Taste the sweetness of life in Valence
Sugared almonds, archaeology and enchanting canals: discover Valence with OUIBUS!
Enter the old part of Valence through the Porte Monumentale, the only remaining part of the old ramparts, to discover a gentle city where life is good.
From the Cathédrale Saint-Appolinaire, the oldest building in town, to the Maison des Têtes, explore Valence’s many beautiful and historical buildings. At the Museum of Art and Archaeology, the only one of its kind in the region, take a step back in time through 35 remarkable rooms.
From the old town, walk across the esplanade of the Champ de Mars, where the Valence Festival is held every year, to the Parc Jouvet, where you can catch your breath and rest for a bit. If you want to go for a walk along the water, simply follow Valence’s many canals.
Food-wise, Valence will certainly satisfy any sweet tooth! Try a “Suisse”, a small shortbread biscuit favoured with orange blossom, or some of Valence’s famous sugared almonds. The city is full of great restaurants, including one with 3 Michelin stars.
Once you’re done eating, head over to one of the many bars or clubs that will keep you partying into the wee hours of the morning. You can always catch up on your sleep on the OUIBUS on the way home from Valence!
