Good restaurants and lively streets.

Taste some paella and beers. Visiti the sorroundings of the cathedral and the fountain nearby. Local wines are great and horchata at night refreshing.

A fun and compact city to explore on foot. Narrow curved roads and alleys with picturesque homes, unique doors and fixtures make it a photographers dream

Valencia is the third largest city of Spain. The Old Town is really beautiful. Churches, squares, fountains, baroque buildings, luxury shops, restaurants, bell towers... I have been here twice and I recommend it.

While have seen nicer old towns, it is always fun to wonder the streets a bit and get lost. What was nice is that it was not like most other European old towns that are now full of the same shops.

Lovely part of Valencia, great way to spend the day wandering around the old streets. My favourite way to get lost and another good excuse for Tapas and a beer.

Quite accessible and compact. It invites to amble at a leisurely pace. Great variety of shops ranging from food to furniture.

It is worth spending some time exploring this characterful old part of the city. You never know what you will find round the next corner! Sometimes it is hard to follow a map as the often narrow streets twist and turn a lot, sometimes changing name part way along.

Valencia old town is lovely. We just wandered about enjoying the various vistas and savouring the feel of the streets. There are plenty of places to stop for a quick coffee or tapa. I think Valencia is prettier than Barcelona or Madrid and I would recommend a visit highly
