As always, I love exploring Spain. It has so many incredible places to visit that it is difficult to get tired of traveling to this European country. While staying in Madrid for about 3 months, which I love because you can take advantage of being in the middle of the county and grabbing a train to so many towns nearby or a 4hrs trip. Obviously, one of those times, with my friend Paty, we decided to spend a weekend in Valencia and it was fun!

On this post, let me show you what where we explored, visited and did on a weekend, arriving around noon on a Friday and then almost the last train from Valencia back to Madrid. Cheap, fun and quick.

weekend in Valencia

You can take a bus, or like we did, we took a train in Atocha. Besides, it is always great to visit Atocha because of how beautiful the station is inside. By train it took us about 2 hours, which we found it super easy for a weekend in the capital of the homonymous province and the Valencian Community.

We walked throughout the center visiting, obviously the Central Market of Valencia which is excellent, even if you don’t buy anything, it is beautiful inside and out. We also arrived at the Botanical Garden (Jardí Botànic) passing through Portal de Quart, some interesting towers that were defenses for the city and were built there in the 1400s. The walk was very pleasant indeed.

We couldn’t visit the beach because it was during Spring and it was still too cold for us… well, there was no one in the beach :), so not just cold for us. But we strolled around the area of the Malvarrosa Beach.

And obviously, the main attraction of Valencia, a good walk through the City of Arts and Sciences. What a spectacle of a place! Here we spent a good time exploring and getting to know every detail.

Here is a video showing you more about what we got to enjoy during a weekend (we arrived at noon on a Friday, we had all day on Saturday and almost all day of Sunday).
