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).
DO YOU KNOW WHAT?
All the public museums are open on Sunday mornings and bank holidays and they are free these days.
Once you have explored the old town, I suggest you to 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.
I suggest you to spend the morning visiting the largest aquarium in Europe, Ocenogràfic. It represents the most important ecosystems in the world such as the Arctic where a family of belugas is living, the Antarctica plenty of adorable Gentoo Penguins, sharks swimming calmly in the oceans, Dori and Nemo (Surgeon and clown fish) living surrounded of coral reefs and dolphins playing happily with their carers at the dolphinarium.
The Submarine restaurant and the entrance building are two spots you cannot miss.
