Tour description

A traveler himself will acquire tricks to realize for himself how the heritage of a city and its local myths are being built, which can then be applied to any place he visits. An essential and chronological tour of the city of Valencia where you can see how a city is being built with the passage of cultures. The tour starts at the Xàtiva metro stop next to the Plaza de Toros and the North Station. Then we go along the Carrer San Vicent (Via Augusta) to the Plaza de L'Almoina to see the Valentia forum. Then we cross to the Virgin Square to observe the essential spaces of the Islamic Balansiya and those of Valencia after the Christian Conquest: Palau de la Generalitat, La Seu. Per Carrer del gremi Cabillers to Els Banys de L'almirall. We will visit the imposing Serrans Towers and take a walk to the Lonja de La Seda to finish in front of the Central Market. Surely a horchata, some snacks taste much more grounded after the visit!

Preparatissimo, dolce, disponibile e aperto a ogni domanda. Abbiamo fatto il tour e siamo rimaste piacevolmente sorprese da una guida così giovane ma così preparata e curiosa. Ci ha riportato notizie storiche riguardo la nascita e lo sviluppo della città di Valencia e curiosità di ogni tipo. Davvero consigliato!
