Additional Location Information
The apartment is located about 10 minutes walk from the historical centre of Valencia. There are two subway stops at 5 minutes walk from the flat and several bus stops round the corner. The airport is about 5km away from the flat; if you are flying, you can either take a taxi or take the underground (metro). You can usually find a parking place in the same street or in streets nearby.
There are many restaurants, bars and pubs in the area, with an active life at weekends. There are also several supermarkets, two sports centres and a public indoor swimming pool nearby. At five minute walking distance, you can also find a 6 km long park which has been created on the old river bed (the river has been diverted so that it now flows around the town and not through it). There you can also visit a zoo park, a lake where you could hire a boat to row about, several sport facilities, paved cycling and walking ways, wooded areas and special play areas for children.
If you are interested in historical buildings, there are plenty to visit in central Valencia: the Lonja (a beautiful gothic specimen of 13th-15th century civil architechture) the Cathedral (with Romanic, Gothic and Baroque parts to it) with its famous clock tower El Miguelete; several Baroque churches; the old gothic towers remaining from the City Wall (Torres de Serranos and Torres de Cuarte); excavations from Roman to medieval Valencia, Arab Spas, etc. It is also worth seeing the astonishing new Ciudad de las Artes y las Ciencias, designed by world famous architect Calatrava
The museum lovers will also find a great variety of them (from San Pio V, with a great collection of gothic paintings, and The Museum of Modern Arts which houses contemporary paintings and several temporary exhibitions of the latest trends in painting, to the Museo Fallero where you can watch the famous Ninots Indultats -grotesque cardboard sculptures which have been saved from the yearly burning of Las Fallas- ; not to mention the museum of Prehistory and many others).
At about 5 km from downtown Valencia there is the Albufera, a big lake with connection to the sea, where you can admire the rice fields, the traditional buildings, the Barracas, and a variety of fish and birds. You can also make an excursion in one of the traditional fishermen boats.
Whether you are the active type, the relaxed family type or the culturally interested type, we are sure you will enjoy your stay in this centrally located Valencian flat.
