Here we are going to make a summary of the best plans to do with children in Valencia, although if you go with them, they are also interesting options.
The best things to see in Valencia with children
Animals in the Bioparc and the Oceanogràfic
In the Bioparc there are many animals that await you and you also have the advantage that you will be able to meet them up close and without barriers. In this way you can live the emotion of being in Africa, but being in Valencia.

Of course, the rest of the City of Arts and Sciences are also very interesting to visit with children.
Walk through the Albufera
Another place in the city that is well worth a visit and where the enormous biodiversity that this protected area has stands out. We recommend not to miss the tour of the central lake mounted on one of its typical boats.
La Albufera is a wonder of nature that you should not miss on your visit to Valencia, enjoying an enviable sunset and above all its gastronomy with numerous restaurants where you can enjoy an exquisite paella, the most international dish in Valencia.

The Botanical Garden and the Beaches of Valencia
The Botanical Garden is a magical place where you can take a walk, especially in summer when the heat tends to be quite intense.
This garden has many centuries of history and many times from the organization they have workshops and visits designed for children, so we recommend visiting their website in advance.
Spending a day at the beach on the urban beaches of La Malvarrosa or Las Arenas is also very attractive. You can take a dip, snorkel or build sand castles just 15 minutes from the city center.
Guided tour of the downtown area
Valencia has an old town that may be small in size, but has a lot of history. You will be able to walk through its streets with the children and be able to see such charming places as the Central Market, the Lonja, Torres de Serrano or the Cathedral.
