A classic in nature: the boat ride on the Albufera

If you are looking for a relaxing plan in a natural enclave for Sunday, you can visit the Albufera Natural Park of Valencia. It is located on the outskirts of the city and its environment is nature in its purest state. Here you will find the best sunsets in the city and you can enjoy a boat ride while you learn about the gastronomic culture of Valencia and its ecosystems.

Discovering the City of Arts and Sciences

Most of the museums in Valencia open their doors on Sundays, and some of them are usually free of charge. Take the opportunity to climb the bell tower of the cathedral: the Miguelete, visit the Torres de Quart, or be surprised by the charm of the Museum of Fine Arts of Valencia. In addition, this 2023 has been celebrated as the centenary of the death of the artist Sorolla and the city has been filled with exhibitions. Until February you have the exhibition "Sorolla through Light" at the Bancaja Foundation.

However if what you want is to soak up science and get into one of the most impressive architectural and cultural complexes of the city, we recommend you to visit the City of Arts and Sciences. This plan is ideal for doing it with children and you can choose between the different buildings. The Hemisferic, the Interactive Science Museum, the largest Oceanographic Aquarium in Europe and the Palace of the Arts Reina Sofia, among others.

Culinary experiences

Recently we told you about where to dine in the Ruzafa neighborhood and we saw how the gastronomic options in the city are endless. However, it is true that when you think of Valencia only one dish comes to mind. And there are few things more Valencian than paella. This star dish has become a gastronomic symbol all over the world. Whoever tastes this rice wants to repeat it. But few places use the ingredients and get the flavors of yesteryear. If what you want is to taste the most typical dish of Valencia and end the week in style, take note of our recommendation on where to eat the best paella in Valencia.

Enjoy the Valencian coast

If you feel like ending the week near the sea, we invite you to walk along the promenade and disconnect from the hustle and bustle of the city. For the more daring, the port of the Marina opens many of its terraces on Sundays where you can enjoy good company, the sunset, and the sea. 

To end the day, we suggest you go to one of the most historic neighborhoods of Valencia: the Cabanyal, home of fishermen. Here you will find the new gastronomic market of the city, the Mercader Cabanyal where you can taste different types of cuisine.
