    Group of us heading there in September with Ryanair. Anyone got any advice/tips on what to do, where to stay etc? Any good places to go out or eat?

    Cheers

    Beautiful City the nicest in Espana IMO, i actually stayed in a hostel when i was there, i can recommend it if you like unless you want to stay in a Hotel.

    There is lots to see and do in Valencia, go visit the http://www.mrfs.net/trips/2003/Spain/Valencia/Valencia.html
    cathedral there it's absolutely beautiful, and plenty of Cafe Bars to sit back and relax as well, actually when we were there we must have seen about 10 or so wedding receptions around that area, unreal.

    Another must visit is Plaza de la Virgen,very nice around there, lots to see and do,also be sure and visit http://www.arcspace.com/architects/calatrava/camino_moreras/
    really smart looking futuristic design.

    There is also a massive bullring in the city but i personally think these typeof places are disgusting so didn't go near that place,but everyone to their own.

    Plenty of bars and clubs, http://www.radiocityvalencia.com/rcity.htm comes recommended, more of a local crowd but people friendly and good cerveza and music, went to a few more cafe bars as well but as the drink flowed the name of these bars escape me:o there is a massive club right by the sea i also cant recall the name of it but it opens until about 9am,try get there before 3am aqs the queue gets massive,imm sure someone can tell you the name of it.

    The Beach itself is absolutely gorgeous as well and is mostly full during the hot summer days (even at nites, we went skinny dipping one nite @ 4am:D )

    Valencia comes highly recommended, ive not met anyone who;s been there and and didn't have a great time, and it's cheaper than Madrid and Barcelona as well, and unlike Barcelona i didn't encounter any type of pickpockets or any crime...have fun.

    a must in valencia, is eating a paella (valencia is the home of the paella) in one of the restaurants on the beach. Go down about a mile or 2, don't go to the first ones. it's delicious

    Thanks guys. What was the name of the hostel, we haven't booked anywhere yet. Are the beaches close to the city? Sounds like a good place, looking forward to it now!

    Stayed in both Home and Indigo hostels in Valencia, both close enough to each other, nice relaxed International atmosphere where English seems to be the preffered language as there are so many people from all over.

    Beach is close to the city, 15 mins walk or thereabouts.

    Yes Valencia is a great place!! Best seen during las fallas in march.
    Try and take in a football game while you are there too. one of the best teams in Europe.
    One of the biggest aquariums? (huge) in the europe too-worth a visit.
    Dont miss out on the paella.

    Yeah we're going to go to the Valencia - Getafe match which is on the Wednesday we are there. We're also thinking of going to that Terra Mitica theme park. I'm looking forward to this Paella now
