Valencia  (Yolanda)

At the end of November 2016, I went to Valencia for 3 days for a congress. Although I didn't have much time to visit the city, I could take a guided tour of the historic centre and a night walk in the area of the City of Arts and Sciences. This first approach was a pleasant surprise that made it clear that I have to return soon to get to know the city and its surroundings better.


Getting There & Around 

We went to Valencia by train from Barcelona, with the Euromed line. The journey, from Sants station in Barcelona to Joaquin Sorolla station in Valencia, with stops in Tarragona and Castellon, takes between 3 and 3.5 hours. The seats are very comfortable and spacious, leaving plenty of space to stretch your legs. Luggage can be placed on a shelf above the seats or in the compartments between the cars.

Where to Stay & Eat 

We stayed at the Hotel AC Valencia (Marriott), a 4-star hotel with all the comforts of its category: well-kept rooms with minibar and desk, bathroom with a large bathtub, and a good breakfast buffet. Located at the confluence of Calle Menorca and Avenida de Francia, it is a five minute walk from the City of Arts and Sciences.

Most of the meals were organized by the congress at the university, but we did have dinner a couple of days in some restaurants:

What to See & Do 

Despite the limited time we had, we could discover some of the main hidden treasures in the historical center of the city, as well as take a tour around the well-known City of Arts and Sciences.
