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, which includes a planetarium, oceanarium and interactive museum have revamped its cultural infrastructure.
The Bioparc Valencia is a new generation zoo which aims to immerse its visitors into the wild habitats that have been created there; Students can enjoy, practically without barriers, viewing the different species in spectacular landscapes as they would do so nature.
Other visits may include a Day Trip to Sagunto, a town piled onto a hillside under a ruined castle or a boat trip to the Sant Josep Caves which is the longest navigable underground river in Europe.
Finally, Valencia has several superb Beaches and a green ribbon of park winding right through the city. The wide breath of visits available make Valencia a perfect choice for a Spanish school trip.

Top Tips from Our Travel Experts
"In Valencia you are spoilt for choice, beaches and parks, old and new they all mix in this dry river bed. As you enter through the Serrano towers, you are encapsulated by the history coming to life, you can wander through the cobbled streets exploring the old town with the Cathedral and Market or visit the Fallas museum and find out about the most famous festival. In contrast a visit to the ultra-modern Arts and Science museum with the largest aquarium is a must with its incredible architecture. For a bit of excitement, with thrills and spills you can go along the coast to Benidorm’s Terra Mitica theme park."
