Valencia Urban Art route:
Valencia, despite its size, is one of the cities where the Street Art is booming. In fact, our artists (some friends) are doing work around the world and often have great prestige. This route attempts to show the city center from the artistic point of view, away from traditional paths. We admire the murals and graffiti of prominent artists like Blu, Deih, Julieta XLF, Escif (Valencia Banksy) … etc
Very few know that for a few years now, Valencia has been entering the international jazz circuit, with many concerts and future growth in its genre. With Spanish school El Tandem we will go to one of the jam sessions, spread throughout the city, to enjoy some good music together.
At Spanish school El Rincón del Tandem we do our best to be environmentally friendly. Therefore, we love to promote the use of bicycles as transportation. Valencia is a city that is becoming more and more sustainable. It’s very easy to get around on a bike or by walking. At our Spanish School, we propose a route through the river Turia, the largest urban garden in Spain, where we can enjoy excellent landscapes and architecture.
One of the fastest and most useful ways to increase your level of Spanish is to be in direct contact with native Spanish speakers, so our school looks to provide complete immersion during your stay with us. Together we will go to a language exchange where we can talk with local people and thus learn even more about the Spanish culture and customs as well as applying our Spanish lessons.
As photography lovers, we believe it is mandatory to take a nice souvenir of your experience with you, so during your stay we will suggest some photographic spots where we can go together to make the most of your camera. Remember that there is a specific course for this purpose, which will be an introduction to the techniques of SLR photography and photographic excursions to various points of interest. This will take you to the most beautiful spots of Valencia.
Visit to the Albufera Natural Reserve:
The park of the Albufera consists of a great flora and fauna worth admiring. The Tandem offers you the possibility to enter inside the park and to cross the viewpoints of birds that are there. In addition as an extra activity there is the possibility of taking a boat trip on the lake of Albufera.
Pedaling up to the Saler:
For the more sporty we suggest a bike route to the Saler, one of the most beautiful beaches in the city of Valencia. The route crosses some fishing villages glued to the sea, in addition the road is surrounded by dunes and Mediterranean vegetation (pines, Mediterranean scrubland …) so you will enjoy a direct contact with the nature of the region.
The city of Sagunto is considered as the origin of the Roman settlement in Valencia, being at that time more important than the current provincial capital. Sagunto offers a very rich fusion of cultures as Arabs, Jews and Christians have lived in the city. Together we will make an excursion to the castle, to the Roman theater and we will cross the labyrinthine streets of the Jewish quarter.
Navigating through Valencia:
If you visit Valencia it is mandatory to spend a day on the high seas, and the Tandem offers this possibility. We will organize routes of different duration depending on your requirements and your budget. Do you want to watch a sunset from the martomando a glass of champagne? It’s possible. Do you just want to go on a yacht? It’s possible. Do you want a boat party? Ask for it. Do you fancy an excursion with swim in the open sea? Why not? What would you say about having a paella in the middle of the sea with good music and a cocktail in your hand? You can also do it.
For many it is known that the Valencian Community has a great number of wines of excellent quality, that is why, from the Tandem, we want to approach them with a very special tasting, with products of the community accompanied by these delicious néctares.
