Of course it takes a while until you get used to the tropical temperatures in the summer, especially if you are from rainy Germany.
Traffic and public transportation can be a bit confusing in the beginning, but once you get used to it, the exploring of the city can begin.
The first thing you absolutely must see is the historical city centre, the market and the cathedral with the tower “el Miguelete” from which you can overlook the whole city. And you should always have your camera ready, so that you can caprture all the beautiful places and moments.
If you need a refreshment you should definitely try the Horchata, which is a typical beverage in the valencian region. In the evenings, you should go and take a walk on the beach, to enjoy the beautiful sunset.
Valencia is a chaotic, but very nice city and cant be compared to other grey, central european cities.
But Valencia is not only about sightseeing, but also about social life.
I have never met so many different people, seen so many different faces and heared so many languages.
Unfortunately a learning residence is not only about having fun, but even that can be easily connected here.
Go to the beach in the breaks, learn spanish under the sun with a pleasant breeze of the mediterraenean sea in the hair.
Valencia, I’ll come back.
