Valencia

Valencia is a vibrant city with a  modern museum complex in the dry river bed of the Rio Turia. The old city, particularly Barrio del Carmen, is very beautifull. Many good restaurants and a busy street nightlife.

Fallas Fiestas in March. Valencia celebrates an incredible build and burn sculpture competition where local neighbourhood groups construct large, street structures which are viewed by over a million visitors daily, judged, then burnt, all except the winning exibit.

The best way to see fallas is a day visit by train, avoiding the difficulty of parking in urban Valencia during fiestas. Trains from The Bike Inn, Castellon to Valencia take just 1 hour.

The architecture of the science museum, Auditorium, Hemispheric and Aquarium are impressive and an interesting bike ride from the historic city centre down the River Turia.

Citybikes available from   valenbisi.es
