Valencia City Tour
A tour carefully designed to discover the highlights of Valencia. From modern architecture to a medieval downtown. Valencia is a modern city which has witnessed lots of different people throughout history: Iberians, Romans, Moors, Christians…For a long period of time Valencia was part of the “Silk Route”. Surrounded by a fertile area known as l’Horta, the city is renowned by the quality of its fruits and vegetables. Even one of the most appreciated orange varieties in the world is named after the region. The most popular Spanish dish in the whole world was born here: The Valencian Paella. After a big flood in the 1950’s the Turia river was diverted from the city, as a result an enormous park was built in the former riverbed. The futuristic “City of Arts and Sciences” designed by Calatrava welcomes the visitors.
From the Valencia Cruise Terminal we will take a vehicle for a panoramic tour. A photo stop at the “City of Arts and Sciences” is a must. You will be very impressed by this architecture. Then we will drive along the former riverbed and around the old town, passing by the bullring, railway station, City Hall, and some of the gates of the medieval city wall. We will stop next to the Rococo Marqués de Dos Aguas Palace to start our walking tour. You can explore on your own at the Market Hall, a gorgeous Art Nouveau building where you can feel the atmosphere of the city. Then we will visit a masterpiece of the civil gothic art, the “Silk Exchange”, a World Heritage Site. We will keep strolling through the narrow streets to get to the most popular squares in the City: Plaza de la Reina and Plaza de la Virgen. There we will visit the Cathedral, including the chapel where a relic, identified as the famous Holy Grail, is venerated. Some free time will be given for some shopping or a refreshment.
