A vibrant city, with the glistening Mediterranean coastline on its doorstep. Combine culture and beach on holidays to Valencia. Start in the historic centre, which is bursting with character. Then escape to the Valencian coast, for a relaxing beach escape.
Spend some time exploring the old town, with its striking architecture, World Heritage sites and souk-like streets – which provide a glimpse into the city’s Moorish past. If you visit this area in the day, make sure you come back after-dark, when the cafes, bars and restaurants are abuzz. Dining out and socialising are a big part of Valencia’s culture, with tantalising tapas and long, leisurely meals a daily occurrence. A trip to Valencia wouldn’t be complete without sampling flavoursome paella, the Valencian way. Head to the coast to enjoy it in a beachfront setting.
