the gorgeous interior of Catalonia, away from the coastline. Be sure to organise car hire and truly make the most of your time in this part of Spain.
Sightseeing in Valencia
Valencia city centre is a hive of activity with plenty of interesting attractions. Start exploring with a trip to the City of Arts and Science complex which is packed with things to see and do from a Science Museum to an IMAX cinema, all enclosed within an unusual but stunning building.
Head towards the old part of the city and discover the Barri del Carme. This area boasts plenty of shops and cafes housed within historic buildings to keep you amused. It comes alive at night but during the day you can relax on quiet terraces.
Home to a vast array of monuments and architecture including The Llotja and Torres de Quart, hop in a hire car in Valencia and survey it all!
Day Trips From Valencia
Why not visit the attractive coastal town of Denia, just a short 1 hour jaunt away by car? Explore the old castle and drink in the stunning views from the top before whiling your afternoon away on a sun-baked beach.
The Serra Calderona Natural Park is just a short journey away and well worth some of your time. Scale the highest point of the mountains, El Gorgo, which stands at 907m high. Speckled with caves and gorges, this is a really beautiful area.
Drive up the coast and take in the endless delights of Barcelona. Gaze in wonderment at the modernist buildings and take a look at the Gaudi centre. Take a wander down Las Ramblas too and soak up the fun loving atmosphere!
Packed with over 300 species of wildlife, Terra Natura is a fun place to visit for all ages. Located close to Murcia why not combine your trip with an afternoon at Mar Menor, a gorgeous natural lagoon on the outskirts of the city?
