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

The center of Valencia is lovely, and a perfect spot to wander for a few hours. You'll come across interesting buildings and wonderful nooks, plus many cafes to stop in for a coffee or something to snack on. Let yourself get lost in the winding streets....

When visiting Valencia , you must go to the Old Town . With its medieval view, the place looks like something out of a history book

One must flow through the "Old town" known as "El Carmen" plagued with tapas bars and little markets. Night life is fabulous full of people and lots of outdoor terraces to sit and enjoy drinks or tapas.

Come and lose yourself in the streets of Valencia. Wandering through the beautiful maze of architecture is one of the best things to do in this city. I have live here for 4 months and still have yet to tire of this section of town.
