Valencia is often overshadowed by its somewhat more high-profile siblings; Barcelona and Madrid. However, Spain's third biggest city certainly has a lot to offer when it comes to choosing a holiday destination. I mean first and foremost, it's actually the birthplace of Paella! But seriously, with a beautiful sandy beach, sunny weather, a vibrant social scene, awe-inspiring futuristic buildings and a quintessential old town that exhibits everything we holidaymakers love about Spanish culture, what more could you really want from a weekend away? Here's why you need to consider Valencia holidays...
