After a brief transfer, you will be outfitted with your bicycle and equipment. Proceeding through the city, enjoy the sights as your guide provides commentary. Your first stop will be the City of Arts and Science, where you may take pictures or enjoy a brief visit. This fabulous landmark of Valencia is well known for its futuristic architecture, designed by Santiago Calatrava.

Next, continue along the former riverbed, now referred to as the Turia Gardens. You will then cross under the historical bridges of the city, pass the Music Hall, Fine Arts Museum and "Viveros" Gardens until you reach the San José Bridge. You will then enter into the heart of the city via the Serranos Towers, once the main entrance to the medieval walled city of Valencia.

Continue along Serranos Street, Manises Square, Almudín Street and Archbishop Square. Stop briefly to visit the Virgin Square, where the Cathedral, Basilica and the Generalitat Palace are situated. Afterward, you will continue through the old city towards the Palace of the Marqués de Dos Aguas, the city's finest Baroque monument. Finally, you'll pass the old University, the Patiarca church and the Glorieta gardens. Afterwards, you'll return to the ship.
