Discovering Valencia’s Family Friendly Museums followed by Paella

Discovering Valencia’s Family Friendly Museums followed by Paella

Setting off early in the morning from our base at the Valencia Camper Park, we’ve decided to see what Valencia can offer… we’ve already seen the Garden of Turia by bike, been amazed by the Bioparc so what else is there to see in Valencia using the Valencia Tourist Card.

Heading for the metro stop at Turia, we’ve been amazed by the quality of the public transport.. it seems to be rarely late, operates across the entire day/evening and seems to be able to whisk you away to pretty much anywhere you want across both the site and the surrounding Albufera wetlands.
Valencia’s brilliant Mediterranean climate makes all the difference… the temperature has been hovering around 20ºC in November making it a great option for a winter city break?? So we’ve loved strolling round with the sun on our faces, although we have needed a jumper each evening! The city has some brilliant walkways towards the sea so having seen the vibrant Central Market and the inner Old City last time we visited, we headed for the beach to start the day!
Walking down the palm tree lined seafront boulevard, both girls took the opportunity to burn off some energy before lunch on the fantastic outdoor gym equipment that is all over the beachfront. Before we ended up at La Alegría de la Huerta for the regional dish – Paella!!

Where better the enjoy the regional dish Paella

Paella has been a family favourite for a while now, all started by Catherine’s parents who introduced her to Spanish food at a young age. Tapas, Gazpacho & Paella are all regular foods in the van.. easy to produce and super tasty!

 

So where better in Valencia to enjoy this food and learn a little more about what we were eating. For instance we didn’t know that Paella is more a ‘chicken & rabbit’ dish here not just seafood.. or how delicious the Sobrasada Croquettes and Horchata Pudding dessert would be!

 

There’s plenty more museums to enjoy across Valencia including the Silk Museum & the Natural History Museum… but the kids were shattered by now… but that’s good news as we’ve left more to see in Valencia when we return!! And we’ll certainly do that having been captivated by this wonderfully family friendly city!!
