Valencia City Guide
Valencia Travel Tips
- Spring and fall are the best parts of the year to visit Valencia. The weather is perfect, and some of the best cultural goings-on take place during those seasons (like the Falles festival in March).
- Carry your passport at all times—you are often required to bring it out when paying with a credit card.
- Tapas is typically a bit cheaper if you opt to stand at the bar instead of sitting at a table. So push your way in and mingle with the locals.
- Rent a bike to get around. Use the extensive network of paths in the Turia Gardens as you make your way through the city.
