Sights & Sounds
It's almost impossible to visit Valencia without reading about it, hearing about it or seeing it way, way off in the distance; The City of Arts and Sciences really is worth your time. The striking modern architecture is incredible, and what lies inside is even more stunning. There's an opera house, science museum and planetarium, but it's the aquarium (Europe's largest) that impresses us most with its wide range of weird and wonderful fish - failing that, there's always plenty of beaches, Malvarrosa being the local favourite!
Electropura looks as if a Spanish architect from the 1970's got rather tipsy one evening and decided to design his dream disco, and when he woke up the next day, decided to build it! This lively venue is seriously funky, and the emphasis here is solely on drinking and dancing with your nearest and dearest to retro-chic vinyl sounds. Perfecto!
Where? Carrer del Pintor Salvador Abril, 20 46005, Valencia
As you'd expect, Spanish clubs can get pretty humid...unless they're outside! L'Umbracle is a massive open air nightlife venue where you can party amidst palm trees and other exotic plants indigenous to Valencia. This huge walkway is usually part of the City of Arts and Sciences, but on selected evenings it transforms into a luxurious party-goers paradise.
Where? Av. del Professor Lopez Pinero, 7 46013, Valencia
