  1. This was a very informative post and definitely puts Valencia on my travel list. Before this I had never even heard of Valencia it sounds like a beautiful hidden gem well worth the visit! Thank you ❤️ Yvette

  2. Pretty much everything in this great post, makes me want to drop everything and head to Valencia. From fresh churros and croissants to art museums, grand squares and the holy grail. Count me in on visiting this awesome city

  3. Valencia looks so beautiful! I can just picture myself enjoying a glass of sangria while eating tapas. The Umbracle is amazing – I can see why it was your favorite spot. The architecture is amazing – the old and the new together is not something I was expecting since Valencia wasn’t really on my radar before. What a great place to relax and explore.

  4. I just love everything about Spain! We visited a few years ago but didn’t make it to Valencia. It’s definitely on our list for our next visit. I can’t wait to try Valencia’s paella. I wonder how different it is from the paella we enjoyed further south? The cathedral is beautiful! It partially looks like Rome’s Colosseum.

  5. What a fantastic round up of sights to see in Valencia. I am a huge history buff so seeing the holy grail would be high on my list of things to do in Valencia. I love the mix of old and new in this city.

  6. Valencia is a very near and dear city to me! My mom is from there and I lived there for 9 months in 2005-2006. It’s perfection. Don’t forget to mention Las Fallas — an elaborate celebration every March. It’s a rich Valencia tradition!

  7. Valencia is very special to me. I spent two summers there in the 1960’s attending the University of Valencia (and again in the 1980’s with my son).. It was then under Franco’s rule and policed by the guardian Civil…quite an experience for we Americans. I lived near the Grand Via and we spent all,of our time in the old part of the city. I have traveled to many places since then but Valencia is special and should be on everyone’s bucket list!

  8. I have been wanting to go to Spain since like forever. This is such a comprehensive guide. Cannot wait to use this and visit Valencia soon.

  9. Thank you for the article!!! I’m very interested in the vegetarian paella restaurant you found and loved but don’t see it listed? I’d love to know!
