Valencia for children, teens, parents, and grandparents!
Valencia is a wonderfully multi-generational city with several universities, a huge presence of grandparents in our mainstream and kids of all ages. You will happily see these many aged groups eating, dining in the parks and walking home together even at what you may think are very late hours. Spain’s social life IS their family life and there are great things for you to enjoy whilst you travel with your children or grandchildren.
Our Highlights for families most certainly includes the great City of Arts and Sciences, so cool and futuristic that Disney’s Tomorrowland movie with George Clooney was filmed here and is the capital of that Tomorrowland. Depending on your timing, we may just be able to see it and any age can take a boat ride out into the giant reflecting ponds, get a ‘bike board’ or try to walk on water with giant floating balls that NASA developed. Also depending on timing, you can choose a guide to bring you into the Science museum or the Oceanograifc, Europe’s largest aquarium with shark tunnel and dolphin show or even catch an IMAX movie of 1 hour in any language.
History is also fun for all ages and seeing such spots as the Roman baths and learning about how the Romans lived their daily lives, or the seeing a real chopping block where men lost their heads, or learning about how you can be a detective with architecture is fun for all ages! Upon request and depending on ages, we have several ‘scavenger hunts’ that are safe to do on their own while guardians take a break and sip a sangria or café.
We also have the great ‘Gulliver Park’, based on the classic of Gulliver’s Travels by Jonathan Swift and there is a giant in the middle of this park that can be climbed upon and sled down- not for the very little and even great for 12 and 13 year olds!
Part of the city and parks can be seen by bike, Segway or 4 person bike and is highly recommended if everyone in the group is your family group is able.
Valencia Highlights for Families is totally customizable for you and your youngest and oldest travel companions and each itinerary will cater to your different age groups, so please contact us for more details.
