Let’s start at the Oceanographic Museum.
We suggest you get your tickets in advance, since there are usually long lines to enter the Oceanographic, so buying your tickets online is the best option.
You’ll probably spend lots of hours inside the Oceanographic if you really want to explore it all, so be sure to grab something to eat or head outside to the Hemisferic’s café.
The Agora is one of the most impressive buildings of the City of Arts and Sciences. However, it’s usually reserved for big international events such as the Valencia Open 500 Tennis Tournament.
Still, you can take pictures of its façade, as well as some of the Pont de l’Assut de l’Or (bridge of the dam of gold) and, depending on the time of the year, you might even catch a special exhibition inside the Agora.
Taking a walk around the Umbracle on a beautiful Summer day when the sun is shining is one of the best things you can do to relax in Valencia.
The Umbracle features several areas which are seamlessly integrated with the space: the Art Promenade, featuring different works of art throughout the year and the Garden of Astronomy, a small space with some astronomical instruments such as a solar and lunar clock.
Prince Felipe’s Science Museum (although he’s now King, that’s still its name) is focused on interactive science.
Nevertheless, it’s not as fun as it looks like for some, since it’s focused on the younger ones in the family, so the time you spend inside will depend on your particular interest.
The Museum’s Free-Flow restaurant offers meals with views of the Turia gardens.
Ideal to end your afternoon at the CAC relaxing and enjoying a projection on its IMAX cinema.
A large dome with an equally large screen and good sound quality, the Hemisferic offers diverse films and documentaries in different languages, thanks to individual 3D glasses.
The last session begins at 8pm and they usually last 35-45 minutes.
Our suggestion to end this day trip is to enjoy a unique dinner at the Submarino restaurant. Its name means underwater and that’s almost what it is: a large aquarium surrounding the restaurant and offering an unusual experience.
It’s really increased the approximate cost of our itinerary, so if price is an issue, you can skip it. In any case, most tourists who return to Valencia, also return to the City of Arts so there’ll be other opportunities, also to visit the Palace of the Arts, in case you’re an opera fan.
