5. Valencia: 3-Hour Grand Bike Tour & City of Arts and Sciences
The first place we will visit is where it all began, in the old town of Valencia. A unique place in Valencia where you can cycle through the narrow, winding streets of the city centre and soak up the history that sets this place apart. The important contribution of the Romans and Arabs have added their culture to this vibrant city and Pelican Bike will be happy to show you some of its gems. Whether it is the Cathedral of Valencia, the Plaza de la Virgen, the Plaza de la Reina, the Town Hall of Valencia, the Palace of Marqués de Dos Aguas, the central market, the famous Lonja de Valencia, the Torres de Quart or the Puerta de los Serranos. This tour gives you the opportunity to see everything and to learn about these interesting historical sites.
After enjoying the busy concrete jungle, we will take our bikes and head to the City of Arts and Sciences. We will cycle along the unique river Turia, but how can you cycle along a river? That's a good question, but the river Turia is actually the perfect place for cycling. There used to be water here, but as this river flooded the city many times, the government decided to divert it and make a park along the course of the old river. So this garden is the perfect place to discover Valencia by bike. Many exotic plants and trees grow in this 9 kilometres long park and it is the perfect place to enjoy a healthy exercise in the open air. So, in addition to Pelican Bike's bike tours, you'll see football pitches, jogging tracks and a variety of sports machines. But this park is not only used for sport, it is also a place for recreation and people like to gather here and enjoy a fun picnic in the sun.
