It is our first time flying to Valencia, we usually go to Malaga or Alicante airports and have been up as far as Denia.
This time we are planning on spending the first 4 nights in Valencia city itself as it looks like a lovely city and then we plan on hiring a car and driving somewhere within 45 mins to stay for the other 3 nights. We will probably go on AirBnb and find private apartments to stay in as we prefer that to hotels. So, firstly which parts of the city are good to stay in and safe to stay in with plenty of bars and restaurants? I've heard that the Colon area is the best but am open to more ideas.
Secondly, where is a nice town to stay in with 45 mins of Valencia airport? We prefer more non tourity places with lots of tapas bars and a lively nightlife (bars and restaurants). We have looked into Gandia and even though the beach looks lovely it loks as though there are alot of highrise buildings so not sure we would like that so any other ideas would really be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
