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!

Thank you Sealionlady.  I can hardly wait to read your review. This is a trip I am hoping to take soon.  Are you able to wander off on your own.  I have limited breathing ability and often I break away from the group so as not to slow them down.  I have been limiting myself to river cruises but this one looks like I might be able to handle it,

Thanks, Kim
