How to get around in Valencia

Walking

As we have mentioned before, Valencia enjoys great weather for most of the year, with very few rainy days. It is also a moderately-sized city, with mostly flat ground. You can cross the city centre in about half an hour. All of these elements make it the perfect city to explore on foot.

Man walking in the city centre of Valencia
When you’re in Valencia’s Old Town, walking is your best option. Many streets are pedestrian-only, and others only allow for residents to drive around.

While you might need some form of wheeled transportation to get to the more peripheral neighbourhoods, walking in Valencia will allow you to pick your own pace. On foot, you can enjoy the sun with a peaceful walk in the park. You will be able to stop wherever you like and discover Valencia’s alleys and unexpected corners, which you might not be able to see on other means of transportation.

Guided tours

A great option, before starting to wander off on your own, is to get introduced to the city, its history, monuments, and curiosities with a guided tour.
