A day out at Bioparc
You can see crocodiles, tigers, gorillas…even a distant cousin of the famous King Julien. Meet them up close without any barriers as you experience the excitement of an authentic African adventure at BIOPARC VALÈNCIA - the attraction that is most highly-rated by our visitors. Just next door you’ll find Cabecera Park, an enormous garden where you can have a picnic while the children run around and play, surrounded by nature. You can also take a pleasant trip on the lake in one of its swan-shaped boats.
An underwater journey in the Oceanogràfic
We suggest you take an underwater journey through the largest aquarium in Europe. Experience the thrill of training marine mammals, sleeping with sharks or feeding the penguins. The OCEANOGRÀFIC IN THE CITY OF ARTS AND SCIENCES offers you all this and much more. It’s too good to miss!
A boat trip on the Albufera
Visit the ALBUFERA NATURAL PARK and discover the great biodiversity of this protected area. Be sure to take a boat trip on the main lake aboard one of its typical vessel.
The most amusing museums
Have fun with the latest scientific innovations, journey into space to find out what our planet looks like from the International Space Station and experience the adventure of 3D images. The HEMISFÈRIC and THE SCIENCE MUSEUM at THE CITY OF ARTS AND SCIENCES await you.
Enjoy the beauty of nature
València also has a number of large parks and gardens where you can spend a pleasant day with the family. You can play at being happy Lilliputians climbing over the giant Gulliver at the enormous children’s park with its numerous slides, or you can have a whale of a time at the Viveros Gardens, a large traffic-free space with swings and an open area where different children’s activities take place throughout the year.
Learn about Las Fallas
The Fallas Museum will allow you to learn all about València’s most international festival – Las Fallas. It’s a fun place for children, as they can admire its more than 100 ninots (the famous sculptures burnt during the festival) which reflect the events of recent years and see how the techniques used to create them have evolved.
A day at the beach
Enjoy a day at the seaside on our city beaches, Las Arenas and Malvarrosa, with their attractive promenade dotted with children’s play areas. Take a dip, go snorkelling or build sand castles, all just 15 minutes away from the city centre.
