Our host town: Valencia

Two decades of bold development has given Spain’s third-largest city some of the most striking architecture in the country, adding to the wealth of elegant art nouveau buildings that line the streets, as well as Gothic and Renaisssance monuments. With dynamic museums, a flourishing restaurant scene, lively nightlife, great shops and miles of beach, Valencia is bursting with Mediterranean exuberance.

Few places around the Mediterranean combine old and new in such a fascinating manner as Valencia. The compact, venerable old town is linked by an enchanting park to a glimpse of the future in the City of Arts and Sciences.
