The city's privileged location makes it an ideal tourist destination.
Its climate, with an average annual temperature of 17 centrigrades degrees (63 Fahrenheit degrees) and at least 300 sunny days per year.
The Port of Valencia has excellent connections to the International Airport, which is 30 minutes away by road as well as by public transport. Since 2010, the 350km between Valencia and the capital Madrid can now be covered in just one and a half hours with the AVE High Speed Train, which is without question a great incentive that makes it easier for passengers to reach our port.
