Valencia Night Tour on Segway
When the daylight gives way to the night, Valencia’s atmosphere changes and becomes special. Temperatures might drop but in most seasons, it is still warm and cozy outside and people change from work to leisure mode. It is time to get together, enjoy a nice meal and chat (in Spain, the meal around 9 or 10 pm is the most important one of the day and is celebrated lavishly). The city lights illuminate many wonderful spots in a breath-taking way, so the nighttime is perfect to get outside, take the Segway and let yourself be amazed by Valencia’s beauty. Segway Anyway offers two different options to do so, which leaves you with the difficulty of choosing. Anyway, be welcome to do them both. Each of them takes only two hours of your time, and are really worth it!
The 1st option of Valencia night tour – Ciudad de las Artes and Seaport
The City of Arts and Sciences in Valencia is one of the 12 Treasures of Spain. 9000 proposals were launched on the Internet, but the City of Arts and Sciences was voted to be one of the 12 most interesting and beautiful places in Spain by its people. It is not only one building, but six, and they all have their elegancy. Walking past the L’Hemisfèric, which looks like a giant sliver futuristic eye, and strolling past the L’Oceanogràfic, one of the biggest aquarium of the world housing dolphins, belugas and Jellyfish, is a treat while the sun still shines. But illuminated in the dark, those buildings are an exceptional delight for those who take the time to look at it in detail.
After admiring the gems of the City of Arts and Sciences, we will take our Segways to the Sea Port. The port itself is the 5th busiest seaport in Europe, and although a lot of ships are loaded and unloaded at the port, you will experience that observing the hustle and bustle has a calming effect in the moonlight. Valencia’s generous promenade and the wide Malvarossa beach are situated next to the Sea Port. Numerous restaurants serve fish and Tapas and fill the air with the typical Mediterranean smell. The sound of the sea makes you wish you would never have to leave the place. You will see and feel it, at night, the beach and the harbor are unwrapping their certain kind of magic!
The 2nd option of Valencia night tour – Valencia City
Valencia’s old town is a magical place where history comes alive and people meet, linger and enjoy life. When it gets dark, the city center is a very lively and busy place, party folks populate the narrow, winding streets and the restaurants and bars are packed with chatting guests. The lights and illuminations add more magic to the ancient town we want to discover during this special night tour.
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. The lights reveal 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. Or you look at the stars and dream away and enjoy one of those mystic nights in Valencia.
