Valencia Hot Tips

Just the ticket!

After your first metro journey in Valencia, keep the ticket! You can recharge it to use on more journeys, otherwise you have to pay €1 for a new cardboard card each time.

If you're staying in Valencia for a while then ask for a plastic ticket, they cost €3 and are much more durable.

Yummy cheap eats

To save a little money at breakfast, brunch and lunch, look for set menus which are usually advertised on boards outside bars and restaurants.

The hours can vary, but breakfast menus are usually available from 8am to 9.30am and brunch from 9am to 10.30am.

Take the weight off your shoulders

If you're making a whistle stop tour of Valencia don't let your luggage get in the way.

Instead, leave it in the lockers in the city's central train stations.
