How to get from Valencia Airport to Valencia
Head to the ground floor of the airport to get the Metro straight into the city – this is the easiest, fastest and cheapest way of getting into the city during peak season. Alternatively, grab a taxi from the ranks outside of the airport. Taxis to the city centre start at around €12.00 (£10), but they can cost more depending on when you arrive and the traffic in the city centre. If you're heading to Valencia during Las Fallas, do not attempt getting a taxi: the roads to the city centre are usually blocked off, and the crowds take over.
Check out car hire at Valencia Airport for an easier, even cheaper way to get around the city.
When to go to Valencia
Las Fallas, the festival of fires, takes place every March in Valencia. The city does resemble something between a carnival, a war zone and a fireworks display, with ninots displays (puppets to be burnt) all over the city. Either go for Las Fallas and the parties, or avoid it if you're not a fan of big crowds. Or large fires.
On the last Wednesday of every August, La Tomatina tomato fruit festival takes over Bunol, a small region of Valencia. Whilst the festival isn't located directly in the city centre, most accommodation sells out in Valencia for this festival – and it's not just about the food fight. Parties usually surround the Wednesday in the lead up and the come down, and it's a very fun time to be in Valencia.
Spring and autumn are wonderful times to visit for spring sunshine and warm temperatures, without heatstroke and school crowds. Those looking to take advantage of Valencia's beach should head over in summer for those scorching temperatures and beach parties, especially Valencia's Pride Festival in June.

City guide: what to see and do in Valencia
Ciudad de las Artes y Las Ciencias: Valencia took what used to be an old river bed, and turned it into a modern architectural marvel. You could easily go and just take pictures from the outside, catching a few rays too, but there's also an Imax, Museum of Science and an Oceanographic Park inside (it's all much more interesting than it sounds – kids love the exhibits at the dolphinarium!).
Discover the Old Town and the Cathedral: Valencia Cathedral is the crowning jewel in this city, and it's right in the centre. Go to see it around midday, then take shelter from the heat by bar hopping around the Ciutat Vella (Old Town). Agua de Valencia is the local sup, and the Ceramics Museum is a great alternative if the city gets too hot.
Eat all the tapas in the Central Markets: Valencians are very proud of their paella, which means you'll have to sample plenty on your trip. The central markets are a great place to eat and take photos of the local produce: imagine dry cured hams hanging from the ceiling, bundles of juicy fresh fruit, and Valencian pastries to be enjoyed with a short, black coffee.
