We visited Cuenca on a day trip from Valencia using the AVE train service - 200kms in 55 minutes incredible ! Its a beautiful place with several sights - a very worthwhile trip which we would recommend to anyone staying in Valencia.
1. The train tickets are relatively cheap if booked well in advance - we booked from England using loco2 whose website is much easier to use than that of RENFE.
2. The AVE train station is new, very modern and situated a few miles outside Cuenca . There is a bus to the Old Town costing 2.15 E's which leaves every half hour or you can take a taxi costing 12 E's ( set price).Ask to be dropped off at the Plaza Mayor.
3. The Tourist Office( with helpful English speaking staff) is there and you can pick up a map and details of the opening hours of all the attractions. There are a number of good value cafes and restaurants on the Plaza and the surrounding streets.
4. We visited the Cathedral ( entrance fee but that includes the audio guide ) - excellent, the Museum of Abstract Art ( free for everybody) - excellent and the Science Museum ( free for seniors) also excellent with several interactive displays and a Planetarium.
6. We walked up to the old castle ( now just a ruin ) where there are fantastic views over both river gorges on either side of the Old Town. The walk is uphill but it was not unduly steep - however there is also a Tourist Train if you don't want to walk.

This is a wonderful town to walk around although very steep in part. The cathedral is exceptional in its antiquity.

So much to explore in the old city! I've been numerous times since I got here over a month ago and every time is a new adventure! Well worth several visits at least! Many museums, restaurants, and shops available in this area, a theatre, the St. Paul Bridge, etc...

If you've already seen Toledo, this is a great side trip. One hr train ride, the Volga dad are cool to see, and there are lots of art museums. Note: some of the better restaurants are closed S-W which was a bummer for us. Also, no real food service at train station so prep accordingly. Cab ride about 15 mins to old town. We loved the natural beauty and after being in the big cities all week. Stay at the Parador!!

On of the last vestiges of the Moors, a visit to the Cathedral is a must to better understand what happened here. Built on the cliffs for the protections afforded, it has a place in history.
