Places to visit in Valencia:
Shopping in Valencia : All the advantages of shopping in a large city. Typical products include ceramics (the worldfamousartisit Lladro comes from Valencia). We recommend horchata (a very refreshingdrink which looks a bit like milk and is made from tiger nuts), also the fartonsa la Alboraya (sweet bread sticks). Visit the Mercado Central where you can find a wide range of fresh local products (even if you don't want to buy anything it's still worth a visit just for the experience). Try some delicious creamfilled pastries with chocolate (the best place to try these is in the area nearthe Cathedral).
Accommodation-Hotels. See our section on hotelsin Valencia. For individual reviews, check out this ruralhotel near Valencia. The hotel Molide Canysett is another interesting choice. TheEl Saler Paradoris the nearest parador to Valencia, but is not one of the best of the network of paradors (unless you want to spend your holiday playinggolf on the Saler golf course).
