Highlights of Valencia combined with shopping at the market and cooking paella.


The most famous dish from Spain is from Valencia, of course we are talking about Valencian Paella! Learn how to make your own paella and bring back home the taste of Spain.

I will pick you up from the port, we will visit the City of Arts and Sciences and continue with a panoramic drive of Valencia ending at the Central Market. I will show you my favourite places on the market and we will do some tastings.
We just need some ingredients to get started, a cup of fun, a dash of enthusiasm, the tips from the Chef and your appetite will make a great paella cooking class.
Not only will you learn about the paella, I will be telling you all about our local gastronomy.

After our Paella lunch we will take a small walk around the Silk exchange market and the Cathedral and I will bring you back to your hotel/cruise for your Siesta ;)

Itinerary

I will pick you up from the port/hotel and I will arrange for private transport (10 minutes) to the City of arts and sciences.

I will arrange for transportation to the city center (10 minutes), on our way we will see the Turia gardens and the Colon market. We will stop at the Central market.

We will be visiting my favorite place in the city, the fresh food market, I will treat you on some fresh Valencian orange juice and I will be showing you as well the ingredients of the paella.

Now the cooking can start, we will meet our masterchef in the kitchen and this workshop is hands on! We will also enjoy some starters and sip on Valencian wine. After the workshop you will get a real Paella diploma, now you can make it yourself the next time!

After lunch we will have a 1 hour stroll around in the historical center, visiting the outsides of the Silk exchange market, the Cathedral, the Basilica, Plaza de la virgen and Serrano towers.

Time for siesta? I will bring you back

A Recent Review of this tour

Suzie is terrific! She gave us a tour of the central food market, which is a veritable Disneyland of food. We couldn't stop buying olive oil, chocolates and other items to take home as gifts. Then we went to our cooking class, which was conducted by a master comic and chef. Then we did a walking tour of the older part of the city, followed by the City of Arts and Sciences. For so short a time in Valencia, Suzie was formidable and a delight.
