City guide : a weekend in Valencia
This weekend, I went to Valencia with a friend. I didn’t know the city at all, and came back charmed and in love. If you want to visit this lovely Spanish town too, here is my city guide !
What to visit in Valencia ?
The Cathedral’s tower
Located in the heart of Ciutat Vella, the cathedral is the place you can’t miss. For only 2€, you can climb at the top of its tower and get an amazing view on the city of Valencia. Yes, the 15 minutes climbing accelerate the cardiac rhythm, you get red and out of breath, but it’s largely worth the shot when you have such a view on Valencian roofs, the greenery belt and the sea at the horizon.
The city of Arts and Sciences
Ciutat Vella : Mercat central and carrer de Dalt
The old town of Valencia is also full of treasures. In the morning, go the the central market to get elated by colors of the fruits and vegetables, smells of the pastries (or meats !). Go take an orxata and drink it walking through the stalls.
Just after, I advise you to have a walk in the streets of Ciutat Vella. Pretty and colored downtown, the Ciutat Vella of Valencia offers a really charming walk, where the camera wants to capture every buildings facades and architectural details.
Where to eat in Valencia?

To eat a very traditional paella de Valencia (and drink the aqua of Valencia that goes with it !), I recommend you the medieval restaurant. It does not seem like much in the day, but the service is excellent, the food very tasty, and the prices are fair !
To have a quick and tasty breakfast, Granier is the best place. They do fresh pastries, tasty bread, and good orxata. What else ?
I decided not to mention the two other restaurants we did because I was disappointed of the service. Meanwhile, I used the hashtags #valenciagram and #valenciafood to find hotspots, which I recommend you to do !
