City of Mediterranean Light

A charming old city originally founded as a Roman colony, Valencia is the country’s third-largest urban center. The birthplace of paella, the city hosts numerous festivals throughout the year and has a lively nightlife that attracts young weekend revelers from around the country. A highlight of most visitors’ holiday itinerary is the City of Arts and Sciences, a massive architectural complex designed largely by Santiago Calatrava, a local architect of international renown. Valencia is vibrant and friendly, with a historic quarter easily explored on foot or by bicycle. Take a peek at our world travel planner: Valencia and its charms laid bare and easily scheduled.

Where to stay in Valencia

The Valencia city center is hugged by a river bed-turned park that leads down to the City of Arts and Sciences and harbor area. Stay along the river to be no more than a pleasant stroll away from some of the main neighborhoods and attractions. The popular El Carmen neighborhood, one of the oldest in the city, is known for its bohemian atmosphere and historical architecture, making it a popular area for daytime tourism and lively nightlife. For a selection of newer hotels and well-known shops, you can opt to stay in the city's commercial district of Colon Street, only a short walk from the old center and well-connected by the metro. For a laid-back, sun-filled retreat, El Cabanyal is a quiet residential neighborhood near the city's main beach.
