Valencia – Mixing Exciting With Serious

Like the majority of Europe, Spain is one of those countries which have so much history in them it’s sometimes hard to tell where the old ends and the new begins.

However, there is a city in this country that draws a perfectly visible line between its vast history and the modern trends, and its name is Valencia.

Choices, Choices…

Valencia is situated at the east coast of Spain, and you can bet it uses this position to benefit as much as it can in terms of tourism.

For example, accommodation prices here vary, but there isn’t a big chunk of options.

There aren’t a lot of hostels in Valencia, but those that exist cost around 40-60 EUR for a double room. Hotel room prices move from 35 to 70 EUR.

On the other hand, there are a lot of eating options in Valencia. Street foods are around 6 EUR while tapas and cheaper meals cost as high as 12 EUR. A fancy meal with wine will take anywhere from 25-35 EUR out of your wallet.

Two Sides Of The Same Coin

We can’t really say Valencia excels at only one thing. In fact, this city can fulfill the needs of most visitors, regardless of their preference.

Those who enjoy history and spending their time relaxing will appreciate Plaza de la Virgin, where most buildings boast a Gothic architecture. Also, make sure to check our Calle Caballero, which is the hotspot for Valencia’s most social and fashionable residents.

If you’re more of an adventure person yourself, don’t skip La Tomatina, a festival which is based around throwing tomatoes. Also, if you find yourself in Valencia in March, you can participate in the biggest party in the city – Las Fallas.
