This is one very amazing area. It's really a city within a city. The most striking feature is the opera house, which rises like a leviathan out of a massive reflecting pool.

The City of Arts and Sciences dominates the Valencian skyline and houses some of the most impressive, modern, buildings on the continent. Following on from the Antiguo Cauce del Rio Turia, this is the must-see location of Valencia.

In the old Turia river bedding, which splits parts of the city. Great area to escape a while from the busy city, even during the Fallas Festival. Take a walk , hire a bike cycle through to the Zoo or beach and enjoy the greenery,...More

Nah, I would say walk. All the other attractions including oceanograph is walking distance. No need for bike.i did not see any bike riders. Besides the layout is not geared at bike riders.
