Full description
Meet your guide at the Port of Valencia. Travel by private car to the City of the Arts and Sciences for a guided tour of this futuristic complex. Spend a leisurely hour learning the stories behind the structures and marvelling at the exteriors of the modern buildings. Next, travel to the historic Old Town of Valencia where your guide will share the stories of the city's history and rich architectural offerings. Pass through Mercado Central, the largest food market in Europe, and take in the sights, sounds, and smells of this bustling center. Finish the tour in one of Valencia's oldest and most emblematic spaces, the historic Arab wall. This is one of the most significant sites in the history of the city, and was the point of conflict between Christians and Moors dating back to the 11th Century and the reign of El Cid. In this intimate venue, indulge in a gastronomic journey with a tasting of Valencia's most important dishes paired with prizewinning regional wines. You will also try traditional Valencian Paella.
