Valencia RECOMMENDATIONS See all

Valencia by Bike

People often recommend cycling around small, historic European towns as a great way to see the place and it is; you can cover more distance than on foot but can still look at the sights on the way, stopping whenever something strikes your fancy. The major problem with it is that the streets can be narrow, filled with pedestrians and impatient local drivers, especially the taxis. But Valencia is one city where I would definitely recommend hiring a bicycle for half or a whole day because they have created one of the best places to cycle: Turia.

It’s called the pride of Valencia and with good reason. The clever city folk diverted one river into the other and thus created a park which virtually circles the city. This means you can use it to get almost anywhere you want to go. It’s wide and filled with different types of parks, playgrounds, cafes, sculptures and paths.
