Driving Directions to
Valencia is the 3rd largest city in Spain and has all the cultural, educational and gastronomic benefits of a large city but still is a city of Barrios. Each like its own small pueblo or village with a friendly easy-going cafe lifestyle. It is city where you are more likely to wake up to church bells and birds singing than traffic and urban noise. Valencia unlike its larger siblings Madrid and Barcelona still maintains an authentic Spanish lifestyle while it has grown into a vibrant modern city. The sleek Modern Art Institute, along with the futuristic City of Arts and Sciences immerse visitors into a brave new world of artistic and scientific discovery.
There are numerous play areas, the fantastic BioPark Zoo and Oceanographic Aquarium are sites to see again and again. There are easy connections to most European capitals and even a direct flight to the United States. High speed rail reached Valencia in 2010 and Madrid is now only an hour and a half away by train. The mountains are 15 minutes by car and beaches abound, from the expansive, well-groomed Las Arenas and Malvarosa beaches in the city to the peaceful naturalism of the nearby undeveloped shore.
At Perfect Spain we are of course biased as we come from Europe, the Americas, Asia and Australia, and all chose to live here. Come visit and see for yourself. All in all, Valencia is a Perfect Place to be.
