planes para un día en Valencia.Qué hacer en Valencia un día
If you have just one day to discover Valencia, do not worry, I suggest a program for you to make the most of your time. In just one day you will have a general idea of Valencia, the land of contrast.

Get a map and start the adventure!

I recommend a visit to “Ciutat Vella” ,where you  can wander through the main squares and most symbolic spots. From Torres de Serranos (Serranos´ Gate) to Estación del Norte (North Station) you can not miss going to venues such as: Plaza de la Virgen (Virgin Square) The Basílica de los Desamparados, Almoina, Plaza de la Reina (Queen Square), The Cathedral, Plaza Redonda (Round Square), Plaza Lope de Vega, Mercado Central (Central Maket), Lonja de la Seda (Silk Exchange Building), Museo Nacional de Cerámica González Martí (The National Ceramics Museum Gonzalez Marti), Plaza del Ayuntamiento (The City Hall), Plaza de Toros (The bull ring) and Estación del Norte.

If you decide to start the tour the reverse, from the North Station to Serranos´Gate, you can stop at the nearest tourist info to ask for any information about the city (Address: Plaza del Ayuntamiento, nº 1)


 

UNMISSABLE SPOTS

  • Visit the Central Market, one of the largest markets in Europe with fresh produce from the Valencia orchard and all the flavour and aromas from the Mediterranean.

Once you have explored the old town, I suggest you turn the tour around by 180 degrees. It is time to discover the futuristic area of Valencia, The City of Arts and Sciences.There,  you will walk around and you will have a lot of activities to enjoy such as tridimensional films at the Hemisfèric, scientific workshops at the Science Museum Príncipe Felipe or educational talks at the Ocenogràfic, the largest aquarium in Europe.
