The main point on the tourist map of Valencia in Russian is the Old Town, or Ciutat Vella. On the map of Valencia it is "delineated" by an ancient wall of the XV century, in addition, the border runs along the river Turia. It is an ideal area for tourists - there are a lot of cafes and restaurants, the largest concentration of hotels on the map of Valencia, and the main sights (the silk exchange, the Serranos and Torres de Quart towers, the city hall, the market) are all within walking distance.

Minuses - few shops, constant noise and crowds of commuters. Another attraction, the seaport, is located in the eastern neighborhood of Quatre Poblados Marítimos. Patacón beach is also located here.

Valencia is a fairly compact city with an elaborate network of public transportation, so almost any neighborhood is suitable.
