This family tour takes everyone to the highlights of the Old City of Valencia, ancient and modern, from the Roman centre through the UNESCO Heritage Silk Market and into the Mercado Central, Europe’s largest covered market. Discover the hidden delights of the old Muslim quarter while everyone young and old can
engage in a hunt for the concealed symbols and artistic wonders of this bohemian area.
Walk along the Moorish battlements and relive the Islamic age of Valencia which affected the language, cuisine, architecture and technology of Spain even now 800 years later! Find out why bat symbols cover
the city (and the crest of the football team!). We meet in the very heart of Valencia in the centre of a 2000 year-old Roman plaza and history unfolds from there. Our deeply passionate guides want your family to understand and celebrate the richness of the culture and life in this special place. We visit an old Cloister transformed into public art galleries and travel underground to visit the Roman baths. Visit the central market and see live eels and discover why Valencia is home of the paella. See the mason-marks of the early Christian period – how many different kinds can you see? On this tour we see the changes from the Roman, Visigoth, Muslim and Christian ages. End with a phenomenal view as we climb Torre de Serranos, one of the great gates which guarded the city for centuries. This guided family tour reveals the sweeping changes and rich cultural delights of Valencia that create lasting memories for everyone.
