Valencia is always a pleasant surprise.
One quick trip and just one spare morning. It's time enough to get lost in the streets of the historic district at sunrise.
And that's a magic experience.
You can still enjoy Valencia as it was in the old times, avoiding the eager crowds of tourists, the traffic, the heat.
Get up early and go for a stroll in the ancient streets of El Carmen. Light is magnificent and also the quietness.
Visit the Central Market while the stall holders are still busy filling up the counters with the fresh products and the early sunbeams start showing through the high windows.
If you are hungry, buy your breakfast at one of the many bakeries (hornos) and have it in a terrace as the city awakens.
