During my stay here in Madrid I had the opportunity to visit Valencia. We went to Valencia in el AVE, the high speed train that reaches almost 200 mph. The train was absolutely incredible, and, in my opinion, is the most comfortable was to travel throughout Spain.

While in Valencia, we visited a lot of different places such as the cathedral, medieval towers, parks, and my personal favorite, the Oceanographic. The oceanographic is a huge aquarium that houses the largest amount of aquatic species of any aquarium in Europe.

Valencia is my favorite city I have been to here in Spain (apart from Madrid of course). Valencia is very well-kept, elegant, and there is something there that anyone can enjoy and appreciate.
