Whenever we think of Valencia, the first thing to come to our mind is beaches and paella, but Valencia always surprises the visitor sticking to those clichés during their stay.
The Gran Vía Ramón y Cajal and the Gran vía Marqués de Túria are the major avenues crossing Valencia's city centre. From Blasco Ibáñez Avenue you can get to the sea whilst you walk by the Royal Gardens. On your way you will spot the Palau de la Música, inside the Túria gardens, regarded as one of the best music halls in Europe. Walking by the Carmen quarter, the Fernando el Católico avenue and Colón street, you will find along the way places such as the Cathedral, Santa Catalina Church, Central Market, the Santos Church, the Basilica of Virgen de los Desamparados or the Lonja.
ALSA takes you to Valencia through its bus station. You will discover one of the most innovating buildings of modern architecture: la Ciudad de las Artes y las Ciencias (City of Arts and Science). Here you can visit the impressive Oceanogràfic (marine life complex), the Principe Felipe Science Museum or l'Hemisfèric.
At the restaurants you can find all sorts of recipes and delicious dishes, and among them, of course, the so famous Valencian paella. From the sea you will taste the best fish, along with an excellent assortment of products from the Valencian crops, including fruit and vegetables.
