Spain's third largest city of Valencia sits on the east coast. It is the capital of the region of the same name, and one of the country's oldest, after being founded in 138BC by colonial Roman settlers. Hire a car from Valencia Airport and tour the city's old town, home to its historic landmarks. Navigate the cobbled streets to find Valencia Cathedral with its prominent tower, topped with a beautiful belfry. Drop by the rustic Mercado Central market for a glimpse of Valencia's hustle and bustle, or stop off at the Plaza del Ayuntamiento, the city's central square.
