The northeast side of the old-town is the youngest and most bohemian part of the city. El Carmen took shape in medieval times, situated outside of the 11th-century Moorish walls but within the Christian ones that went up in the 14th-century. What’s great about this place is the way the palaces next to these cool, shaded alleys have been converted into hip boutiques, bars, restaurants and nightclubs. Calle de Caballeros, which begins at Plaza de la Virgen, is where many nights out in Valencia will end up. You can also see fragments of Valencia’s late-medieval defences, at Torres de Quart and Torres de Serranos.

Mavarrosa is a fine urban beach, but it might be that you want a more natural setting for you day next to the Mediterranean. In which case El Saler is the way to go: the beach starts some way south of Valencia’s port, which you’ll be able to see in the distance. At 2.6 kilometres in length this beach means peace and privacy as you relax on white sands on the coast of La Albufera Natural Reserve. Behind you will be little more than sand dunes and pine trees and in front moderate waves and a wash that shelves gently into the sea.

Riding a bike on Spanish roads might seem like a hair-raising experience, but it’s perfectly safe in Valencia’s web of narrow streets, pedestrianised squares, parks and seafront promenades. You’ll have the freedom to zip around Valencia’s top sights, head to the beach or take easy rides through the Jardín del Turia. In 2012 the city implemented the Valenbisi bike sharing network, which is subscription-based and aimed mainly at Valencia’s residents. Still, there are numerous rental companies across the city, ilike Ciao bike in Carrer de Cuba.

Clubs

Great location and atmosphere! The terrace is incredible and offers a unique feeling on summer nights. The prices are high though, especially for students. Therefore most people drink before entering, there is a big botellón just some minutes away from the club. Definitely a must-do in Valencia, even if you are not that into clubbing.
