Afterward, head back to the main part of town to enjoy a Valencian lunch from a high terrace in the City of Arts and Sciences. Dine on fresh, local produce, and wash it down with a choice of soft drink, wine, or beer, while enjoying views of the city.

Although our ticket included admission to the City of the Arts and Sciences, we DID NOT go. We spent an inordinate time in the City Market and walking around old town. We then took a taxi to the City of Arts and Sciences, saw, but did not enter, the greenhouse and the museum.
