Full description
On this full day tour visit buildings and the most representative places in Valencia that you can enjoy in two ways: a tourist bus tour and then a guided walking tour through the historical center. To end this day, delight in an exquisite paella lunch and other typical dishes. 

It is recommended you to take the tourist bus early in the morning so you have 2 routes to get to know all facets of the city: the historical Valencia and Valencia maritime routes. You’ll meet the historical and monumental area first: the old town, city center, and many other sites of interest as the Bioparc, the Congress Palace, or the Museum of Fine Arts. With the second option you’ll go to the coastal area: the city of arts and sciences, the port of Valencia, and Malvarrosa beach among others. The duration is 90 minutes each route, and you can combine both routes as you prefer, up and down at any stop, as many times as you want on the same day. 

In the afternoon, immerse in the history of Valencia to get to know its buildings and monumental places. Go across the narrow streets of the old town with a local guide, who will tell you interesting anecdotes and all about the secrets of the city. First of all you`ll see the Ayuntamiento square with its beautiful central fountain and the grandiose buildings that surround it. Then you’ll visit Plaza de la Virgen square and its monumental buildings like the Cathedral, Miguelete, the Virgen de los Desamparados’s Church, and Almonia Museum. You’ll cover the lively Plaza de la Reina square and the ancient La Paz Street and Barcas Street. You will be surprised with the baroque of the “Dos Aguas Marquis” Palace and the historic palaces of Carmen’s neighborhood. 
To end this intense day, relax your senses in a cozy restaurant located in front of the Quart Towers. There, delight on a Valencian meal that includes selected fresh sea products and many from the Valencia Garden. You’ll be able to choose from Valencian paella, Arroz a Banda, fish, meat or duck. Then, a delicious homemade dessert, and 1 beverage per person. During July and August dinner will be served instead of lunch.

Take time out of your trip to get to know the essential places of Valencia and taste the typical dishes in just one day.
