Meet your foodie guide in Plaza de la Reina in the early evening, and set off by foot to explore the surrounding streets of Valencia’s old town. Stroll past landmarks including the city cathedral, Serrano’s Towers, the Almoina Archaeological Center, and the Lonja building, plus public plazas where locals gather to drink, dine, and socialize as evening settles across the city.
Delve deeper into Valencian gastronomy at the Central Market, housed in a beautiful antique building. See vendors selling piles of fresh produce, and learn about common ingredients found in regional cooking as your guide shares the secrets of Valencian cuisine far beyond the famous national dish of paella.
After working up an appetite at the market, treat your taste buds with a guided tasting of three regional wines paired with authentic tapas. Gain insight into the winemaking process and learn what makes coastal Spanish varietals unique. At the end of the 3-hour tour, you’ll have a new appreciation for the fantastic flavors of Valencia and will be ready to tackle any of the city’s many wine or tapas bars like a local.
