Valencia, Spain is becoming one of the top tourist spots in the Mediterranean due to the developing port for cruise ships. The city will be one of the main stop overs for tourists, especially those in a Spain’s east coast cruise, since new terminals will be in place this year for several large ships to dock all in one time.
As a result of the development, five shipping companies will make Valencia the starting port for their east coast cruise this 2012. MSC Cruises, Pullmantur, Royal Caribbean, and MSC Orchestra will be sailing every Tuesday from June to October in Valencia for a week’s trip to Ibiza, Naples and Villefranche. The Adventure of the Seas from Royal Caribbean, on the other hand, will be sailing every Sunday from June until September to Civitavecchia, Corsica and Malaga.
In addition, several tours have day stay programs in Valencia. Famous routes among Germans are those that pass through western Mediterranean. More than half of the visitors or tourists, specifically fifty-six (56) percent, are foreigners. A quarter of which are Germans, which is due to Aida Vita passing the area alone at the end of June for four times.
The wide array of tour programs can help tourists experience the beauty of Valencia. To experience Valencia on land, some of the activities visitors should try are the Turia river bed bicycle tour, visiting the sight of the modern buildings in the City of Arts and Sciences for breathtaking futuristic shots, or taking the Albufera nature reserve tour. There are a lot of activities that can be done. Tourists will have fun alongside learning about the culture and traditions of the place.
Tourists who would like to explore Valencia in daytime would find it perfectly accessible and inexpensive with the Valencia cruise card which costs only ten Euros. With the card, exclusive discounts at museums, shops, restaurants, and other tourist facilities, direct transfers by the Turismo Valencia shuttle bus from the port to the city, and journeys through bus, metro and tram journeys can be availed to name a few perks. The card can be purchased by tourists at the port’s information center.
