Valencia is the third largest city in Spain and is second to none with two older sisters, Madrid and Barcelona, for vitality, cultural excitement and traditions, but is happy to not be under the spotlight of mass tourism. Carefree, relaxed, cultured but never snobbish, Valencia is a city with an exceptional climate, situated in a favorable position along the east coast.

Valencia is a city full of attractions for tourists. A characteristic and charming Old Town is in contrast to the futuristic City of Arts and Sciences designed by internationally renowned architect Santiago Calatrava, a Valencia native. His innovative works, although costly and controversial, and his unique style have certainly helped to bring Valencia on the international stage, but the fame of this city outside of Spain is due to something quite different.

It is the capital of the autonomous community and is famous for its important port on the Mediterranean. Like all cities in Spain in the late twentieth century and early twenty-first century in Valencia numerous architectural and urban projects have been implemented, which have transformed further: the most impressive is the City of Arts and Sciences, a new neighborhood southeast of the center designed by Valencian architect Santiago Calatrava.

What to see & what to do

Park & Landmarks

LLadrò Factory and the National Museum of Ceramics and Decoratives Arts

About 20 minutes transfer from the port of Valencia, you have the opportunity to visit the Lladro factory, renowned place of production of pottery and collectible porcelain. Thanks to some interesting tours you can go to the factory and observe the various steps of the production process and watch a multimedia presentation of the company's history. After leaving Lladró, you can visit the equally fabulous National Museum of Ceramics and Decorative Arts. Housed in the fifteenth-century Palacio del Marqués de Dos Aguas, the exceptional collection of the museum focuses on Valencian pottery, but also collects fabrics, paintings, porcelain, traditional costumes and furniture.

Natural Park of the Sierra de Espadan

A few kilometers north of Valencia, the beautiful region known as the Natural Park of the Sierra de Espadán, the second largest protected area of the Autonomous Community of Valencia. The longest navigable underground river in the world, the San Jose, flows through such a huge complex of caves, and small boat on which the climb will travel to delve into the various rooms of these spectacular caves.

The Turia Gardens

Valencia arose on the banks of the Turia River. The Turia river if, on the one hand, favored the settlement urban development, on the other hand, was due to permanent flooding and flooding. After the last flood of 1957, the authorities decided to divert the river, and where the first was his bed now lie the Turia Gardens, an oasis of greenery and peace in the town center. Among pine trees, oleanders and palms you can spend your free time here, making a jog along the paths or taking advantage of one of the sports facilities that offer Gardens. The main attraction of the park is a monumental sculpture of Gulliver, 70 meters long.

Animal Encounter

History & Culture

Cathedral of Valencia

The three portals to access the Valencia Cathedral, the Puerta de los Hierros, Puerta de Palau and the Puerta de los Apostoles, are the perfect synthesis of all artistic history that has passed through the city, the Romanesque, Gothic and Baroque . Built in the thirteenth century, the Cathedral is in place considered '' sacred 'in which already had arisen before a Roman temple and a Muslim mosque after. Of particular note is the attraction more interesting to those visiting the Cathedral of Valencia: the chalice that Jesus used at the Last Supper, the Holy Grail, that seems to be kept inside.

Lonja de la Seda

The Lonja de la Seda (Silk Exchange) was founded as a symbol of the golden age of Valencia, has been the center of commercial and cultural activities in the early sixteenth century. In 1996 it was declared World Heritage by UNESCO. A construction from a cow side with the grandeur of its structure, but on the other allured by the elegance of its ornaments. The Lonja is now home Cultural Academy of Valencia, often home to exhibitions.

The City of the Arts and the Science

It is about the architect Santiago Calatrava the design of such a huge complex, significant example of modern architecture. The City of Arts and Sciences encloses five spectacular sights inside: the Oceanogràfic, the Umbracle, the Palace of Arts, the Science Museum and the Hemisfèric. In a predominance of white, each element that composes the City of Sciences is built according to a different style, but by creating a perfect harmony of the whole.

Walking

Barrio del Carmen

Mercado Central de Valencia

In front of the magnificent building of the Lonja is a steel structure with stained-glass windows and hand-painted ceramics in the facade: the main market, with its 959 stalls of fresh produce. An interweaving of colors, smells and flavors in a modernist jewel. The market is divided into two parts: on the one hand fruit and vegetables, from the Valencian huerta (agricultural land area south of Valencia); the other a feast of meats, among which excel the Salamanca ham, and fish, with benches that offer real 'waterfall' of shellfish.

Paella Valenciana

Paella is the symbol par excellence of the cuisine of Valencia. Inside we put the rice, beans, chicken, rabbit and clams. There is everything that occurs in the earth and in the sea in front and behind Valencia. Fruit, vegetables and vegetables of the fertile countryside, along with fresh seafood and fish. Rice is not only the protagonist of Paella but the basis of all Valencian cuisine.

Pursuing your own passions can seem a lonely road in the short run, carries the risk of alienating those you love, but in the long run you gotta do what you love, because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind 🌊🌏☀️

| CHANGE YOUR LIFE 👊🏻

J’étais ce qu’on appelle une jeune femme banale, discrète, peu sûre d’elle, mal dans son corps, incapable de se sentir bien...

J’ai pris conscience de ce qui n’allait pas, j’ai essayé, j’ai échoué, j’ai recommencé encore et encore, j’ai changé ma façon de me tenir, ma façon de penser, mon quotidien, mon job, ma vie entière même 😱 parfois avec des craintes, des doutes, des larmes..... Mais p***** que ça en valait la peine!!!

Je suis devenue une femme forte, je sais ce que je veux et ce que je ne veux plus, je me transforme, je m’épanouie et surtout j’ai enfin le sentiment de vivre 🖤

Et si je l’ai fait, pourquoi pas toi ? Qu’est ce qui t’empêche d’être cette personne que tu rêves d’être ?

« Pendant des années j’ai attendu que ma vie change, mais maintenant je sais que c’était elle qui attendait que moi je change. »

Décembre n’est plus très loin, et Noël non plus🎅🏼
Alors j’avoue, je n’aime pas le froid🤣
Comme tu peux le voir, je suis plutôt plage, cocotiers et soleil☀️
Mais la période que j’adore, c’est celle de Noël❤️
J’ai eu la chance d’être aux USA pour cette période et comme c’est beau😍
Ces décorations, ses musiques, ses Merry Xmaaaaas🎄

Si on pouvait demander un cadeau à Santa Claus?
Pour moi?
Sans hésiter, repartir en voyage!!✈️🌍

Et vous? Vous rêver de quoi?

| PERFECTIONNISTE...✨

J’ai toujours été complexée, par mes cernes, mes grains de beauté, mon poids, mes vergetures... du plus loin que je me rappelle j’ai toujours été a chercher les défauts et ça m’arrive encore par moment 😉 je suis quelqu’un de perfectionniste et de très critique envers moi même... je vis avec ça depuis si longtemps déjà 🤷🏼‍♀️
Cette habitude de scruter les détails pour trouver ce qui me dérange...pour tenter d’améliorer ci et la...

Mais avec les années, je me demande si le vrai bonheur ne se trouve pas dans l’acceptation de tout ces petits défauts qui font de nous ce que nous sommes 🤔

Et au final je suis convaincue qu’on est critique envers nous même uniquement pour rentrer dans un idéal que l’on voit sans arrêt notamment ici sur les réseaux ✨

Alors oui je continuerai à prendre soin de moi, à faire du sport, à manger équilibrer et à aimer m’apprêter, uniquement pour m’épanouir encore plus... mais je ne cherche plus à plaire à tout le monde... Je suis moi même et j’en suis fière 🖤✨

Et toi quel sont les mauvaises habitudes que tu aimerai ou que tu va t’efforcer d’arrêter ?

A LA CROISÉE DES CHEMINS 🧭
.
Lorsque l’on s’engage dans une nouvelle aventure, qu’elle soit sentimentale, personnelle, professionnelle ou entrepreneuriale, tout est parfait au commencement. La motivation et l’enthousiasme emplissent notre corps et notre tête, nous nous sentons forts et capables de gravir cet inaccessible sommet qui se dresse devant nous. 🏔
.
Puis, le temps passe, les efforts s’accumulent, la fatigue se fait alors sentir sur ce long chemin, parfois grisant, parfois monotone, parfois décevant.
.
On croise parfois, lors de notre ascension, des personnes qui ont jeté l’éponge, qui retournent d’où ils viennent, la tête basse. On a parfois envie d’en faire de même, honnêtement.
.
On se demande pourquoi on s’inflige tout ça, qu’on était plus tranquille avant, plus confortable, surtout mentalement.
.
Tu le vois ce point ? Celui où tu n’es plus vraiment au début, et encore loin de la fin ? Ce no-man’s-land psychologique, ou l’envie d’abandonner tiraille ardemment la motivation inaugurale ? Ou on se sait plus si l’on doit se résigner, ou continuer d’avancer ?
.
Tu es à la croisée des chemins.
.
A cet endroit précis, la plupart font demi-tour. La plupart abandonnent.
.
Pour devenir différent, persévères là ou ils démissionnent.
.
C’est maintenant que tout se joue.
De ta décision à cet instant précis dépend tout le reste.
.
Travailles, quand ils se reposent.
Encaisses, quand ils se plaignent.
Avances, quand il reculent.
Assumes, quand ils se défilent.
.
Fais une pause pour apprécier le chemin déjà parcouru, car oui tu avances. À ton rythme.
Repars, et ne te retournes plus.
Lèves la tête, et fixes le sommet.
Tu baisseras les yeux uniquement en haut, pour contempler la vallée. 👀

Good to know

 

  1. Clothing Casual summer wear can be worn during the day any time of the year; but be sure to bring a jacket or sweater for cooler evenings from December to March.
  2. Water Shoes Bring them if you go to swim or snorkel. Some of the water can be rocky after you walk from the beach.
  3. Sundries For convenience and cost concerns, bring your own everyday health and beauty products with you.
  4. Port Regulation Be aware that often in port it's forbidden to take off the ship fruits, vegetables and unsealed food items for local agricolture concern.
  5. Currency The official currency is the Mexican Peso, but the U.S. dollar is widely accepted throughout the island.
  6. Credit Card concern Pay attention using credit cards in Cozumel. Here several episodes of cloning happened. Use cash as much as possible.
  7. Time Zone EST (Eastern Standard Time) UTC/GMT -5 hours. No DST changes during the year. Make sure to keep the ship's time on your clock to come back board on time. Be aware of automatic changes of your smartphones.

Terminal

The new passenger terminal will serve cruise ships and regular passenger ferries. The terminal is provided with at least 4 berths. All moorings will be equipped with shore power. The terminal must be able to simultaneously manage two cruise ships (one homeport, one in transit) plus two ferries.

Remind

 

 

Transport

Valencia has a relatively small historic center, where the attractions and places of interest are concentrated and therefore within walking distance. Valencia’s public transport network consists of metro, trams, buses and buses. City buses run regularly in each location, very powerful and flexible schedules. Again the lines are distinguished by different colors and numbers. Then there are comfortable night and the tourist bus.
