"Valencia - a winter escape" Valencia by sue_stone

Valencia Travel Guide: 1,300 reviews and 3,462 photos

Problem: Cold, grey February in London
Solution: A long weekend to Valencia

In dire need of a winter dose of blue sky, we jetted of to Valencia for a couple of relaxing days of site-seeing and too much food!

Valencia is Spain's 3rd largest city and is located on the east coast, south of Barcelona. Home to Paella and copious amounts of oranges, Valencia is a great place for a winter escape (or any other time of the year I am sure!).

We enjoyed discovering what this under-rated city had to offer, but our stay was too short to really fall under its spell.

    Great Valencia pages Sue. I booked the Vinnci Lys on your recommendation, so if it "sucks" you will be cursed with warm beer forever :-) Best regards, Karl

    Great tips on Valencia, Sue. It sure looks like a great place to visit on a cold, gray day here in Germany! :) I'm very much looking forward to seeing this city in another month. Cheers! Brian

    Looks a great destination for a weekend break. I like the mix of old & new architecture. The hotel looks perfect and I love the sound of the Mercado. Quality restaurant tips too, as always :)
