I can’t be certain that I knew any more than this about Valencia: they have good oranges, and The Decemberists sung a song by the same name. But even with this limited knowledge, we packed a full day in the coastal city. First up was the old town centre, with huge halls, cathedrals and markets to be found through the winding streets. Here we enjoyed our first and only Valencian Paella and a fresh juice from the city market, busy with locals and tourists on the Saturday we visited. In the afternoon, we made our way to the City of Arts and Sciences, an eye-catching, futuristic complex that reminded me of scenes from Battlestar Galactica. The area houses Europe’s largest aquarium, so we spent a few hours here enjoying the touristy attractions Valencia had to offer.
