City Segway Tour
Valencia’s old town is a magical place where history comes alive and people meet, linger and enjoy life. The city center of Valencia is a very lively and busy place at day and night, where visitors and natives saunter the narrow, winding streets and the restaurants and bars are packed with chatting guests. Segway Anyway is happy to show you all the hidden gems and historical places situated in the old city.
We will meet at the impressive city gate Torres de Serranos, once a gate securing the city from invaders. Now it is renovated with much detail to its former outline and a perfect starting point for our tour of history and wonder.
From there we will enter the beautiful Turia Park, a former river now turned into a 9 kilometer long park with exotic plants and trees and many sports facilities. We will reach Colon Street and enter the Plaza de la Puerta del Mar. It offers an impressive arc, the old Portal del Real which was destroyed in 1865 and rebuild in marble. You will discover the cross in the main arch, which was added to remember those who lost their lives in the Spanish Civil War. On Segway, we will explore Colon Street, the main city arteria with loads of shops and restaurants until we reach the bull ring located next to the Northern Railway Station. This neoclassic building is impressive to look at, with its array of brick arches and wooden balustrades. Most of the time, the bull ring is not used anymore, but during the Fallas (the most popular fiesta in Valencia) bull fights take place.
Our route continues passing the Saint Mary’s Cathedral, a Catholic church of astonishing beauty consecrated in 1238 by the first bishop of Valencia. At the Parque de Hospital we will have some time to rest before we reach our destination, the second ancient gate of Valencia, Torres de Quart. If you feel like it, you can climb the stairs and have a look at the city from above. If you can’t be bothered climbing stairs, you can relax and have a refreshment or a coffee at the nice restaurant next to Torres de Quart.
