Highs & Lows
The Fallas Festival in Valencia & the Rooftop pool at Hotel Oscar, Madrid.
Many sites are spread across the two cities so a decent amount of time management & Ubers are necessary to fit everything in.
Q & A
What would you have changed?
In terms of Valencia, I would have liked to have spent more time exploring the local beaches and trying more food at local restaurants as for this trip we had a limited budget.
How was the food?
Paella, Sangria, Tapas and ice-cream across both locations are incredible!
What tips would you give a friend?
Hire bicycles in Valenica, try the local paella, definitely go for either the Fallas Festival or the La Tomatina festival tto see something different!
Bring suncream for Madrid, a jacket for Valencia as in the evenings during March it can be a bit chilly. bring comfy trainers for both as you will be walking around a lot!
Bicycle is a great way to explore and reduce pollution, metro cards are a more ecomincal way of using public transport.
Airbnb is a great way to really feel like a local immersed in the cities, whilst giving you privacy and the option to keep meals economical by finding an apartment with a well equipped kitchen.
