Historic Walking Tour of Valencia

Streets and Squares in Valencia
Valencia is a unique blend of ultra-modern buildings existing side by side with a well-preserved historic center. There's also a distinct culture here that reveals itself in the city's gastronomy—after all, this is the place that gave the world paella. In Valencia, a perfect pastime is strolling by the historic churches and castle ruins of the city center while breaking for refreshments like horchata (a sugary drink made with tiger nuts) and agua de Valencia (a champagne/liquor/orange-juice cocktail). 

On a walking tour of the historic city, you'll visit major highlights like the Plaza Del Ayuntamiento, where Valencia's baroque City Hall is located; the Mercado Central, which, having opened in 1839, is one of the oldest municipal markets in Europe; the 15th-century Llotja de la Seda, a Valencian-gothic fortress that was once a financial center when Valencia dominated the silk trade; and the UNESCO World Heritage Valencia Cathedral, a 13th-century basilica.

Throughout the tour, your guide will reveal historical and cultural insight into all of the landmarks you visit.
