Valencia, often overshadowed by its more famous Spanish neighbours, is a treasure trove of culture and one of Spain’s best cities. This underrated gem is not just the birthplace of paella, but a vibrant urban landscape brimming with things to do. From the historic sites and museums celebrating everything from art to science, to the street art that colors its ancient streets, Valencia blends the old with the new with elegant grace. Spend a week or even a month; whether it’s soaking up the sun by the sea, exploring downtown Valencia, or getting lost in off-the-beaten-path spots, there’s plenty to keep you enthralled.

For a deeper dive into local life, roam the sprawling parks, visit bustling markets, and don’t miss out on the cathedrals and hidden gems that make Valencia a top destination not just in Spain but across Europe. Whether you’re here for tapas, cocktails, or cultural exploration, every corner of Spain’s third-largest city promises a new adventure.

How To Get To Valencia

Valencia, Spain’s third largest city, is remarkably well connected to both the rest of Europe and Spain. Although you can’t catch a direct flight from the USA or Canada straight into Valencia Airport, travelers typically land at Madrid Airport and then hop on a fast train right into the heart of Valencia. Both of Valencia’s train stations are conveniently nestled in the city center, making it easy to get to your accommodation via bus, walk, or Uber. For European visitors from the UK, Germany, France, and other hubs, there are multiple flights per week, and daily services from cities like London ensure you’re never too far from this vibrant city. Once at Valencia Airport, a short 25-minute subway ride from the main terminal will whisk you directly to the center of Valencia, placing you right in the pulse of the city almost immediately.

Getting Around Valencia

Navigating Valencia city center is a breeze given its compact layout. Most attractions are within a 25-30 minute walk, making it a great city to explore on foot—just be sure to wear comfortable shoes, especially if you’re visiting in the heat of Valencia in August. For longer distances, the bus network serves as the best option for getting around. Enhance your travel efficiency by downloading the EMT Valencia App (available for both Apple and Android), which helps plan routes from your current location and provides bus timetables.

For fare savings, consider the EMTicket App, where a bundle of 10 tickets costs just €10, breaking down to only €1 per ride. This is a significant discount compared to the €1.50 per trip when paying with cash or card on the bus. Remember, only one person in your group needs to download the app as it allows activating multiple tickets at once, which you can then show to the driver when boarding the bus.
