Valencia is a stunning modern city with a rich Roman and Gothic history. While you’re in port in Valencia, explore the city at your own pace on a hop-on hop-off sightseeing bus tour! Travel between the two routes on an open-top, double-decker bus, hopping on and off wherever you want. This sightseeing shore excursion provides you with 17 convenient stops around town so you can see attractions like the Cathedral of Valencia or San Pio V Palace.
See the Silk Exchange, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Visit the Quart Towers and the Serrano Towers, Valencia’s old city gates. See the futuristic-style football stadium Nou Mestalla, or visit Valencia’s zoo, Bioparc.
Both routes each take approximately 1.5 hours. The buses depart every 20 to 30 minutes from each stop – the closest stop to the cruise port is Stop 7, El Puerto. Tickets are valid for 24 hours from first use.
Albufera Natural Park:
To begin your included tour of Albufera Natural Park, get off at Stop 5 (Centro Comercial Aqua) of the Maritime Route (Blue Line) and jump on the Albufera Sightseeing Tour to discover the beauty of this natural reserve. Located 9.3 miles (15 km) south of Valencia’s city center, the park is an important stopover point for migratory birds and one of the most important natural reserves in Spain. See rice fields, sand dunes and a long, deserted stretch of sand and pine trees along the Mediterranean coast. Enjoy a 30-minute boat ride on the lake.
The Albufera sightseeing tour takes approximately two hours. After your tour, you can re-join the hop-on hop-off bus for the rest of your tour.
