For Our Foodie Travellers

Welcome to Valencia! This port city which lies on Spain’s southeastern coast, is known for its City of Arts and Sciences, with futuristic structures including a planetarium, an oceanarium and an interactive museum which are all worth visiting. Among the many fabulous Modernist buildings and a long stretch of beach, we thought it would be important not to forget, that Valencia is known as the home of the famous, delicious, world renowned Paella! Therefore, during this Travel Package, entirely dedicated to The Foodie Travellers, we have assembled a bunch of activities that you'd be delighted to experience  - from a Typical Valencian farmhouse Tour to a fantastic special lunch in the countryside, the discovery of the most typical Tapas and Wine places in Valencia and, last but not least, a special cooking class just dedicated to the Valencian Paella!
