  • By chance found this impressive Museum for us completely unknown with magnificent paintings of various periods and styles along with the Church of San Nicolás de Bari must-see if you go to Valencia and you're looking for something more than Sun, sea and good food. In addition it is free

  • Very good and nice Museum that is free. If that gave the impression of a provintsiynosti, the works are very interesting, the collection is excellent, the Museum left a wonderful impression.

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.
