Where past and present meet
The old city centre is a maze of cobbled streets packed with Roman remains, ancient churches and imposing archways. But there’s a modern side to Valencia too. The city’s prime attraction is its immense, futuristic Ciudad de las Artes y las Ciencias. This distinctive cultural centre is where art, science and nature meet. Designed by Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava, this building put Valencia on the map. Valencia is not only the ideal destination for weekend holidays, but also as the starting point for a longer vacation in Spain. Treat yourself: book a flight to Valencia now!
Experience the variety of Valencia
In addition to the charming city centre, wide beaches and modern architecture, Valencia is a city where you can also enjoy fantastic cuisine. Here you’ll find everything from authentic paella restaurants on the beach to small tapas bars in the El Carmen neighbourhood, and from gourmet, Michelin-starred restaurants in the city to trendy bistro-style restaurants in the Ruzafa neighbourhood. The bars in the old town will also tempt you with their special local drink, the Agua de Valencia cocktail. It’s made from gin, vodka, cava, sugar and local oranges and promises to turn your night into a ‘buena noche’!

Curated for you
ARTS & CULTURE
Here you won’t find watery sangria, concrete bunker hotels or drunk teens, but medieval fortress towns by the sea or on a mountaintop, unspoilt nature and a hundred kilometres of golden sandy beaches. Above the overpopulated Costa Blanca lies the Orange Blossom Coast, extending on both sides of Valencia. In spring, the aroma of oranges fills the air and in summer Spaniards flock here to enjoy their holidays. Welcome to Spain’s least known costa.
ARTS & CULTURE
It has become a reliable formula: host a major event or commission a world famous architect and hey presto, a completely forgotten city is back on the map. It worked for Lisbon, Barcelona and Bilbao. Then, it was the turn of the capital of the Orange Blossom Coast. And the formula proved successful once again: the City of Arts and Sciences has become the top attraction in Valencia.
