Valencia is a jewel in the Mediterranean Sea. Being the third largest city of Spain is near of awesome orange trees that are typical from the area. This city boasts of futurist arquitecture , a colorful old city and cheerlful beaches.
One the most expectacular monuments of Valencia is the Arts and Science city where you have from operas and ballets in the Queen Sofia arts house or science exhibitions in the Prince Felipe science museum.
You also have the "MIcalet" in the cathedral which is really nice to see but the most espectacular event in Valencia are the "Fallas" when all the city boils of happiness and make bonds within everyone who is around.
To have a good taste of what Valencia is you don't have to miss the night life. The most recommended place to spend is the Animas Puerto disco. This disco is really famous during the summer and a lot of places in the Carmen area.
Also you can taste the traditional paella and "Agua de Valencia" that is the typical drink of Valencia.
I live there and it is amazing how is in every season. In this city you can get lost and find something new that you won't regret.
