First in this tour, we will experience the modern masterpiece of City of Arts and the Sciences. We will stroll along the length of this futuristic complex designed by celebrated Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava. We will enjoy the Príncipe Felipe Science Museum and the Oceanogràfic, the largest aquarium in Europe Science, where there are about 45,000 specimens of 500 different species, such as dolphins, belugas, sea lions, seals, penguins or sharks.

Afterwards, we will visit Turia Gardens, one of the largest and accessible urban natural parks in Spain. It was built on the old bed of the Turía River, which was diverted to avoid the continuous flooding suffered by the city. This immense garden connects the African savannah, faithfully recreated in the Bioparc, with the underwater world and the ecosystems that can be visited in the Oceanogràfic, or with the spectacular opera auditorium, the Palau de les Arts, both in the City of the Arts and Sciences.
