Mediterranean as a City – Valencia

Continuing with its series of webinars to help the travel trade discover Spain, the Tourism Office of Spain – Mumbai, along with Valencia Tourism, recently conducted a webinar titled ‘Know Valencia’.

A place full of contrasts awaits the visitor with a charming old town next to futuristic buildings. This is Valencia, one of Spain’s most welcoming cities. Beyond the cultural effervescence of its cities, a stroll is always a good idea, or bathing at its Mediterranean beaches. Of course, you must try the star dish, paella (true authenticity!) and other delicacies such as clams or tiger nut milk.

Valencia is located on Spain’s eastern coast, on the shores of the Mediterranean – a stretch of water which has gradually forged the city’s character over the centuries. Valencia’s location makes it an excellent operational base from which to explore the rest of Spain. At just an hour and a half from Madrid by train, three hours from Barcelona by car, and with daily departures to the Balearic Islands, the capital of the Mediterranean is well worth a visit. Bask in the city’s pleasant climate, stroll along its wide sandy beaches, just 15 minutes from the centre of Valencia, catch a glimpse of its past, sample the local cuisine and discover the richness of its culture.

Any time is a good time to visit Valencia, although if there is one day that is even more special than the rest, it’s 19th March, when they celebrate the famous Fallas by burning gigantic ‘cardboard sculptures’. Its Mediterranean light, mild climate and the bewitching fire make this a city you’ll want to stay in.

It is rightly said hard earned joys are the sweetest. I have been selling and promoting Spain for little over 20 years but a first time to enroll for the Spain Specialist Programme (SSP) to know in-depth about Spain, post which I have actually won a trip to Spain, how exciting! A programme worth enrolling to enhance your skills and improve your selling efficiency. SSP is a well curated programme, which is simple, engaging and exciting, giving you in-depth knowledge about Spain, its regions and topography. The SSP programme enforces the rich regional culture, the magnificent monuments, museums, churches, architectures, efficient transportation, traditional festivities, and many more exciting topics about Spain, making you fall in love with the country.

The webinar held on 6th September 2022 for Valencia region of Spain was informative and covered all that one needs to know before travelling. The question and answer session was very interactive and it gave the audience a chance to clarify their doubts. There is so much more to Valencia than I knew before this webinar. Moreover, the frequent reminders by the DDP team that organised the webinar were helpful and I did not miss it. The Spain Specialist Program (SSP) is excellent. It has everything that one needs to know about Spain – right from gastronomy, history, geographical locations, sports, events and festivals – of Spain. It is very comprehensive, user friendly and fun with all the quiz questions. It is one of the best tools for any travel agent selling Spain.
