I know that Barcelona tends to be the top pick when it comes to short breaks to Spain, but honestly you just can’t go wrong with a Valencia city break! A lively old town, mouthwatering food and some mind-boggling architecture – there’s a good reason why this city is one of my faves!
Valencia City Break
I’ve managed to put this deal together using Hotels.com and Skyscanner, meaning that you’ve got all the important stuff covered already – namely your return flights from Dublin to Valencia and your stay at the excellent Casual Valencia Vintage Hotel. It literally takes just 15 minutes to get into the city centre from the airport if you take the taxi, so it’s dead easy getting around!
The hotel’s excellent location means that you’re perfectly situated for exploring the city centre. The bustling Central Market is just a short walk away, as is the beautiful cathedral and the square. It’s in the heart of the Old Town where you’ll find some of the best tapas bars, restaurants and cafés, so be sure to really spend the time exploring as much as you can!
You’ve got plenty of opportunity to relax in Valencia too. Hire yourselves a bike and make your way down to the fantastic Turia Park, created from the old river bed, or even cycle down to the city beach. It takes around 20 minutes and it’s a nice flat cycle. Even if you’re not really the sporty type it’s a piece of cake getting there! On the way you’ll pass the incredible City of Arts and Sciences, a fantastic bunch of museums with incredible architecture.
