Enjoy Mediterranean life.
Situated on the Eastern coast, it is the third Spanish city in terms of importance and population. Smaller than Barcelona but equally dynamic, lively and modern, Valencia is trade and culture, cinema, theatre, museums, magic, business… It is the centre of international and avant-garde design, and one of the most active cities in Europe regarding fairs and conferences. The closeness of the coastal mountains makes the Valencian coast uniquely attractive.
Valencia was host to the 2007 & 2010 America’s Cup. This fact, along with the construction of the “City of Arts and Science” by renowned architect and Valencian Santiago Calatrava have made Valencia a city in transition. Massive construction and transformation over the last 10 years have turned a once little-considered medium city into a meatier and more interesting destination. Thousands of tourists from all over the world visit it every year and an increasing number of students choose Valencia to learn or improve their Spanish and complete their studies at Valencia University.
Thanks to its subtropical Mediterranean climate with very mild winters and long warm to hot summers, Valencia enjoys very nice weather all year round. Cafés and restaurants open their terraces, spilling life onto the streets, creating this special atmosphere in every corner.
There are many transport facilities and you can easily get around the city by bus, metro or even on foot. Renting a bike is also an increasingly popular way for visitors and residents alike. Valencia airport offers direct flights to the main European cities. Madrid and Barcelona are also easily reached by plane or train.
