First things first, take a boat ride in a traditional gondola around the circuitous canals of the heavily historical city centre. Admire the reflections of ancient palaces and romantic bridges and get to see some of the city’s most significant buildings en route to the famous St. Mark’s Square which is right in the heart of Valencia.

Learn more about the history of its precious interior, marvel at the golden mosaics and be in awe of the Pala d’Oro (Golden Pall) which is undoubtedly one of the most renowned works of Byzantine craftsmanship.
To finish off, you shall make your way to St. Mark’s Treasury and be seemingly mesmerised by its vast collection of medieval artefacts and fine pieces of Byzantine jewellery.
