To enjoy fully an unforgettable holiday, the best solution is to book a taxi service from Valencia Airport.The wonderful city of Valencia, which is situated on Spain’s east coast, overlooks the Mediterranean Sea and is the third largest city in Spain by population after the capital, Madrid, and the capital of Catalonia, Barcelona. Its geographical location is quite strategic in that it is equidistant from both Barcelona and Madrid at around 350 kilometres from either city.
Valencia’s port is one of the largest and most important in Europe and is also a port of call for some of the large cruise ships from which some 400,000 passengers disembark every year. Although previously a somewhat niche area for tourists, since the America’s Cup was held in the sea around Valencia in 2007, the city’s popularity exploded and today it is a popular destination for thousands of tourists annually.
What to see in Valencia
Occupied by the Romans, the Visigoths and the Arabs, the capital city of the region of Valencia still bears traces of the various cultures that have passed through the city walls over the course of several centuries. That being said, Valencia is one of the few cities in the world where both the historic city centre and the more modern parts of the city are extremely interesting and that’s without forgetting the fantastic golden sandy beaches. In fact, anyone who is visiting this unique Spanish city will be spoiled for choice when it comes down to deciding what to do and the wide variety of interesting places to visit.
Amongst the most important attractions, we would highlight:
- La Lonja de la Seda, (the Silk Exchange), since it was built in the early 16th century, has been the focal point of commercial activity in the city and was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1996. Today it is home to the Cultural Academy of Valencia.
- The City of Arts and Sciences is the largest cultural complex in Europe and is the work of the Valencian architect, Santiago Calatrava. It houses various very famous buildings such as the l’Hemisferic (a huge cinema and planetarium), the Science Museum, the Palace of Arts and L’Oceanografic which is the largest aquarium in Europe.
- The Cathedral, which is a religious symbol of the city. It was built upon the ruins of an Arab mosque which was demolished at the time of the “Reconquista” (the end of Muslim power). Next to the cathedral is its bell tower which is known as The Micalet Tower that you can climb (with its 207 steps) to enjoy stunning views of the city.
Valencia’s international airport which is also known as Manises (VLC) is situated in the area of the same name about 9 kilometres from the centre of the city. It is the eighth busiest airport in Spain according to passenger numbers. It has just one terminal and 2 runways.
The Valencian airport is the hub of Iberia and Vueling, the largest Spanish low-cost airline.
Inside the airport, you can find a number of "facilities", such as unlimited wifi, various bars, restaurants and shops to shop while waiting for your flight.
