What to do in Valencia at the weekend?

Without a doubt, Valencia is one of the best cities for tourists and locals. With almost one million inhabitants, Valencia is home to major historic institutions. But if there is something that characterises this city (apart from Turia river garden), it has to be the street parties that can be enjoyed throughout the year. In this article, we will give you the multitude of possibilities in case you decide to visit Valencia on a weekend.

The truth is, Valencia is a must-see city that should be visited at some point in life. Its fantastic cuisine, culture and heritage with a wide range of leisure and sports are only a tip of the iceberg.

If we move on to the historic part of Valencia, also known as Ciutat Vella, we have to mention rows of narrow streets that are combined with truly traditional districts like Carmen. The starting point is at the emblematic Estación del Norte (North Station), where thousands of travellers have been coming to the city for decades, you can easily reach Plaza de la Reina where the majestic Cathedral stands with its famous tower Micalet. This square is linked with Plaza de la Virgen where Basílica de los Desamparados is located. After visiting the most traditional part of the city, which should also include Torres de Serrano, Quart and Convento del Carmen, it's time to enjoy the excellent Valencian cuisine. To do this, we recommend any of the tapas bars in Carmen, an area with a buzzing atmosphere during the day and night.

Once you visit the main monuments of the city, perhaps on the second day of your stay in Valencia you fancy taking a walk along the old Turia river bed gardens. It has been renovated recently and offers sports and leisure activities. There are also fantastic parks, which are located close to the Ciudad de las Artes and las Ciencias (City of Arts and Sciences) complex.

If you want to enjoy the coastal part of Malvarrosa Beach, this is a perfect place to relax and enjoy an authentic paella at one of the bars in the area.

But Valencia does not end here, because we have a city full of places to discover. In the Cabañal or Ruzafa districts, you can discover the most authentic part of the Valencian culture. The rich culture and tradition in this city means it is now home to many artists and students.
