I am currently on the ¨Spain´s Cultural Capitals¨´ trip and will be posting a more complete review on my return. But I wanted to give everyone a ´heads-up´on how great Valencia is. Not nearly as well known as Madrid or Barcelona, this city is an unexpected delight ..... beautiful gardens and unusual museums, a wonderful beach, and a vibrant city life. Our hotel is in easy walking distance of the cathedral square, where there are numerous sidewalk cafes. It´s a lovely to sit and sip an Agua de Valencia (like a mimosa, only better) in the evening, while all manner of people, young, not-so-young, moms with baby carriges, stroll by, and the cathedral bells ring. I am so glad this lovely city was included on this trip!
