Valencia ExtensionsValencia is the third biggest city in Spain. Although not as visited as Madrid or Barcelona it is a fantastic place to extend your stay. Full of history, culture, great food and superb beaches - the city is our favourite in Spain. Valencia has many great sights - the following are highly recommended:
City of Arts and SciencesV This architectural masterpiece includes an opera house, oceanographic park, science museum, planetarium and IMAX cinema is as impressive from the outside as from within.
Turia GardensThe gardens are in place of the Turia river, which was re-routed from the centre of the city many years ago to prevent the risk of flooding. This long park is great for a relaxing walk or for joining in some of the more strenuous activites taking place.
Valencia BeachThe entire Valencia region from the Costa Blanca to Benicarlo is famous for its beaches and the capital city is no different. Several kilometres long and over a hundred metres wide - there is always plenty of space to relax here. The shelf of the beach extends well in to the sea, making it great for swimming.
El Carmen DistrictValencia's historic neighbourhood is a tight network of narrow streets displaying medieval architecture. A popular place in the evening, the area is thriving with tapas bars and lively street shows.
Las FallasIf you visit the city in mid March you will be here for the Fallas festival. It is a truly unique festival where each nieghbourhood in Valencia creates huge paper mache ninots (dolls) before setting fire to them. This annual celebration is full of great colours, noise and food.
Sport watchingValencia is the home to two top division Spanish football clubs (Valencia and Levante), has a grand prix circuit on its streets, has hosted two recent America's Cups and is also home to a prestigious tennis tournament and Moto GP event. It is a great city for sport lovers.
