During your stay in Valencia, make your way out of the Old Town, just south of the city’s main train station and head to Ruzafa Area – the place to be in Valencia. A formerly shabby neighbourhood has a vibe unlike any other part of town and is well worth exploring. You’ll find independent art galleries, vintage clothing boutiques, and organic cafes and food shops, stylish bars and restaurants. While stalls in the brutalist Mercat de Russafa are piled with fresh produce. The streets and buildings are dotted with bright shades of blue, green, orange and red. It’s a multicultural area filled with young professionals, artists, creatives, hipsters and students. This is a great place to spend a chilled out afternoon or evening out in some of Valencia’s best restaurants and bars.
