Tailor-made School Trips to Valencia

Overview

  • Overview

    Valencia is Spain’s third largest city and has undergone a major regeneration to emerge as one of the most modern cities in Europe, successfully combining both the old and the new. The old city, contained within Moorish walls, has a rich architectural history with religious buildings, and palaces that were built over many centuries. In contrast, major projects such as the futuristic City of Arts and Sciences, designed by Santiago Calatrava and Félix Candela, and the new Congress Centre, designed by Sir Norman Foster have revamped its cultural infrastructure, making it one of the best urban destinations for a school trip or educational visit.

  • Reasons to Visit
    1. Mercado Central

      Constructed in 1928, Valencia’s central market is one of the most beautiful in all of Spain; a vast Modernista concoction of wrought iron and stained glass, surmounted with cupolas and whimsical weathervanes. The region of Valenciana is not known as Spain’s orchard for nothing and inside you’ll find a breathtaking array of colourful, fresh produce with almost 1,000 stalls to choose from.

    2. Miguelete Bell tower

      The Gothic-style Cathedral tower is a symbol of the city. It rises to a height of 50.85 metres, which is also the size of its perimeter. This eight-sided tower owes its name to one of its twelve bells, specifically the bell that marks the hours. The climb up the 207 steps rewards with splendid views over the ancient city.

    3. Day trip to Sagunto

      On the coast 16 miles north of Valencia, Sagunto is a town piled onto a hillside under a ruined castle. Occupied by Iberians, Romans, Moors and Christians it is packed with vestiges of this rich history. The Jewish quarter, one of the oldest in Spain, is a dense labyrinth of compact, whitewashed houses, tiny passages and archways.

    4. Day trip to Requena and Torre Oria Winery

      Requena is a monumental city in the Ayora Valley and has a wine growing tradition going back many centuries. Underneath the town is an extensive network of caves which have been used in various ways throughout the centuries including storage places and wine cellars. There is a guided visit of the Torre Oria winery with a wine tasting at the end of the visit.

    5. Day trip to Alicante

      Although descended upon every year by thousands of tourists, it nevertheless has managed to remain authentic and pleasingly Spanish. Elegant, palm-lined boulevards stretch along the seafront, decorated with colourful azulejo tiles, and the old town is an atmospheric huddle of narrow streets. Must do’s include a visit to the Santa Barbara Medieval fortress, and the Modern Art Museum, that includes works by Dali, Picasso and Miro.

    6. Terra Mitica Theme Park (Alicante)

      The leading theme park in the area offering all the usual thrills and spills themed around 5 Mediterranean civilizations. Starting in Ancient Egypt, visitors can see the Pyramid of Keops or slide down the Cataracts of the Nile before heading to Greece, the Land of the Gods, with its huge Olympia theatre. Rome is next, offering the dizzy Flight of the Phoenix and the largest wooden roller coaster in Europe. A guaranteed crowd pleaser.
