Now, before I get too far into outlining my process, let me be the first to say that I am in no way claiming to be an expert. Unless of course you call someone who has booked a hotel up a mountain in Switzerland with little access in or out in good weather, let along a snow storm, an expert.
One of the larger cities in Spain, and definitely one of the liveliest, Valencia is known for its amazing beaches. Situated on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea, and with average highs in the upper 60’s in the winter and above 90 degrees in the summer, Valencia is a very popular European vacation destination.
I guess in that regard it is difficult for me to say that the city exceeded my expectations as I didn’t really know what to expect, but I will say that Barcelona did not disappoint.
