Valencia always welcomes you – FAM TRIP 2019
With our German partner DESTINATIONS + more, we welcomed several German agencies to Valencia and had a great time together in Spain’s third largest city.
Three days full of surprises while exploring the variety of this Spanish destination, we got in touch with: history, modernism and nature.
The to the leading hotels corresponding five star Hotel Balneario Las Arenas, located at the promenade of Malvarrosa with its fantastic sea view, not only impresses with its multifunctional conference rooms. Within walking distance you can easily reach unique event locations of the harbour. We walked through the old maritime neighbourhood Cabanyal with its marine essence – which is known for its delicious cuisine and charming old fishermen’s huts.
The early hours of the second day were dedicated to see different event locations in the suburbs of Valencia, including a historic monastery dating back to the 13th century, located between orange and olive plantations but also modern venues in the north of Valencia.
After tasting the local delis in the over 100 year’s old central market, we had an exclusive tour through a historic, newly renovated typical Valencian finca. Its roof terrace counts as an Insider tip for reunions and presentations with private character. On top, it left an unforgettable impression after having an aperitif with a spectacular view over the highest monuments of Valencia’s old town. While enjoying a glass of cava and salted almonds, our German architect guided us through the different centuries of the Valencia history – definitely recommend for any who is looking for a tour with special insights.
In the afternoon we enjoyed a bike ride through the city park Turia to head to the City of Arts and Science; a cultural and architectural complex and the most striking landmark in Valencia.
Before departure on our last day, we took the chance to discover the nature park Albufera, known for its rice fields and one of the best golf courses of the world. If you thinking in organizing CSR activities, this natural areal provides many options to show commitment and decrease negative impacts on its flora and fauna.
Thanks to all our local partners, Eberhard and its team from DESTINATIONS + more and our guests and new friends for making everything possible and embraced adventures and created memories together!
