The Old City
Valencia's Old Town is characteristic of the city itself, being the oldest part and considered to be the historical, cultural and nerve centre of the city.The old town consists of 6 major districts: La Seu, La Xerea, El Carmen, El Pilar, The Market and San Francisco.
Each district is different, with a blend of ancient and modern that cannot be found in other parts of the city. Most of its streets retain their original layout and a stroll through this district reveals the history through its museums, monuments and emblematic buildings. Examples include the Plaza de la Reina, the Cathedral, the Town Hall Square, the Silk Market, the Central Market and the Museum of Modern Art.
Ciutat Vella is one of the top tourist districts but also widely frequented by Valencians due to its wide range of flavoursome cuisine and great entertainment.
Eixample is the top neighbourhood of the city, which is evident from its boutiques and family businesses, as well as its intimate atmosphere. The area consists of the districts of Pla del Remei, Gran Vía and Ruzafa and is characterized by the layout of its streets with square chamfered buildings and parallel running streets. The buildings reflect this bourgeois area of Valencia, with renovated stately palaces in neighbouring communities.

All this is neatly combined with quieter streets and residential areas.
