In the morning: intimate encounters with history
It used to be one of Spain's richest and busiest seaside ports; today, it's a tourist magnet: we visit the city off-season to experience its natural charm and everyday life without huge groups of tourists and large numbers of coaches. To create the perfect holiday look, we opted for a layering-style outfit.
What is important is that the pieces of clothing have different lengths. How about a casual pair of jeans, a light blouse and a warm V-neck jumper, for example? The popular layered look is also suitable for men. The trendy jacket with functional features can easily be combined with a shirt and a waistcoat.
This means you won't just be always well-dressed but also perfectly prepared for cooler temperatures.
In the afternoon: Spanish flair and walks by the beach
Invigorated and rested, we begin the second part of our stay in Valencia. We have swapped our understated excursion looks for leisure time-style shirts and blouses. According to the motto "more is more", we follow this year's trend and rely on strong colours and large-scale patterns.
Tip: Large-scale patterns are always eye-catching. However, you should make sure that you don't combine too many different colours with each other, as your outfit could soon look too overpowering.
Besides brightly coloured blouses and shirts, colourful trousers are the main must-have for 2020. The casual sneakers also go back into the suitcase, and we opt for stylish boots and a smaller backpack.
Public transport takes us to the Jardín del Turia in no time. The extensive park invites you to go for a stroll. It is the seaside city's green oasis.
Then we continue on to Valencia's beach. Although it is still too cold to go for a swim, a long walk by the beach still gives you a real summer feeling. Before we return to the hotel, we visit the restaurant "La Pepita", one of Valencia's best and most popular paella restaurants. After a delicious portion of Spanish specialities, we travel back to our hotel and are looking forward to a sociable evening and Spain's nightlife.
In the evening: party animals and Mediterranean rhythms
We want to celebrate the end of our stay in Valencia in the picturesque historic city centre. Even though there are many different choices when it comes to the party scene and nightclubs in Valencia, we have decided to experience a typical Spanish evening in small bars and clubs. We have therefore swapped our daytime outfit for a smart suit and a casual dress. We rely on light in-between jackets to keep us warm when the temperature drops that we can also store away in a stylish handbag, if necessary. After relying on practical footwear all day long, we are looking forward to smart lace-ups and court shoes.
Exhausted but happy, we raise a glass of Spanish wine to our successful stay in this trendy city that is as diverse as hardly any other in Europe. Regardless of how you intend to explore the city, we definitely sell the right outfit or your stay in the urban jungle of Valencia!
