The sands of time – what to see and what to do
Sightseeing in Valencia
If you study Spanish in Valencia, you’ll be learning at the intersection of past and future. The Old City reflects its long history: Discover Roman artefacts in the museum at the Plaza de la Almoina, let the Quart and Serrans Towers transport you back to the Middle Ages and be whisked away to the sumptuous days of the Spanish Baroque in the Palace of the Marqués de Dos Aguas. In contrast, the Mercat Centra is a stunning example of early modernist architecture. As you walk through one of the biggest markets in Europe, the scent of Spanish delicacies will whet your appetite for Valencia!
„Ciudad de las Artes y de las Ciencias“
After finishing our trip back in time, we’ll take you to the Ciudad de las Artes y de las Ciencias – the city of arts and sciences. This futuristic complex of buildings and a park is a modern symbol of the city and contains many noteworthy sights. At its heart is El Hemisférico. Shaped like a gigantic eye, this planetarium and cinema floats above a shallow pool of water. The view from the outside is truly surreal. Inside, you can have a fantastic glimpse of the universe.
Valencia and the sea
Nearby El Oceanográfico will plunge you into the oceans of our planet. The largest aquarium in Europe attracts visitors to see its colourful reef inhabitants, not to mention fish of the open ocean, sharks and dolphins. You can also expect to find astonishing beluga whales and adorable penguins. As the day comes to an end, spend a relaxing evening in the sculpture garden at L’Umbracle – in the summer, it’s also an open-air nightclub. Language study in Valencia is like taking a time machine from the traces of the Romans to the riches of the Baroque nobility and all the way up to modern and futuristic experiences.
Getting to Valencia
Your journey through time begins at Valencia (also known as Manises) Airport, eight kilometres west of the city. You can get into town from here in next to no time. It’s also possible to cap off a longer visit to Spain with a language stay in Valencia and arrive by train. Valencia has two central stations: Joaquín Sorolla and Norte. Architecturally, Estación del Norte combines modernity with tradition and regional charm with a cosmopolitan character. It’s the perfect starting point for your journey through the past, present and future.

A typical day at AIP Language Institute Valencia
Ethan, from England, is soon starting a new job for which he requires Spanish language skills. In order to achieve this, he decided to come to Valencia for a language study stay. He lives with two friends in shared accommodation close to the school. He finds this situation ideal... In the evening, they cook together, chat, have fun – and swot up on their ‘vocabulario’. Ethan is also studying marketing in addition to his Spanish course. Variety is the spice of life!
Ethan booked his language stay in Valencia for the summer. This time of year is a peak period for the school and the many students from all over the world create a lively multicultural feeling. The staff at the AIP Language Institute always have a sympathetic ear for students’ worries and concerns. This helps create a familiar atmosphere – even when things sometimes get a little hectic. Ethan likes that the language school proposes cultural, musical or sporting events every day – some of which are even accompanied by a member of staff. Such activities offer the students the opportunity of becoming more closely acquainted with Valencia and its inhabitants.
