Known for being the home of paella, it packs a strong foodie punch with a huge collection of traditionally authentic Spanish restaurants as well as newer Nouveau eateries. Valencia also harbours a vibrant arts and culture scene, with streets framed with Moorish architecture, a handful of classic museums, and a large, winding old quarter filled with knickknack shops and cute cafes.

Valencia is a city with two sides. On the one hand, you have a traditional Spanish city that revolves around culture and heritage, and on the other hand you have a stylish science and arts centre that’s constantly striving to move forward. These two sides are reflected in Valencia accommodation, where there are a selection of grand hotels filled with modern facilities as well as rustic, charming guesthouses and hostels that boast a typical Spanish ambiance. Elsewhere, seaside apartments offer incredible views of the ocean, and cheap city centre studios provide a local experience.
Valencia is a hotbed of contemporary design and old Spanish culture, and there are plenty of things to do under the tourist radar. Start by exploring the Gardens of Turia which are set across the old sunken riverbed. The beautiful green space spans the length of the city, weaving a lively natural habitat through the hustle and bustle of the urban centre. Here, you can cycle and walk around the colourful surroundings, take a picnic and spend an afternoon relaxing amongst the greenery, or get active on the sports fields.
For a cultural afternoon, take a stroll through the city’s old quarter and discover some of the impressive street art that adorns the walls. From large, playful murals to smaller, politically-driven pieces, there’s a new splash of work around every twist and turn.
Lastly, it’s a must to explore the local culinary scene like a local. The city is famed for its paella and you can usually try a delicious recipe in any of the restaurants dotted around. In times-gone-by, wealth was measured by what kind of meat you had in your paella. These days you can pretty much get most varieties of meat, including chicken, duck, prawns, and beef.
Our apartments in Valencia offer a great portal in to the past and provide the perfect base to explore all the finer points of the city from.
