In a few days we will welcome back one of the most romantic events of the year. Special cards, romantic evenings together, and walks in the moonlight will remind us what it means to be in love. What better way to to celebrate than with spending Valentine´s Day in Valencia, a wonderful city where lovers can enjoy countless getaways, restaurants and magical destinations for a few days they’ll never forget.
Nothing is quite like letting yourself be carried away by adventurous spirit visiting Cabecera park in the first light of the morning, or experiencing the medieval wonders of Morella or the enchanting walks and gardens in Turia. If you are looking for large doses of nature and history, the City of Arts and Sciences will offers you an extraordinary journey down the most fascinating paths of knowledge.
Despite being one of the great European tourist paradises, in Valencia you won’t need to shell out large sums to impress your partner. Touring the old town by bike, strolling through the most beautiful neighbourhoods of Motocalesa or taking to the sky in a hot air balloon are just some of the foolproof plans to achieve it.
At noon, the Malvarrosa and Saler beaches offer the ideal setting to lie down for a romantic picnic, accompanied by the best of the Mediterranean climate as always. Now is a great time to try the refreshing Tiger nut horcahata, a local jewel that you can discover in the best horchatarias in Valencia.
Many couples decide to take a catamaran ride through the port of Valencia, or to slip through the waters of the Albufera by boat to watch a dreamy sunset. Couples also won’t be disappointed by the wide range of leisure on offer, espeically in Valencia at night, with innumerable theatres and concerts, where you’ll have a wild time, without forgetting bowling alleys, karaoke, nightclubs and lots more.
Valencian cuisine will bring the finest flavours and aromas to your romantic evening, with its pumpkin fritters, rice dishes, salads and delicious starters. Apicius, Vertical or Casa Ángel are charming restaurants where Mediterranean delicacies will surpass your expectations. But if you prefer something more exotic, the Bajo Flores, Bacco or La Lambrusquería pizzerias are all great exponents of Italian food.
To round off Valentine´s Day in Valencia, the romantic hotels the city has to offer will delight any couple. Hotel Swiss Moraira, La Serena Hotel Altea, Hotel de la Playa or the elegant Zenit and Westin, are all perfect for immortalising the experience.
As it could not be otherwise, an exchange of gifts usually puts the final touch on a memorable day, but let’s not forget those immaterial details. In this regard, the starry skies of Valencia are the best gift a couple can receive. And Valentine´s Day in Valencia is a magnificent opportunity.
