Valencia is undoubtedly one of the most stylish, beautiful and awe-inspiring cities in Europe. With unequivocal beauty, incomparable nightlife and jaw-dropping senoritas concentrated throughout the bars and sprawled liberally across the magnificent beaches, this is a truly unmissable stag destination.
In a Nutshell:
- Valencia is the 3rd biggest city in Spain.
- It has a population of approximately 800,000.
- The locals speak Spanish, although many of them will have a good grasp of English- probably far better than your Spanish at any rate!
You can fly to Valencia from most major UK airports. A whole host of airlines fly to Valencia airport including Ryanair and Easyjet. The airport is 9km outside of Valencia. We highly recommend booking your flights as early as possible. The later you leave it, the more you'll end up paying. Flight time is around 2hr 20min.
There's no need to worry about getting to and from the airport and your activities, as we arrange it all for you. Whilst other stag groups wander around aimlessly with no idea of where they're going or how to get there, you'll be greeted at the airport by an event manager who'll accompany you throughout your trip. Valencia is a compact city and can be explored on foot with relative ease. If you want to give your feet a rest after a night clubbing, the city has a great bus network and it is the preferred way of getting around Valencia. The tickets are €1.20 and you can by travel cards for a number of trips that will work out cheaper the more you buy. The Metro Network in Valencia is excellent, but not too helpful for small scale travel. It doesn't go anywhere in the centre for example (due to the consistency of the soil), so it is most useful when you need to cover a long distance. In particular, it is the best way to get to the beach. Taxis are plentiful, but we recommend you agree a price with the driver before travelling.
We offer a range of accommodation options to suit all budgets. Whether you want to sleep in the lap of luxury or just want a place to rest your spinning head between drinking session, we know the place for you. We have a range of top hotels, guest houses and hostels on our books so tell us where you want to stay and we'll do the rest.
As well as the usual stag weekend favourites such as quad biking and paintballing, Valencia offers some truly great activities. Scuba diving, abseiling waterfalls, Spanish football tickets and much much more.
From Friday night till some obscene time on Sunday morning it's pure annihilation. So much so that the Valencians actually have a name for this part of the week - ‘La Movida' meaning ‘the movement'. If you struggle to stay awake for last orders at your local boozer, you better up your game as in Valencia it's customary to stay out until daybreak. The city's bars and nightclubs are always packed with partygoers who have an almost fanatical dedication to lashing so go hard or go home! The Valencian girls are absolutely stunning, certainly no Picasso faces on show here, you'll be drooling into your sangria as the sexy senoritas stroll past.
Valencia has a myriad of mouth watering restaurants. It may be a Spanish cliché, but you really can't visit Valencia without eating paella - and, to the region that invented the dish, if you haven't eaten it here, you haven't eaten it at all. The authentic version - Paella Valenciana - is with rabbit, chicken, snails, butter beans and broad beans, "paella" anywhere else in Spain is merely rice with meat and vegetables. They border on the fanatical when talking about the hardness of the water required to perfectly cook the rice - which must be grown locally, of course.. There are also a host of excellent tapas bars which will often give you complementary tapas with your drinks.
Valencia has a vibrant bar scene. Spain is the third largest wine producer in the world so if you like a drop of vino you'll be spoilt for choice. Sangria is staple drink of many a tourist, although it is comparatively expensive. If you're a beer monster you can't go wrong with San Miguel, a pint of which will set you back around €2.
Valencia has a very changeable Mediterranean climate, with warm dry summers, mild humid winters and stormy autumn and springs.
£1=€1.27 (03/08) We recommend you buy some Euros before you depart, but there are plenty of places to change money in town and ATM machines where you can get cash out, so don't forget your cards. In comparison to other cities in Spain, Valencia can be on the pricey side. However, compared to London and Paris, the cost of eating, staying and getting around the city is extremely reasonable.
