You want to get to know Valencia, but have only a few days to explore it? Then this 3h30 bike tour is perfect for you! On a bike, we will be able to see a lot of this wonderful city, and still have time to look closely at some very interesting spots.
The first place we will visit is where it all started: the old city of Valencia. It is a unique place in Valencia where you can bike through the narrow winding streets of the city center and imagine the history that has been written here. The Romans and the Moors have added their culture to this vibrant city and Pelican Bike will be glad to show you some of its gems. Either in Plaza de la Virgen, the Serranos Gate, the Mercado Central, the Valencia Cathedral, the Plaza de la Reina, the Valencia City Hall or the Marués de Dos Aguas Palace, this tour gives you the opportunity to see it all and learn about these interesting historic places.
After enjoying the hustle and bustle of the busy old city, we will take our bikes and head to the City of Arts and Sciences. We will ride our bikes through the unique Turia River. But how can you bike on a river? That is a good question, but the Turia river is actually the perfect place to ride a bike. There used to be water here, but since this river flooded the city many times, the government decided to dry it out and make a park out of it. So this river is the perfect place to discover Valencia on bike! Many exotic plants and trees grow in this 9 kilometers long park and it is the perfect spot to enjoy a healthy exercise outside. So apart from the Pelican Bike tours cyclists, you will see football fields, jogging tracks and a variety of fitness machines. But this park is not only used for sports, it is the place to go for recreational purposes as well and people like to meet here and enjoy a fun picnic in the sun.
The last destination of this bike tour of Valencia will be to the very end of this beautiful park. The impressive buildings of the City of Arts and Sciences were built by the Valencian architect Santiago Calatrava and Felix Candela. In 1996, the construction of this huge complex started, and in 2005 the Palau de les Arts Reina Sofia was inaugurated as the last building of the 12 Treasures of Spain. Now we can admire six different architectural gems in this bike tour. If it’s the opera house and performing arts center, the El Palau de les Arts Reina Sofia, the Imax cinema L`Hemisfèric, the Agora or the L’Umbracle, a walkway and garden, you will enjoy the unique architecture of each building. The El Museu de les Ciènces Principe Felipe is a special place and famous for its modern approach to science and the Oceanografic is the number one attraction for many tourists every year. This aquarium is not just any aquarium; it allows you to travel around the planet’s main oceans and seas. You can find sharks, Beluga whales, sea lions and manta rays in this huge water world, and it even has its own dolphin show. If you have still some time left, you should not leave out this Valencia attraction and pay it a visit after your Valencia bike tour. Like the Tardis, it is so much bigger on the inside!
