Why visit Valencia?

Spectacular playas

Just One of Valencia’s biggest draws is its beaches, which are famously clean, family-friendly and, most surprisingly, relatively undeveloped! Well connected by public transport, we highly recommend taking the time to enjoy one of Valencia’s spectacular playas.

Of course, there’s much more to Valencia’s cityscape than its incredible beaches. On your school trip to Valencia, make sure you take some time to visit the iconic City of Arts and Sciences, which has become something of a symbol of the city. Here you’ll find an opera house, planetarium and oceanographic park, as well as much, much more!

And don’t forget to take some time to explore Valencia’s historic centre. One of the oldest cities in Spain, Valencia was founded during the Roman period and exploring the city’s architecture will help you to discover its history. Highlights include the spectacular cathedral and the Llotja de la Seda, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the finest examples of Gothic civil architecture in Europe.

Delicious paellas

The home of paella and other delicious dishes, your students certainly won’t go hungry in Valencia.

The city is surrounded by the Horta of Valencia, an agricultural region that supplies the city with the incredible produce such a capital of gastronomy requires, including oranges, rice and vegetables.

On your school trip to Valencia, your students will have plenty of opportunities to enjoy the local cuisine and discover the importance of food in Spanish culture, plus how it varies from region to region - for example, the food in the Valencian region will share similarities to the Catalonian cuisine found in Barcelona, but with key local twists and differences. 

Awesome pyrotechnics

Valencia is famous for its fiestas, but the most famous of them is Las Fallas, which has been declared Intangible Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO.

For the first 19 days of March, Valencians flock to the Plaza del Ayuntamiento at 2pm for the Mascletà – an explosive barrage of firecrackers and fireworks. The main celebrations take place between 15th and 19th March, when the huge falles are erected in the city’s streets. These will be set on fire on the evening of the 19th March, which is known as La Cremà.

The falles usually take a year to plan and construct and often represent public figures and celebrities. The celebrations are unique to the Valencian Community and an important element of the local culture.
