The Basics

Passengers docking at the Valencia Cruise Port typically head to the city center for guided small-group and private tours of its principal attractions. Don’t miss the City of Arts and Sciences—which includes an aquarium, science museum, and art museum—or the many museums and churches of the old town.

Alternatively, laze on the golden sands of Valencia’s beaches—the closest, Malvarrosa, is within walking or biking distance of the cruise port. Other shore excursion options include a tour of the famous Lladro porcelain factory or a boat ride through the scenic lagoon of Albufera Natural Park.
