“Beach - great for a stroll and paella”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

We didn't see the port, but rather walked along the Neptus boulevard lined with paella and seafood restaurants on one side and an immense, clean beach on the other. Sunday afternoons are great for paella, but reserve if you want to sit outside!

“Worth a visit”
Reviewed July 12, 2012

First went when the Americas Cup was here, busy, lovely walks and plenty of restaurants and shops, also busy when Formula 1 racing is here in June, but now it is very quiet, no more Americas cup.

Very modern part of Valencia harbour near Malvarossa beach with lots of restaurants of which,although very big, Pepica is one of the best. This is the place where the annual Formula 1 competition is held.

“My 10 top favorite of Valencia”
Reviewed November 25, 2009

My 10 top favorite of Valencia were:
1) L'aventure de La Pensee - The Thought Adventure - at the MuVIM, Museu Valencia de la ll-lustracio i de la Modernitat. Request the English 1 hour tour.
2) Centre Arqueologic de L'Almoina - Voted the second best museum in Europe - Take a trip through time of over 2000 years and discover some of the most ancient Roman and other treasures of the Iberian Peninsula. Request the English 1 hour tour.
3) Museo Nacional de Ceramica y de las Artes Suntuarias "Gonzalez Marti". The motto of the Musuem "the Doorway to Valencia". In the entrance hall is the ceremonial coach of the Marquis de Dos Aquas and another belonging to the Marquis de Llanera. It is located in a sumptuous palace.
4) Casa-Museu Benlliure - home, studio, gardens, painting pavilion and museum of the famous painter Jose Benlliure Gil.
5) Museo de Prehistoria y de las Culturas de Valencia - also known as La Beneficencia. The Palaeolithic period, the rich finds from the Cueva de Parpallo. So interesting and full of treasures!
6) The Rodin Sculpture Collection on loan from Paris displayed in Plaza del Ayuntamiento. This collection was in Seville, Spain when we visited in November 2008.
7) Mercado Central - A culinary heaven of every possible food you can think of eating or drinking. I got 6 pounds of dried hibiscus flowers to add to my daily tea; this is a rare find.
8) La Longa - Fifteenth-century Gothic La Longa is now listed as a Unesco World Heritage site. The rib-vaulted ceiling of the main colonnaded hall is supported by helicoidal columns.
9) Bioparc - Boundless nature, a total wildlife experience - an innovative zoo design based on the philosophy of zoo immersion in which the visual barriers are eliminated.
10) La Ciudad de Les Artes i Les Ciencies - We bought a 2 day pass to the breath-taking creation of Santiago Calatrava and Felix Candela.

a) L'Oceanografic - When we checked in we were told that it was the only building we were allowed to enter on that day. There were few adults, mostly school groups. All the indoor exhibitions were interesting but the outdoor ones needed a refill of fresh water. The kids kept the level of the Dolphin Show exciting.
We headed for the Restaurante Submarino for lunch but was taken back by the water in front of the restaurant drying up into a muddy mess.
We headed to Restaurante Oceanos and found a shady spot on the patio. The Manager said that if we want cafeteria food we have to sit outdoors, if we want restaurant food we have to sit indoors. We opted for outdoors and cafeteria food. Putting umbrellas on the patio would make this place more inviting.
b) L'Umbracle - The roof of the car park has been turned into a winter garden, most of it was closed off because the leaves needed to be raked and the floor needed to be swept.
c) L'Hemisferic - The following day we returned to see the superb IMAX Film "Secrets of The Mummies", there were few adults, mostly school groups. If we wanted to go to the Planetarium and Laserium there will be an extra charge for each of them; we passed on both.
d) Museu de les Ciencies Principe Felipe - An interactive learning experience. Few adults, mostly school groups, 1/3 of this building on the side is empty from end to end. The white plastic chairs at the bar outside are tasteless, they should be replaced with a more exotic design of an assortment of colored wire.
I sat outside in the 79 degree weather and closed my eyes to meditate because my admiraton for this place was slowly diminishing, I felt it to be very cold and distant.
It needs Color + + +, there are soo many talented street artists in the Carmin District (Barrio El Carmen) who paint beautiful murals to place along the walkways. This place is a gem for generations to come but needs to have artists and sculptors show their work to be called "LA COMMUNIDAD Y CIUDAD DE LES ARTS Y LES SCIENCES" - The Community and City Of The Arts and Sciences....More greenery and flowers wouldn't hurt either!
e) L'Agora - Indoor Tennis Court is under construction.
f) Palau de Les Arts Reina Sofia, the security guards at the front and back with their machine guns made me nauseated to look at. Since tickets for events here are sold out almost immediately the Board of Directors should consider daily English tours for tourists to see inside.
