Itinerary

Day 1 Arrive in Valencia and get tasting!

After arriving in Valencia, you will be picked up from the airport (adapted transport) and taken to your hotel in Valencia, which will be your home for 6 nights.
Around 18:30 we meet for a tasting of some of the best Valencian wines – we do this in a bar in the historic centre of Valencia. After the wine tasting we continue to a restaurant for a dinner of Valencian cuisine (included in price).

Day 2Exploring the old city

After breakfast we will do a walking tour of the old city, seeing Valencia’s historic highlights, like the cathedral, the Silk Exchange (15th century), and the Mercado Central, Europe’s largest fresh produce market and a beautiful Modernist style building.

Lunch free (but can be booked/organised).

Day 3The modern city

Today we go to see the modern, futuristic part of Valencia, the “City of Arts and Science”, designed by the famous (and controversial) Valencian architect Calatrava – a MUST SEE in Valencia.

We continue to the port area, to see where the America’s Cup and F1 GP races were held, and to the beach. You could have lunch at a boulevard restaurant to eat fideuá, a typical Valencian dish of pasta and fish (no included in price, but could be booked for you).

You can spend the afternoon at the beach or go back to the hotel.

Day 4Wine tour to Utiel-Requena

After breakfast we go to Utiel-Requena, one of Valencia’s top wine regions, for a winery visit and some wine tastings; your guide is a vinologist/sommelier specialised in Valencian wines.

We will visit an accessible winery in the region, where we will see the vineyards, production area, and cellars. You will get explanations about the wine making process, and afterwards you get to taste some of their best wines.

From the winery we will go for a local lunch in one of the villages, and then back to Valencia.

Day 5A day off

Option: go to the Lladró factory (world-famous Valencian handmade porcelain figurines); taxis could be organised.

Day 6Lake Albufera tour

The Albufera Lake lies just south of Valencia and is surrounded by rice paddies. It’s (with the dunes/forest between the lake and the sea) a protected nature reserve, where you can see many migratory birds. We will first roll / walk through the dune forest, while you will learn about the history of the lake and the rice.

From there we drive on to the village of El Palmar, right at the lake, for a boat trip on the lake. There’s always a breeze on the lake, so the boat trip is great when it’s hot.

The Albufera rice is grown especially for the paella, and at the lake you can find Valencia’s best paellas! So after the boat trip, there shouldn’t really be any discussion about what to have for lunch… though there are other special local dishes worth trying, like all-i-pebre, a stew of eel, potatoes and garlic.

After lunch (not included in price) we’ll go back to Valencia, in time for a siesta…

Day 7Back home

After breakfast at the hotel, you will be taken to the airport. Back home, see you soon!
