This tour encompasses both the best of modern day Valencia as well as the historical heart of this charming city. Your tour begins with a short drive to the amazing cultural complex known as The City of Arts and Science. This landmark attraction with its five distinctive buildings was designed by Spanish architect, sculptor and structural engineer, Santiago Calatrava. You will first stop for a view of the massive contemporary building of the Museu de les Ciènces Principe Felipe. Here, your guide will give you an overview of this important site before continuing on to the Oceanographic Center.

Considered to be the largest and most important marine park in Europe, the center is home to over 45,000 samples of 500 distinct specimens of aquatic life. This huge maritime center focuses on the marine life of the many different climatic zones of the world, including the Mediterranean Sea; a wetlands area; an area devoted to the Temperate Seas and Red Sea; Tropical Seas; Patagonian Islands; and the Arctic and Antarctic Oceans. The aquariums are designed so that you pass under a special arched tank that allows the sea life to swim over head as you get an up-close view. Outside, lakes and lagoons dot the landscape and there are even mangrove swamps and marshland to be found. Following what will surely be an enjoyable and memorable visit, you'll re-join your coach and travel to Valencia's historic city center.

Arriving in the Old City, you'll commence a guided walking tour of some of the most notable medieval landmarks that are located here. This includes Plaza de la Virgen and the Cathedral's exterior, erected atop the site of a former Roman temple and Muslim mosque; Lonja, the old silk exchange that has been recognized by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site and the Central Market. Following this last stop, you'll be given some free time to perhaps do some shopping or relax and have a refreshment before it's time to re-board your coach and make your way back to the pier.

Please note: This tour consists of approximately 2 1/2 miles of moderate walking over mostly flat or cobblestone surfaces. Wheelchair guests must have someone who can assist them and it is recommended that those guests with mobility concerns evaluate their personal level of ability and stamina. Lightweight clothing, caps and flat, comfortable walking shoes are suggested.
