The best of each district in Valencia: Eixample

It is always a real treat to travel to the city of light and colour, Valencia, and stroll through its streets, during the day or night, visiting restaurants, shopping, etc. And what better way to start your trip from the Eixample district.

Eixample of Valencia is situated between the old city of Ciutat Vella, with Quatre Carreres on the south, the west and east Extramuros Pla del Real. It is made up of three districts: El Pla del Remei, Gran Vía and Ruzafa.

In the Eixample district you can find many stately buildings, palaces and modern structures. The main highlights include:

If you are traveling with children

If you are traveling with children, the offerings for them are aplenty: theatre, cinema, cooking workshops, outdoor activities, bike routes, etc. At lunchtime you may not always find the ideal place, or the place you find is not suitable for children. All kids want is to have fun, and in Eixample district, this is certainly possible. For example, it is a very good idea to visit the Mercado de Colón, or any restaurant, bar and cafe in Eixample district where children can enjoy a delicious veggie burger, a sandwich, pizza, etc. Delicious ice cream for dessert or a Valencian horchata.
