Valencia. Time to come out of Barcelona's shadow.

I was in Valencia last week and the city caught me completely by surprise! Not only does it have a charming old town dating back to the Roman and Ottoman periods, there's some stunning modern architecture, the City of Arts and Sciences is extraordinary and in particular Oceanographic, where I was a dolphin trainer for a morning!
It seems the economic downturn has meant many of the fashionable restaurants there are promoting very affordable menus, so visitors from the UK can reap some very tasty meals at rock bottom prices.
