The video below is a short tour of the centre, we will be showing a video on the Valencia Science Centre soon.
Valencia is full of beautiful buildings and churches, there are many squares were people meet for a chat, a snack or just for a cool drink and watch the world go by you cannot help but relax in this atmosphere.
The Spanish way of life can even be seen in a large city such as Valencia. There are numerous places to dine from a small tapas to an expensive meal with a bottle of very special wine. The atmosphere is amazing mixing with the locals and tourist, you can of course tell the tourist a mile away. You do not see any lager louts or loud mouth drunks around here.
You get the feeling of an up-market city without the expensive costs that come with it. It is a tiny bit more expensive than the normal Spanish towns and villages but it is worth it just to sample the ambience all around you. We had a meal with peices of steak you cook yourself on a hot stone with a huge salad to go with it and of course a selection of home-made bread.
This cost us less than 15 euros per person not bad for quality food and a high quality restauran
We also had a violinist to entertain us who was excellent. We finished with my favourite ice cream, wow that was delicious. Most bars and restaurants get busy from 9pm and stay open till late. The shops also stay open till late and of course there are lots of food places for take away open all night. It also felt very safe to walk about, not like Madrid or Barcelona.
Hope you enjoy the video.
