Is The Valencia Tourist Card Worth It? (Guide To Pros And Cons)

Valencia Tourist Card

Wondering whether to buy a Valencia Tourist Card for your city break? Find out what’s included and whether it’s worth it in this informative guide.

If you’ve been following my blog recently, you’ll have seen I fell head over heels in love with the city of Valencia in Spain. It’s a beautiful city, filled with history, great restaurants and quirky architecture. It’s perfect for a sunshine-filled getaway, particularly with its huge beach just a short bus ride from the city centre.

Before visiting, I ordered a Valencia Tourist Card . There are options of cards for 24, 48 or 72 hours, as well as another for 7 days.

The card includes free public transport within the city centre, complimentary entry or discounts at the key attractions, museums and restaurants, plus a few other freebies too – including tapas and drinks.

I’ll admit that part of my reason for wanting it was the ease of getting around. It covers journeys to and from Valencia Airport, as well as journeys within the city and down to the beach.

So time to give an honest account of what I thought of it, how it works, whether I’d recommend it and how to order one if you’re visiting the city soon.

Planning your trip to Valencia? Here are a few quick highlights:

What is the Valencia Tourist Card?

This special card includes all public transport within the city, as well as to the beach and airport. There’s a mammoth list of attractions it’s valid at, offering free entry or discounted tickets. You can buy cards for different durations, depending on how long you’ll be visiting for. There are cards for 24, 48 or 72 hours, as well as another for 7 days.

If you’re flying to Valencia I’d recommend ordering a card online in advance, then collecting at the airport. You just need your order number and email address to pick it up.

Alternatively, you can collect it from the tourist office within City Hall, or have it delivered to your hotel. Kids aged 6-12, over-65s and students can get a 15% discount off, but you’ll have to go to the tourist office to buy the card.

How much is a Valencia Tourist Card?

As mentioned, there are cards for 24, 48 or 72 hours, as well as another for 7 days. The prices are as follows:

24-hour Valencia Tourist Card: 15 EUR

48-hour Valencia Tourist Card: 20 EUR

72-hour Valencia Tourist Card: 25 EUR

7 day Valencia Tourist Card (without transport): 12 EUR

I usually buy things like this using Get Your Guide – a tour booking website I’ve used lots on my travels, and wholeheartedly trust. I took a few tours with them during my trip to Valencia, including a historical walking tour and a food tour , and they were fab. They occasionally offer discounts if you book via them too!

What attractions are included for free with the Valencia Tourist Card?

There are quite a few that are free with the card, including…

Lonja de la Seda – Valencia’s ancient silk exchange

Museo de Historia – Valencia’s history museum

Museo Fallero – Museum dedicated to Valencia’s famous Fallas Festival

Torres de Serranos and Torres de Quart – Old city gates (great views!)

Museo de Ciencias Naturales – Museum of natural sciences

Museo de la Ciudad – City museum

Museo del Arroz – Rice museum

L’Almoina – Archaeology museum

Without the card, most have an entry fee of around 2 EUR. It’s not much, but if you’re thinking of visiting quite a few during your visit, the tourist card will be more economic way to see the icity. You can see the full list of Valencia tourist card attractions here .

Exterior of Torres de Serranos, Valencia

Which attractions can I get discounts at with the Valencia Tourist Card?  

While there are plenty that are included complimentary, if the attraction isn’t on that list, it’s still likely to be offered at a discounted price with the card. I’ve picked out a few highlights but there are absolutely loads more!

15% off Museu de les Ciències (Valencia Science Museum)

15% off Oceanogràfic (Valencia Aquarium)

15% off Hemisfèric (Valencia IMAX Cinema)

15% off Bioparc (Valencia Zoo)

10% off Valencia Cathedral

10% off Jardín Botánico (Valencia Botanical Gardens)

It’s also worth checking out some of the discounts on rentals in the city too. For example, you can use the card to get 20% off renting a bike in the city, or 10% off jet-ski rental on Malvarrosa Beach.

Valencia, Spain

Can I use my Valencia Tourist Card on any tours?

Yes! I think this is a really great perk of the card. From a discount on the tourist bus (yay for hop on, hop off life!), to bike tours, a nosey around Valencia Football Club and even a paella cooking class, there are lots of little extras that are included with the card. You’ll need to check timings as many of them only run on certain days of the week, and then book your spot in advance.

Here are a few tours that caught my eye…

20% off 4-hour Valencia Family Tour

15% off bike tours

10% off Guided tour of Palau de les Arts Reina Sofía

10% off Mestalla Forever Tour (Valencia Football Club)

10% off paella workshops

2 EUR off València Bus Turístic (hop on, hop off)

10% off Albufera Experience (jeep and boat trip)

Seafood paella in Valencia

10% off sunset sailing trip from Malvarrosa Beach

Malvarrosa Beach, Valencia

What about food and drink?

Eating out on holiday can really add up, so it’s worth making use of the discounts on offer at the city’s restaurants and bars. Some of the discounts are 15-20% so it can make a big difference to your bill.

You can use the card at Café de las Horas, Terraza L’Umbracle, El Camarote & the Roof, Casa Isabel, Ocho y Medio, Restaurante Océanos, Ubik Café, La Cigrona and the Hard Rock Café amongst others.

Tapas spread

Did someone mention FREE food?

Not yet but I’m about to!! When you get your Valencia Tourist Card you’ll see a few ads for restaurants in the city where you get complimentary food and drink!

Head to El Corte Ingles for a complimentary tapa and a glass of wine, and then there’s one more voucher valid at a few restaurants around the city.

Anywhere else I can use the Valencia Tourist Card?

I didn’t have the chance to visit (partly because I was busy enjoying the sunshine outside) but the card is also valid at several spas in Valencia including Balneario La Alameda, Olympia Hotel and Spa Las Arenas.

How do I use the Valencia Tourist Card on public transport?

I used my card on several bus, tram and metro journeys. I’d describe Valencia as a walkable city, but if like me, you like to cram a lot in to your trips, you might want to save time by using public transport.

I navigated my way around using Google Maps. You can pop in your destination and select public transport. The app will then show you the best way to get there, including bus numbers and stop names.

Valencia tram

In terms of where you can get to using the card, it covers the Metro in Zones A – D (including to and from Valencia Airport) plus buses and trams in Zone A. As a tourist visiting, it’s very unlikely you’d need to go outside of these areas. When you pick up your card you can check the maps. It also includes bus Line 25 which goes to Albufera.

In terms of using the card, you tap it on the machine by the driver when you board a bus, at the tram stop platform and at the gates to the metro. It’s worth mentioning that if you get the Valencia 7-day tourist card, it doesn’t include public transport (or it didn’t when I visited).

Also, if you don’t opt for a tourist card, I think that the system in the city is similar to others, where you have to pay a cost for a Valencia transport card and top it up with journeys as you go along.

Pretty views in Valencia

So, the big question – is the Valencia Tourist Card worth it?

For me it was definitely worth it. If you’re planning a lot of sightseeing, and want the convenience of using public transport whenever you want, to get wherever you want, then it’s worth it.

I liked that I didn’t have to worry about figuring out metro tickets when I got to the airport, and could hop on public transport around the city whenever my legs got tired! 

I also used several of the free entry tickets and a few of the discounts. Free food was a bonus too! I didn’t get the chance to try out any of the tours as I’d already booked a few through Get Your Guide before my trip, but I’d bear it in mind for next time.

Enjoying the view from the top of Torres de Serranos, Valencia

However, if you’re visiting Valencia for a relaxing break, with plans to hang out in the historical city centre, hop from tapas bar to tapas bar and explore on foot, you’ll probably find it cheaper to buy single or return tickets on public transport and pay full price at any attractions. Single tickets on Valencia’s buses start at just 1.50 EUR. Metro lines 3 and 5 go from the airport to the city centre, with a single costing 3.90 EUR.

Sometimes it’s worth paying for the peace of mind, and a card like this definitely brings that! It really depends on how much you want to do during your trip!

How Does the Valencia Tourist Card Work?

You’re all set with your Valencia Tourist Card. But how does it work, you ask? It’s as easy as uno, dos, tres!

Who Shouldn’t Get the Valencia Tourist Card?

Now, I’ve sung the praises of the Valencia Tourist Card, but it’s also true that not every deal suits every traveler. So, who might not find the card as beneficial?

You may want to think twice about getting this if you fall into one of the following groups:

  • If you’re only planning a quick stop in Valencia , or if your idea of a perfect vacation is lounging at the beach all day (no judgment here, by the way), then you might not need the Valencia Tourist Card. 
  • If your itinerary doesn’t include a lot of museum-hopping , then the benefits of the card might not outweigh the cost.
  • If you don’t think you’ll be taking public transport that often , you might not find yourself getting the full benefits.

Honestly, if you plan to get the metro to and from the airport (which I always do) and think you’ll go to a couple of the main tourist attractions, like a museum or other historical site, then you’ll easily hit the point where the Valencia Tourist Card will be well worth it for you.

Throw in some of the restaurant discounts or getting some savings on a tour or bike rental in Valencia, and you’ll be laughing.

Of course, it’s up to you depending on how you think you’ll be traveling in the city but, overall, it’s going to be a great deal for many visitors.

How Do I Use the Valencia Tourist Card on Public Transport?

Using your Valencia Tourist Card on public transport is a cinch! For buses, simply show your card to the driver as you board. For trams and the metro, just swipe your card on the card readers located at the entrance. 

Remember, your card covers all zones within the city, including the trip from the airport to the city center. So, whether you’re heading to the beach, returning from a night out, or journeying from one attraction to the next, your Valencia Tourist Card has got you covered.

How Do I Use the Valencia Tourist Card at Attractions?

As if the Valencia Tourist Card couldn’t get any easier to use, here’s how it works at attractions: Simply present your card at the ticket office of the museum or monument you’re visiting. The friendly staff will then grant you free entry – it’s like having a VIP pass to the city’s cultural treasures!

And remember, there’s no limit to the number of attractions you can visit during the validity of your card. So go ahead, indulge your curiosity, immerse yourself in the rich history of Valencia, and let each new discovery be a story to tell.

How Do I Use the Valencia Tourist Card at Restaurants?

Ready to tantalize your taste buds with Valencia’s culinary delights? Using your Valencia Tourist Card at participating restaurants is as simple as pie… or should we say, paella?

When it’s time to pay, just show your card to the staff. They’ll apply the discount to your bill, and voila! You can enjoy your delicious meal knowing you’ve bagged yourself a bargain.

10 Reason you should get Valencia Tourist Card

1. countless journeys.

Valencia Tourist Card allows you to get 60 buses, 9 metros and tram lines. So you can go wherever your heart desires upon your arrival! You can go straight to your hotel from the airport or even better – directly to the beach!

Metro València

2. THE BEST VIEWS OF VALENCIA

Go up to the two remaining gates of the old wall that surrounded and protected the historic centre of the city.  Serranos and Quart Towers  are two of the best rooftops to see the heart of Valencia and the Turia Garden from a bird's eye view!

torres de serranos

3. ALL YEAR ROUND DISCOUNTS

The travellers always face the eternal question: what do I take with me as a souvenir? With globalisation, it is becoming more and more difficult to find an authentic souvenir that can only be found at the destination you are travelling to, but that doesn't happen in Valencia! With Valencia Tourist Card you can get discounts for souveniers! So why not get a hand-painted fan (did you know that most fans sold in Spain are made in Valencia?), buy famous porcelain figures from the Valencian company Lladró, official luggage of Valencia CF, perhaps clothes for children made here by Miralindo or the unique jewels of Vicente Gracia.

Calle Poeta Querol

4. THE UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE TOUR INCLUDED

Enter the  Lonja de la Seda , a jewel of European civil Gothic and an architectural example of the mercantile splendour of Valencia's silk industry. Take the audio guide and let yourself be carried away by the impressive helicoidal columns of the main hall, the orange grove courtyard or the surprising polychrome wooden ceiling of the Consulate of the Sea hall.

Take advantage of your visit to visit the  Fallas Museum  and learn about the evolution of our most international festival, the Fallas, declared intangible heritage of UNESCO in 2016. All the figures that have been pardoned from fire since 1934 are kept there.

Lonja de la Seda

5. SEE THE ONLY NATURAL PARK WHICH IS LOCATED SO CLOSE TO A CITY

Only 10 kilometres separate Albufera Natural Park from the centre of Valencia!  The best thing is that you can get there with the bus 25 which is included in the Valencia Tourist Card, or with the Bus Turístic, and get a 2 € discount. But of course, only if you are interested to get to know the unique ecosystem where paella was born, relax on beaches with dunes, take a boat trip or discover a surprising biodiversity that coexists with traditional fishing, the cultivation of 16,000 hectares of rice and 350 species of birds. What? Have we convinced you?

Atardecer albufera

With Valencia Tourist Card you can get 20% discount at 20 restaurants in the city!  Here's a selection: close to the beach and specialising in Blue Marina or Casa Isabel rice dishes; in the centre and if you're looking for La Cigrona or Navellos tapas and if you're more gourmet, Lienzo or Leixuri. But here you have them all .

La maritima

7. DISCOUNTS FOR CHILDREN!

The Valencia Tourist Card has a lot to offer for you and your family! Get 10% discount on tickets to various paradises for children such as museum of Sciences or Oceanographic, which is the largest aquarium in Europe, the Bioparc - a real safari through Africa and the Hemisphere - IMAX cinema and amazing 3D.

You can also get a 10% discount on a guided tour of the Mestalla  football stadium, bike hire or a special guided tour for families with children. In addition, our card allows you to enter the museum with the largest collection of little toy solders at a reduced rate.

familia en Bioparc

8. TREAT YOURSELF TO TAPAS

It's typical: tapas and beer or tapas and wine. Try one or both! Restaurants of  El Corte Inglés  (Pintor Maella, 37 and  Pintor Sorolla , 26) or in Charcutería Amparo or Salazonarte (Central Market). Look for your coupon in the Valencia Tourist Card printed guide and enjoy it!

de tapas en la playa

If you visited all of our recommended places, you've earned yourself some rest time. Take your Valencia Tourist Card and use it with a thermal circuit at the Olympia Hotel with a 15% discount or take advantage of the special prices on the treatments at the La Alameda Spa and the spas at the Las Arenas, El Parado del Saler and Primus hotels.

10. MORE FUN!

There's so much! Let's see what you think: get to know the Roman remains from 2,000 years ago at the L'Almoina underground museum, see one of the best museums of contemporary art in Europe, get to know and be able to buy craft products made in Valencia at the Centre d'Artesania, see crops that are 200 years old at the Botanical Gardens! Reserve your place (for half the price!)) on such unique guided tours as the Holy Grail or the Silk or get on the Wine Bus and spend the day in the vineyards of the Utiel-Requena Designation of Origin (with wineries very well positioned in the Peñín Guide).

valencia tourist card 24h

Free Transport Under 30 - 9th October - 31st December 2022

Free public transport (metro, trams, and buses) is available in Valencia for people under 30.

To benefit from this initiative, users have to request their free transport card online. The only prerequisite is a Spanish DNI or NIE as proof of age.

The tickets and subscriptions listed in the other sections of this article can be purchased in a variety of ways, as shown in the table below.

The support on which you can load your transport tickets (Móbilis card) comes in two formats. They are both reusable and can either be in cardboard (€1.00), or in hard plastic (€2.00 for a regular one, and €4.00 for a personalised one with a picture).

Bonobus passes require plastic Móbilis cards but single metro tickets and other tickets and passes can go either on a plastic or cardboard card.

Paper tickets

Only single bus tickets come in paper, and you buy them directly from the bus driver . Remember that many buses do not have card readers on board, so it is always good to have cash with you if you are planning to travel this way.

These tickets are single-use and can be discarded afterwards. They are the only kind of ticket that doesn’t need to be tapped on the readers (validated) .

Cardboard tickets and passes

Single metro tickets (cardboard) can only be bought from an automated machine or from an attendant at a metro station. All automated machines will have a selection of languages to choose from, including English. Before using a machine, make sure that you can use your preferred payment method, as some machines take only cards or only cash.

The first time you buy a cardboard metro ticket, also known as Móbilis Card, it will cost you €1.00. You can load up to four single tickets at a time on this card, so if you are travelling with someone else, you don’t have to buy two separate ones.

These tickets are also re-usable, so don’t throw yours away, and you will be able to load other journeys on them (like SUMA tickets).

Plastic cards

Most transport passes can be loaded on Móbilis plastic cards. Only Bonobus needs to be loaded on one. SUMA 10, SUMA T and T+ passes can all be loaded either on cardboard or plastic.
