Start your Valencia history lesson in the late morning at the city’s Plaza de la Companyia. You’ll continue on foot as you step back in time to Valencia’s ‘golden age’ in the 15th and 16th centuries.
Listen as your guide explain’s Valencia’s important role in Spain’s Aragon Kingdom, and its 'Golden Age,' a period after the city’s Christian conquest that resulted in a flourishing of economic, artistic and cultural growth. As you learn about this key period in the city’s history, you’ll stop to visit a number of Valencia landmarks, including the Torres de Quart, Torres de Serrano, Viejo Palacio del Ayuntamiento, Palacio Borja (Borja palace), Plaza del Correo Viejo, and the Llotja de la Seda.
Once you’ve gotten your fill of Valencia’s past, it’s time to stuff yourself with some delicious paella, one of the city’s most iconic dishes. Enjoy a plate of this famous foodstuff, accompanied by an included drink and coffee. Your excursion ends after your meal.
