How to Spend 2 Days in Valencia

How to Spend 2 Days in Valencia

Two days in Valencia gives you ample time to see the city’s highlights, while also exploring less-visited areas and soaking up the cultural, culinary, and nightlife scenes. Here’s how to spend 48 hours in Spain’s third-biggest city.

Day 1: Soak Up the Scene

**Morning:**Get your bearings while checking off Valencia’s major sights, such as the bell tower of El Miguelete and Valencia Cathedral on a private or group sightseeing tour by foot, bike, bus, or Segway. For more flexibility, create your own itinerary on a hop-on-hop-off bus tour.

**Afternoon:**You may have already had a glimpse on your morning tour, but the City of Arts and Sciences deserves even more of your time. Take a stroll around the futuristic cultural and architectural complex independently or join a walking tour. Some tours include drinks on one of Valencia’s tallest terraces. 

**Night:**Spend your evening soaking up the city’s lively nightlife scene. Embark on a walking tour of the city’s best tapas bars or immerse yourself in Spanish culture with a visit to a flamenco show. Flamenco shows typically include dinner and a glass of sangria. Continue the festivities by checking out some of the Old Town’s bars.

Day 2: Explore Deeper

**Morning:**Kick off your second day with a taste of the local food scene. Food walking tours typically guide guests around the Mercado de Colón and Mercado Central as well as other local spots, and include samples of a variety of classic Valencian dishes, including jamón, horchata, artisan chocolates, tapas, and wine. 

**Afternoon:**Escape the city for the afternoon with a quick excursion to Albufera Natural Park, home to Spain’s largest lake and a haven for birds and other wildlife. Another option is exploring Turia Park, Spain’s largest urban garden, located within the city of Valencia. You can zip around  this lush green space, past trees, flowers, and sculptures, on a Segway tour.

**Night:**Round out your trip to Valencia with a sunset cruise around the city’s beaches and bay aboard a catamaran. Cruises typically include a drink on board as well as dinner at a local beach when you disembark.
