Valencia can seem a city of clichés: the light, the moon, the gunpowder, the paella, the flowers and the Fallas festivals. But these are nothing but key terms to explain what cannot really be put into words. You need to visit Valencia in order to experience first-hand how centuries-old traditions coexist with modernity. Realise that sea and city are compatible, and that the green of the nature can indeed live together with a modern urban area. It is a well-known fact that Valencia is unique during the day and at night, and nowadays, the capital of the river of Turia has another added value. Amongst the myriad of attractions and things to do in Valencia, now there are also a series of exciting infrastructures like the City of Arts and Sciences, or the Príncipe Felipe Museum, which are of course linked with culture. Do not forget to visit the extraordinarily beautiful Saint Mary’s Cathedral of Valencia, and get to know its history, as well as its different architectural elements. If you want to get in touch with nature during your stay, one of the most interesting places to visit in Valencia is definitely La Albufera Natural Park. Situated about 10 kilometres south of the city, this rich and biodiverse natural reserve spans a surface of 21 hectares, and has the biggest lagoon in Spain. Nearby you will also find some of the best places where you can sample typical rice dishes of Valencia, namely Paella. And of course, do not forget Malvarrosa, Valencia’s most popular beach, which you can access directly from the venue. As well as its cleanliness and white sand, the seafront promenade is one of its best features, with different restaurants which are ideal to discover the local cuisine. Visit Valencia and discover the many wonders of this city.
Valencia has a city and suburban bus network that reaches every corner of the city. Bus services start at 4 am on some of the lines, and end at 10.30 pm. Then follows the night bus service, which ends at 2 am, except for on Fridays, Saturdays and the nights before public holidays, when it continues until 3:30 am. These are the proper EMT’s lines to get to the festival: 2 - 4 - 23 - 30 - 95 and N8 by night.
