Valencia City of the Arts & Sciences (Ciudad de las Artes y las Ciencias)
The museum city is divided into four sections. The Hemisferic houses a planetarium, IMAX cinema and laser show.
The Principe Felipe building looks like the skeleton of a whale, and is where the science really gets hands on.
The Oceanographic aquarium includes polar exhibits, coral reefs from the Red Sea, Mediterranean seascapes and underwater tunnels.
Botanical species and sculptures are highlighted in the L’Umbracle walkway, and performing arts and opera are hosted in El Palau de les Arts Reina Sofia.
excellent, felt like meeting friend in Valencia to show you around - it was just 3 of us in group and the lady showing us around was great :)
This was an excellent small group walking tour...Jose' was fantastic. Pointed out the highlights and the local gems. Highly recommended
The tour was very informative in that it helped me to know what was where (and how to get to them in a city with many narrow winding streets) but also in regards to the history of monuments, museums, government buildings, plazas, etc. I learned a great deal about current trends and age old traditions as well. Thank you, Beatrice! You are a phenomenal guide!!
Buses run here from the center of town, and the Alameda metro stop is a 15 minute walk from the complex.
