Flights - Valencia, an Introduction

By: Liam G

Roughly half way down Spain's Mediterranean coast is the country's third largest city - the "laid-back beach-town" of Valencia.

Valencia's history dates all the way back to 138 BC, where it was part of the Roman Empire. World renowned for their flawless architecture; taking a walk down the streets of Valencia today, proves that the Roman construction really does stand the sands of time.

Now with a population of just over 800 thousand, Valencia has become a hybrid of cultures blended together to create a city rich in art, culture, energy, shopping, nightlife and a dash of cosmopolitan sophistication.

Adding to Valencia's unparalleled charisma is an abundance of stunning visuals on offer throughout the city. The thriving city parks roll down to the golden beaches and into the crystal blue Mediterranean Sea.

As mentioned above, a walk through Valencia will be much as it was centauries ago, with such notable sites as the "Mercado Central", a gothic silk exchange which is now a recognised UNESCO heritage site.

The city is also home to "Ciutat de les Arts i les CiÃ?ncies" or "The City of Arts and Sciences", which is one of the world's most impressive examples of modern architecture.

Along with being rich in architecture, Valencia is alive with music and festivals, boasting an excellent selection of bars, theatres and of course the world famous La Tomatina festival.

The tomato-hurling festival is held annually on a Wednesday towards the end of August, so ensure your flights fall around then so you don't miss out!

Finding cheap flights to Valencia is easily done, especially if you take advantage of popular online flights comparison sites.
