Exploring Valencia's treasures in a day.
Start your day at the City of Arts and Sciences, an iconic architectural ensemble not to be missed. If you have extra time, we recommend visiting the Science Museum, the Oceanographic Museum and the Hemisferic, each offering unique experiences for all ages. As you wander around the complex, you can admire Santiago Calatrava's imposing architecture for free, but remember that tickets are required to enter the complex.
Continue your tour by entering the beautiful Turia Garden, an extensive urban park that stretches 10 km from the City of Arts and Sciences to the Bioparc. This green oasis gives you the opportunity to relax, exercise or simply enjoy a pleasant stroll surrounded by nature. Inside the garden, don't miss the Gulliver Park, where the little ones can have fun on the slides and games integrated into the giant figure of the famous literary character.
Continue on your way to the imposing Valencia Cathedral, known as La Seu. This majestic Gothic building, built in the 13th century, is an impressive testament to medieval art and architecture. Be sure to check visiting hours and don't miss the opportunity to climb the Miguelete tower, from where you can enjoy breathtaking panoramic views of the city.
To immerse yourself in local life, visit the Central Market and the Colón market. The Central Market is a magnificent example of Valencian modernism and houses more than 1,000 stalls where you can find a wide variety of fresh produce. On the other hand, the Colón market, renovated and modernised, offers a different experience with its restaurants, shops and establishments.
Make a stop at the Plaza del Ayuntamiento, where you can admire the impressive Town Hall building and enjoy the vibrant atmosphere of the square. Don't forget to visit the Origen del Valencianismo plaque, honouring the birth of Valencia Football Club on the same spot.
