Few of Europe's modern architectural feats are as beautiful as Valencia's Conference Centre. Considered the best in the world, it hosts events ranging from Google Academy Meetings to comedy nights. One of Valencia's unique events is Fallas, during which locals and visitors make and burn large papier-mâché models of just about anything.
One of the best restaurants in Valencia is Navarro, which also happens to be a great budget option. Valencia hotels in the Malvarrosa Beach area serve the genuine Valencian paella, with many offering vegetarian and vegan options. Walk around the city for a bit and look for bunyols, which are pan-fried donut-like snacks.
Plaza del Patriarca is the place to go for major designer brands like Louis Vuitton. If you want to take some wine home, head to Gode Gastroclub, which has one of the most enviable selections in Europe. Kanda Books is an international bookshop, featuring good reads in a variety of languages.
If your Valencia hotel is in the Barrio del Carmen, you only need to step outside your front door to see the city's old-age architecture. For a more modern experience, head to the City of Arts and Science, featuring one of Europe's best planetariums. The Mercat Central is also a great destination for modernists. L'Oceanogràfic is located in the east of the city where visitors can see a range of marine animals including dolphins, sharks and penguins.
Both football and American football are popular sports in Valencia. The Valencia Firebats and Valencia Giants are local American football teams, and Valencia C.F. is an UEFA Champion's League winner. The long coastline of Valencia makes it a popular choice for sailing and windsurfing.
