In Travel Habitat we consider that visiting the City of Arts and Sciences is one of the best plans to do with children in Valencia (Spain). Apart from being a pleasant walk of almost 2 km long with buildings that are unique because of its architecture, in each of these buildings you will find an interesting place to visit with children.
In the 350,000 sqm of the City of Arts and Sciences you can discover art, science and nature by visiting Palacio de las Artes (opera building), L’Umbracle (multidisciplinary space specially destined to sports and events), Museo de las Ciencias Príncipe Felipe, L’Oceanogràfic and L’Hemisfèric. An excellent plan to do with children is to visit these last three buildings.
Both adults and children will love this plan!
