I flew down to Spain in December for 2 weeks to hang out with my friend Greg and his girlfriend Nellie. At the end of my trip we took a train to Valencia and spent a weekend there exploring all the things to do in Valencia and based ourself in a stylish Apartment we rented via AirBnB.

After renting bikes we cycled into the old town and visited the Mercado Central, the Cathedral of Valencia and enjoyed a long ride down the Jardin del Turia to the port and the wide beach. Of course we couldn’t miss out on the typical Paella accompanied by a cold beer.

We finished of our stay with a visit to the City of Arts and Sciences, a futuristic complex full of interesting architecture – the perfect spot to photograph the sunset!

As always feel free to leave more recommendations in the comment section below for future visitors of Valencia and the Costa Blanca (though Valencia is not part of the Costa Blanca)!

  1. Hey guys – please be aware that Valencia is not part of the Costa Blanca, it is just part of a series named "Costa Blanca" 😉

  2. Being myself from Valencia, I think this guide is very useful, altough obviously you missed some nice places, but I understand that time is limited. I was quite surprised that you found a place where to eat real paella because most of the time tourists end up being scammed with some really disgusting paellas (mostly in the city center), which in the end is harmful for our city's reputation. Also you went to the most iconic place to drink orxata 🙂

    Very good job, guys!

  3. Very cool video lads! Im doing a small road trip end of February from Edinburgh to alicante and im going to take a day out to drive there! Looks very cool!
