Think Valencia and you might think oranges
True, you’ll find citrus trees lining its sweeping boulevards, but there’s much more than Vitamin C in the new Valencia – a modern city of jaw-dropping modern architecture (in its brand new cultural quarter), laid-back Sunday brunches and full-on bars that never seem to close. Fly here and you’ll say ‘Viva’.

The City of Arts and Science is typical of Valencia’s forward-thinking ambition, and sheer architectural audacity. To best appreciate this whole complex of stunning modern buildings at the city centre’s edge, you’ll have to stand well back. Valencia Tourist Information - things to see and do

Must eat at:
Make a foodie pilgrimage to the Barrio Rufaza for Torrijos, which puts the accent firmly on the Med as it mixes-up a Mediterranean fusion of seafood-enhanced favourites. If that’s not enough to tempt you, it has 25,000 bottles of wine in its cellars.
Must be there for:
The annual festival of Fallas is too complex to explain in just a few lines, save for our recommendation to come to Valencia in March, when the whole city is consumed by it. Look forward to amazing papier mache models, intense local rivalries, beautiful pageants and fireworks three times a day...
· If you’ve ever fancied a full-on food fight, book your slot at La Tomatina in Bunol, which is the first Wednesday of August - for messy, tomato-soaked fun
· Try “Agua de Valencia” drink and a “Mistela” shot after dinner. Both are very sweet
