Most people appreciate Valencia for its gorgeous white sand beaches and unique seascapes. However, beach vacations are far from the only pastime option. The city is rich in sights that should be definitely included in an excursion route. Most sightseeing excursions in Valencia start from Queen's Square in the Old Town. Here is the famous Valencia Cathedral - the storage place of the Holy Grail.
You can observe the sights on your own, but it is better to do it with a English-speaking guide. The list of locations popular among tourist includes:
- Silk Exchange;
- Palacio de Aguas Corrientes;
- oceanographic center;
- the ancient city of Sagunto;
- Museum of Fine Arts;
- City of Arts and Sciences.
Valencia is also one of the greenest cities in Spain. You can check this during an excursion to the Royal Gardens - a nature reserve with a collection of rare plants. Valencians are very sensitive about siesta. For them, this is almost a sacred ritual that applies to most establishments in the city. So, 1001guide recommends planning museum excursions before 1 pm or after 5 pm.
