Venture back in time on this history tour as we walk through the historic center to gain a better understanding on how Valencia became the amazing city it is today.
We will begin with a bus tour pass the City of Arts and Sciences, a modernist-style market known as Mercado Colon, the City Hall or Ayuntamiento and the elegant street, Calle la Paz. We shall also see the bullring known as Plaza de Toros. This site has been used as a backdrop for television specials and music videos. It houses a museum dedicated to the sport of bullfighting.
We will take the time to go where vehicles cannot as we descend upon the city streets by foot. Explore the historic heart of the city with a visit to the incredible Mercado Central market. There will also be time to stop by the Silk Exchange, known as Lonja de la Seda. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, this popular tourist attraction is one of the most famous civil gothic monuments in Europe.
