Destinations / Europe

Despite being Spain’s third-largest city behind Madrid and Barcelona, Valencia is considerably cheaper to visit as a tourist than the capital of Spain and the capital of Catalonia. If traveling on a budget, here are a few ways to stretch your euros in Valencia.


Post Up at the Park

The Turia Gardens (or Jardíns de Turia) snake through Valencia to the Mediterranean Sea. Once a flowing river that had to be patched to prevent flooding, the green space is now home to miles of running trails, dog parks, soccer fields and lovely plant life.


Go for a Swim in the Mediterranean Sea

Valencia’s coastal location means the beach is never too far away. Grab a bus from the city center to the Mediterranean beach of La Malva-Rosa for an afternoon of swimming and sunbathing on the plentiful sands.


People Watch in Plaça de la Mare de Déu

The site of the city’s cathedral (La Seu de la Valencia) is a sight to behold, especially in the early evening hours. Grab a chair at one of the cafés and watch as people stare in awe at the belltowers.


Take Advantage of Free Admission

At certain times on certain days, select museums and attractions are free to visitors. Examples include the first Sunday of the month and evening hours, but check the attraction’s website to be sure.


Take a Free Guided Tour

Prevalent in any major European city, taking a free guided tour is a great way to learn more about a destination. At the end of the tour, tip your guide what you think the tour should cost.
