Your tour begins with a panoramic overview of both old and new Valencia. Passing The City of Arts you’ll head towards the heart of the city with its many historical buildings and monuments. 

 

Upon arrival at the ‘City of Porcelain’, otherwise known as the Lladró Factory, you’ll be taken through the production chain, learning about the fascinating production of the Lladró porcelain. Lladró was started by three brothers in the 1950’s in a small workshop. The family-run workshop saw the birth of the renowned stylised porcelain sculptures, which have earned Lladró well-deserved fame worldwide. In the Museum are exhibits of the early Lladró pieces, and there will also be an opportunity to purchase any item of Lladró in the shop at the end of your tour.

 

Afterwards, reboard the coach and head back into Valencia to visit two of the city’s best shopping areas – the Golden Mile and Plaza Redonda. The Golden Mile boasts a myriad of designer stores and high-end fashion boutiques, whilst Playa Redonda offers a unique setting in the heart of the city with a choice of traditional craft stalls, cafés and small eateries.

 

Enjoy a taste of local flavours of the nut based drink, ‘horchata’, a typical nut based Spanish drink, at a horchateria in the city before your return journey back to the port.
