a great area to wander through, lots of shops and restaurants

Narrow shaded streets. Busy at times quiet at others. We arrived by tourist bus and wandered through looking at shops, and having a coffee or Coke in the bars

We were there for "Las Fallas" and stayed right by the Ayuntaminto. This was ideal for experiencing "La Mascleta" every day of the festival as well as the processions and burning of the ninots on the final night.

We don´t have many of these back home... so a stroll around streets with hundreds years of history is quite nice!

Find yourself a GPS, kidding, and go into the casco antiguo. The buildings, plazas, museums, churches, restaurants, cafes and yes, even hotel caro, that you will find here are amazing. A must see when in Valencia. Don't miss it.

Nice for a walk! I was in this area during a visit to Valencia for the Las Fallas festival back in 2006. It is really nice to just walk around and get a coffee or food or just to explore.

The Casco Antiguo is the area around the Cathedral and the Basilica of the Virgin of the Helpless, as well as the Plaza de la Virgen, where one can see the very beautiful fountain. This area can be walked by visitors and one can find many restaurants where one can eat and be refreshed. There are also many tourist stores.

I guess you have to know where you are going but if, like us, you just wander into the barrio looking for the atmosphere, its a little like walking through a pedestrianized suburb of east London. Not recommended unless you are a fan of graffiti!

You can go to the top of the old gate where bows and arrows were shot. You can also shop or stop and get an espresso or coffee. Tge views are amazing!

You can only really know Valencia after you have wandered round the Carmen district looking at all the great independent shops and stopped off for tapas, ice cream, horchata or (lunchtime only!) paella. There is also some fantastic architecture here and history around every corner. The downside for some is that graffiti is common. However, there is some artistic and... More

I love the old part of town, with all the restored old buildings, very clean and lots of tapas bars to meander around.
