The charming old city of Valencia is the third most important city in Spain and is home to 1,832,270 residents. It is located four hours from the south of Barcelona and three hours from the east of Madrid on the Mediterranean Sea. Not many cities are like Valencia, it is able to combine the remnants of its past with innovative and avant-garde infrastructure from the new millennium quite harmoniously. Its all about trade, culture, cinema, theatre, museums and business.
What makes the Valencia coast so uniquely attractive and the city itself such a popular tourist destination is the fine sand, clean water, vast sea, coastal mountains, ancient monuments, views and cultural attractions? One of the most outstanding beaches in Valencia is the Canet d’En Berenguer where the coastline is very leisurely and residential. Other good beaches are La Malvarrosa and Levante where there is a wide array of options for dining and enjoying a quiet evening. Nature is predominant in the south of Valencia at Saler Beach and the L’Albufera Nature Reserve.
With a dry Mediterranean climate Valencia has short and very mild winters and long hot and dry summers. The active months are September and October as the weather is perfect for beach outings but the absolutely best time to visit Valencia is during the spring. Public transportation in the form of rail and bus services are available in Valencia and for a more adventurous way of exploring the city there is a bicycle sharing system known as Valenbisi open to both locals and tourists. The gastronomic culture of Valencia includes typical dishes like Paella which is a simmered rice dish made with either seafood or meat, usually chicken or rabbit meat and the Spanish omellette Fartons Bunyols. It is also where the cold beverage orxata originated from which is popular in all parts of the world. Interesting routes, great food and lots of adventure awaits you when you visit Valencia.
