Tour description

Do you want to know the rich history and culture of the city of Valencia? Let yourself be accompanied by an official native guide, very passionate and knowledgeable about his land.

This tour is special because it is planned as a journey in time through a rich history of more than 2,000 years, visiting the most emblematic buildings where key events took place. I will reveal the legacy left by Romans, Arabs and Christians and I will tell you legends of legendary characters who lived in Valencia such as the Borja family, or Jaime I, El Conquistador.

Our tour includes visit to the following areas:
1. Serranos Towers, the main Medieval gate to access the city
2. Palace of the Borgias, one of the most powerful and wicked dinasties of the 15th to 17th centuries.
3. L´Almoina Square/Virgin Square: Museum of Archeology, Cathedral with its interesting mix of architectural styles, Basilica of the Virgin and Generalitat Palace.
4. Queen Square: St. Catherine Tower, Micalet Tower
5. Round Square and Lope de Vega Square (secret unveiled)
6. Market Square: Lonja de la Seda (UNESCO World Heritage Site), Santos Juanes Church and the Central Market, a marvel for the senses.

I will give you recommendations so that you can enjoy your stay in the city to the fullest, including restaurants to eat paella and tapas.
