You will be able to enjoy nature in the middle of the city by having a walk around the Garden of the Turia which starts at Cabecera Park and finishes at the City of Arts and Sciences (Ciudad de las Artes y las Ciencias). La Albufera, a natural park of huge ecological and environmental importance in Europe, is just a few minutes outside of Valencia. Here, you can have fun in a rowboat while you enjoy a wonderful, golden sunset.
Valencia is known for its cuisine, leisure options and sporting events, but above all it is famous for hosting a lively festival: The Falles. This great city also plays host to large cultural activities that are hugely popular with tourists and visitors. The streets are full of modern shops and traditional stores that offer the public a wide variety of regional products.
Arabs introduced the city to rice, and this has resulted in the emergence of Valencia's star dish which is the symbol of Spanish cuisine throughout the world: paella. You can try this dish in one of the restaurants situated at Las Arenas Beach where you can enjoy panoramic views of the sea. Alternatively, you could head to one of the establishments located in the middle of the Albufera Natural Park. 'La horchata' (a sweet, cold drink) is another typical delicacy of this city.
