Valencia is a beautiful, vibrant city of many contrasts. There is the old part of the city filled with bars, shops and more than a little bit of history. Then there's the very modern City of Arts and Science on the old river bed which has an aquarium, natural science museum, Opera House, Theatre, Imax and the new "Agora" which will host the first Valencia Tennis Open.
The old Valencia city market is worth a visit. It is always full of locals and always buzzing. Then again, if you prefer there's the very modern Aqua shopping centre in Avenida de Francia not far from the centre of Valencia.
Bull fighting is very traditional in Valencia and the main bull ring is next to the main Valencia train station. However, the city also hosts the Formula 1, Grand Prix and the moto GP. Also remains of the 32nd and 33rd Americas Cup are visible by the port.
Then there is the food. Of course, Valencia has many restaurants but a paella is a must and in Valencia it's an art form. Try it with a some sangria on one of the many restaurant in Malvarosa Beach. Then there's horchata a milky drink (that contains no milk) made from tiger nuts which is sold on the streets, especially in the summer. If you manage to get some back to the villa try it with some rum (Not very Valencian, but great brilliant anyway!)
Valencia is the home of paella, and this area has white sandy beaches, with the mountains rolling away to the sea. The city of Valencia blends Roman and Gothic architecture with ultra-modern constructions, and is an increasingly popular destination for villa holidays. The city is set upon the Costa del Azahar, quieter than the Costa Blanca to the south, with vast stretches of orange groves and sandy beaches. Inland at the north of this area are dry rugged hills scattered with secluded medieval villages. Costa Blanca has been a favourite resort for years for villa holidays, its climate was recently declared to be the healthiest in the world, and the area has plenty of attractions from the nightclubs of Benidorm to the watersports of Torrevieja. There are plenty of activities for children in this area too, such as the Terra MÃtica theme park just outside Benidorm....There is is lots and lots more to do around Puzol and Valencia and it makes a great place to enjoy a villa holiday.
