Choosing the Best Bike Tour in Valencia, Spain

Choosing the Best Bike Tour in Valencia, Spain
The port city of Valencia lies on Spain's southeastern coast, where the Turia River meets the Mediterranean Sea. Spain's third-largest city is a magnificent place, content for Madrid and Barcelona to grab the headlines while it gets on with being a wonderfully livable city with thriving cultural, eating and nightlife scenes. Never afraid to innovate, Valencia diverted its flood-prone river to the outskirts of town and converted the former riverbed into a superb green ribbon of park winding right through the city. On it are the strikingly futuristic buildings of the Ciudad de las Artes y las Ciencias, designed by local boy Santiago Calatrava. Other brilliant contemporary buildings grace the city, which also has a fistful of fabulous Modernista architecture, great museums and a large, characterful old quarter. Valencia, surrounded by its huerta, a fertile fruit-and-veg farmland, is famous as the home of rice dishes such as paella, but its buzzy dining scene offers plenty more besides. Valencia also has several beaches, including some within nearby Albufera Park, a wetlands reserve with a lake and walking trails. With so much to see, do, and taste, Valencia is a great place to experience, and there are several options for exciting activities and tours in or near the area.
