Best option here is too wander aimless around and take in the great sights along the way. Still pretty hard to get lost, but very enjoyable

You can just walk and walk and keep walking and discover every corner amazing things. Throw away the map and enjoy getting lost in its history.

.... and get lost in the side streets, alleyways of the Old City: the best way to enjoy Valencia,away from the masses of tourists visiting the Cathedral and surrounding areas. A great way to find the right tapas bar or square to enjoy the first drink of the evening.

Just wandering with no particular destination in mind, this city´s historic centre is beautiful with it´s architecture, with its tiled balconies, beautiful windows and cobbled streets. Always a place to stop for a coffee, tapas or something to eat.

Just walk through at least once and it's very historic... Enough said. Highly recommended... Go at least once while shopping.

It's a great place to walk around. The old town is full of shops, restaurants and monuments. The better way to see it all is walking,

Built on the site of a Roman town, the old town is quite large and so has a real mix of developments ranging from the really quite old to the new (why put some 60s style flats there?).
