Full description
The first place you will visit on this comprehensive Valencia bike tour is the centre of it all, the old city of Valencia. As you bike Valencia through the narrow winding streets of the city centre, you can imagine that history has been written here. The Romans and the Moors have added their culture to this vibrant city. Whether it's the Plaza de la Virgin, the Serranos Gate, the Mercado Central, the Valencia Cathedral, the Plaza de la Reina, the Valencia City Hall or the Marués de Dos Aguas Palace, this Valencia bike tour gives you the opportunity to see it all.

After enjoying the hustle and bustle of the old city, take your bikes and head to the City of Arts and Sciences. It's really the journey that is the real destination, as you will be biking along a river that is unique in it's outline. The river Turia is a special place that is made for riding a bicycle. It used to be a river, but since this river flooded the city many times, the government decided to dry it out and make a park out of it. So this river is the perfect place to discover Valencia by bike. Many exotic plants and trees grow in this 9-kilometre long park and it is the perfect spot to enjoy the outdoors.

At the end of the park, the impressive buildings of the City of Arts and Sciences can be found. They were built by the Valencian architect Santiago Calatrave and Felix Candela. In 1996, the construction of this huge complex started, and in 2005, the Palau de les Arts Reina Sofia was inaugurated as the last building of the 12 Treasures of Spain. Now you can admire six different architectural gems including the opera house and performing arts center, the El Palau de les Arts Reina Sofia, and the Agora or the L’Umbracle. The El Museu de les Ciènces Pricipe Felipe is a special place, famous for it's modern approach to science and the Oceanografic is visited by many tourists every year. This aquarium is not just any aquarium, it allows you to travel around the planet’s main oceans and seas. You can find sharks, Beluga whales, sea lions and manta rays in this huge water world, and it even has it's own dolphin show. If you have still some time left, you should not leave out this Valencian attraction and pay it a visit after your Valencia bike tour ends.
