We had no plans for Valencia as the information online about visiting this port was limited. We were lucky enough to speak with a Spanish couple on the ship in the morning.
They had been to Valencia in July and thought that the Museum of Arts and Science was worth checking out. We could see this architecturally stunning building from the ship, but it was even better up close. It has a space age look and is surrounded by water features. It is connected to a wonderfully long park similar to Central Park or Golden Gate Park with ample pathways for walking or biking.
We found a bike rental place right at the entrance with just one tandem bike – we were in luck! Away we went for an adventure filled day in Valencia. Thankfully we had experience on a tandem bike and it made the day lots of fun.
We stopped to enjoy a coffee before our more exciting gelato find with flavors including lentils, tortilla de patata, and our “favorite” anchovies!
Another interesting find were the balls that people would get into on the water at the Museum of Arts and Sciences. Interestingly, it was mostly children. Still not sure how we felt about the water balls.
