Why Explore Valencia with Remote Year

We picked Valencia because it has all the best things about Spain. It’s easy to get around, and you’ll never be far from pretty green spaces in the city or near the beach. You should also try the paella – this traditional dish was born in Valencia! Enjoy this corner of Spain that’s undisturbed by tourists (for now).
