Hi! My name is Lucia. I am a languages teacher with a degree in Social Sciences and Geography. I was born in Valencia and I'm passionate about local culture and traditions. I have lived in amazing countries such as Ethiopia, Myanmar and China as well as England and Ireland, so I know very well what makes a place special. I am great communicator and I speak English at native speaker level. My city has lots of exciting things to do, amazing places to visit and secrets and curiosities I can help you discover. My experience as tour guide started in Dublin, Ireland. I want to make you feel at home in my hometown and share with you an unforgettable time.

About the Tour

Do you want to know aspects of the rich history and culture of the city of Valencia? Let yourself be accompanied by a local guide, very passionate and knowledgeable about her land.

This tour is special because it is planned as a journey through time through the centuries, taking as a reference the most emblematic buildings where key events in the history of the city took place. I will give you the keys to discover the legacy left by the Romans and the Arabs and I will tell you legends of characters who lived in Valencia and relevant families such as the Borja or characters such as El Cid or Jaume I.

We will start with the Cathedral with its interesting mix of architectural styles and its nearby palaces and squares: Palacio de los Borja, Plaza de la Virgen, Plaza Redonda, Plaza de Lope de Vega. We will continue through the iconic Lonja de la Seda (UNESCO World Heritage Site), the baroque church of Santos Juanes and the Central Market , a wonder for the senses.

From there, we will go to the Plaza del Ayuntamiento and end our walk admiring the beauty of the modernist building of the Estación del Norte.

Important information:

  • Reservations must be made a minimum of 12 hours in advance of the tour.
  • Tours with less than 2 people will not be carried out.

El tour fue estupendo. Nuestra guía Lucía nos encantó y se nos hizo muy ameno. Acabamos con muy contentos y sabiendo mucho más del legado no una ciudad tan bonita como Valencia.

Everything was great. The tour could have had a better structure with fewer thought leaps.
