About Valencia

Click here for the best places to stay in Valencia

Famous for the oranges, being the home of paella and some truly stunning modern architecture, Valencia is a fantastic place to head to if you want to get away for a couple of days. There's a dynamism here which reenergises. It's vibrant enough to be mildly chaotic, yet there's plenty of peace and beauty as well. Our selection of the best places to stay in Valencia are mainly situated in the heart of the town, close to all that it has to offer.

Some of Valencia's energy is due to the massive construction projects undertaken here in the last ten years. Even if you don't have an aptitude for maths or science yourself, a visit to the City of Arts and Sciences will leave you with a very healthy respect for what man can create - with a little help from M and S. Just look at the curves on the Palacio de las Artes - that's calculus. Numbers transformed into beauty. And all this makes Valencia a really fascinating destination. This area is also where you can find many of the more modern museums.

As well as profiling the modern, Valencia also presents the historic in its best light. Valencia's old town has plenty of charm - this was once the capital of a kingdom. The old centre, the Barri del Carme, around the Cathedral, is where you can see the colourful mix of old and new. The Cathedral itself is a hotchpotch of Gothic, Baroque and Romanesque extravagance! This is a great area to visit both day and night.

And, though the locals tend to underplay it, Valencia is also right on the Med., with miles of beach just a short trip from the centre of town.

Valencia is sluggish with the heat by August, but beautiful and sunny in September and October. But the best time of year to visit is Spring - for the famous Fallas de San Jose, when the city really opens up.

City Break Valencia

If you're not in town for long definitely pass through the City of Arts and Sciences and the old centre, and try to make time for the market, the Silk Exchange building, the old river-bed turned park, and, assuming you're not here for the Fallas themselves, one of the Fallas Museums. And you'll probably want to try the local tapas and of course paella. The traditional version, Paella Valenciana, is with chicken and/ or rabbit, Paella de Marisco comes with seafood, and Paella Mixta is both meat and seafood.

  • If your tastes lead toward the luxurious, one of the best places to stay in Valencia is the Hospes Palau de la Mar, a restored palace, in the heard of the stylish L'Eixample district.
  • Also luxurious, but with a very modern design twist, the Caro Hotel is another sleek city break spot. Converted from a townhouse in the heart of the old town, Caro has an excellent Mediterranean restaurant and a lively roof terrace.

Valencia by the Sea

The most popular city beaches are just north of the port, but there's also El Saler and Devesa, which are a bit further away, but worth the effort. Just north of Valencia there's also a region known for its hot springs.

  • If you're here to relax, Mas de Canicatti is for you. This converted farmhouse just outside Valencia is now a beautifully modern spa hotel. Putting you right in amongst the oranges with spectacular views.
