Old town area of Valencia. A maze of streets but some of the best bars and restaurants. Be sure to try the bars in Placa Lisboa, San Juan near Tossal and Negrita on Calletrava. All great. See separate reviews on restaurants. Good vibe in the area, worth visiting or staying in the area.

This is a terrific quarter of old Valencia - with lots of good bars, little restaurants, and good music joints. Start the evening in the Plaza del Carmen, or perhaps San Jaume, with a jug of Agua de Valencia (a Valencia version of sangria - made with cointreau, orate juice and cava).

this barrio is my favorite. it is in the old town, between the ancient walls. it is very nice and traditional, you can find very nice restaurants and stores. it is the place where to find something to buy for a gift.. something that is not common and touristic. If you can, try to find an hotel here!

The oldest and nicest part of Valencia. It comes alive around 6pm when Valencians go for a walk. Lots of little bars and restaurants, but be careful with the tourist traps!

El Barrio del Carmen is part of the 'old town' in Valencia and the best area to stay for a little holiday! Gorgeous architecture and inexpensive accommodation from hotels to holiday apartments.

This is the place to eat in Valencia, with loads of bars and restaurants of a good standard. Just remember it's not cool to eat paella in the evening! There are plenty of streets to wander round with markets, artisan shops etc. We also enjoy the local graffiti, which is of an artistic standard and can be quite bitingly satirical... More
