Valencia is Spain's third largest city, and is a very modern and clean city with the public transportation to match, although Valencia city centre is easy enough to cover on foot. If you want to make the most of it then wander around the pedestrian friendly old town or to take a trip all the way down to the coast along the dried up River bed you'll need to rent a bike!
There are two markets worth taking a trip to in this city. Within the old city limits its Mercado Central at number 6, Plaza del Mercado. This is a beautiful building set amongst boulevards - strewn with orange trees and ornate churches, with light shows bounding off the intricate stained windows. Inside the stalls stock everything edible that locals and tourists could ever want. Valencia is a city that perfectly mixes the old with the new so a trip to Valencia must include a day around the ultra modern City of Arts and Sciences, housing a planetarium, a zoo and an amazing Imax cinema. If you find yourself near to Valencia around March then their yearly festival Las Fallas is not to be missed. A week of partying and fireworks, Valencia really comes into its own during their celebration of the Saint Jose.
