Hi! My name is Nicolas! I am an architecture student and have been living in Valencia for 3 years. I consider myself lucky to have had the opportunity to live in many countries, among which are the United States, Canada, Venezuela, Chile, Mexico and my country of origin; Bolivia. I have always been passionate about the cultural diversity and history that exists in each place and one of the things I like the most is to learn about the places where I am. In addition to my university studies, I am a professional pianist and in my spare time I take the opportunity to discover new places or visit the ones I already know to study them more. When I go out, one of my favorite activities is to draw the landscapes that I find on my way. I love this city and it is my passion to be able to teach its wonders to travelers who pass through it.
A unique visit to the city through the most beautiful route you could have: the Turia River, an old channel that is currently the main park that embraces all of Valencia.
The tour takes place along a section of this river, discovering natural and unique landscapes for what is a metropolis like Valencia. The visit ends at the symbol of this city: The City of Arts and Sciences , a site within which a walk is made describing each of its buildings, with time to take photos and stop to contemplate and that will make it a place very eager to return more than once.
The starting point is the Palau de la Música , a beautiful concert hall that faces the Turia River.
