Valencia in one day. That does sound like a challenge, knowing this Spanish city has a lot to offer when it comes to architectural gems, beautiful sceneries, delicious food and drinks and shopping! But that doesn’t mean it is impossible! If you are traveling through Spain and you decided to add a day trip to Valencia to your itinerary, I’ve got the perfect city walk for you! So put on your comfortable shoes and lets start your one day in Valencia!
Valencia is getting more popular by the day and has every reason to it.
Valencia totally surprised me! There are so many things to see and do! I had done some research, but apparently not enough! So that’s why I decided to share with you the 10 things to do in Valencia. That way you won’t miss out on its greatest activities!
Valencia is probably the most underrated city of Spain. Even though it is the third largest city of Spain and it has a lot to offer, it’s still one of the most authentic. It’s not packed (yet) with tourists like Barcelona, Madrid or Sevilla. Which makes it all the more pleasant to visit. Valencia isn’t known for world famous monuments, but it does have some impressive architecture to admire. Good food can be found behind every corner and the shopping options are limitless!
I visited the Real Alcazar in Sevilla for the second time last Summer and I couldn’t be happier! It is the oldest royal palace that is still in use in Europe and truly one of the prettiest palaces I’ve ever seen. If I ever get rich, I would like to have the same mosaic tiled walls and decorated doorways. I simply adore the Mudejar architectural style!
Sevilla in Summer is quiet and Summer Sundays even more! I enjoyed my walk around the Parque de Maria Luisa, the Plaza de Expana, my swim at the pool and the carriage ride around town in the evening (I even got free wine!).
Enjoy these Sevillian Sunday vibes!
After 2 years I finally returned back to the Real Alcazar of Sevilla, one of my favorite places in the world. In the afternoon I discovered the Casa de las Duenas. Enjoy this video!
Casa Andalusi wasn’t on my bucket list of things to visit during my day in Cordoba. But at lunch I was looking on my map for monuments I could still visit in the afternoon (most of them are closed after 3pm) that were at a short walking distance. Casa Andalusi met those requirements. So after eating my tapas, I headed to this typical Andalusian house, not reallly knowing what to expect.
