What you can expect

Join me at the Ruzafa neighborhood, a hip hotspot for the locals. Here is where you will kick off your amazing experience of the local way of living in Valencia. This neighborhood is home to countless cafes, restaurants, shops and, of course, wine bars. Plus you'll get a glimpse of two staples of Valencian architecture: the historic area next to the bullring and the beautiful Estació del Nord.

I want to take you to three of the best bars and wineries of this area just so you can taste the local atmosphere surrounded by amazing stories and local insights.

All the places we will visit have an interesting background and I will tell you all about it. One of the bars is locally known as an "ultramarino" and the story is also illustrated with pictures all over the walls of the bar. You'll absolutely love it!

Another one of the places you'll have a drink at is a local gem founded since 1932. Home to a local Valencian with a passion for wines, the core business of the shop remains wines, and they offer a great selection of minstrels and liquors as well. All you have to do is to pick your favorite one!

Step also into a winery where the charismatic owner will present his collection of Valencian wines to you. Who doesn't love a personalized visit?!

Throughout this experience, you'll try local Valencian wine. There is so much to know about the local wine culture so feel free to ask me any questions, I'll be more than happy to share with you my knowledge.

And at this bar & winery hopping experience, tapas will not be missed! The local wines will be paired with tasty treats, the perfect compliment!

34 years old born in Venezuela, half Italian. Moved to Belgium at the age of 20, lived there for 10 years and then moved to Spain and living there ever since.

My mother tongue is Spanish but I also count with a native command of French. Fluent as well in English and Italian, with a near native level for both.

I'm very fond of gastronomy, wine & beer, and lucky me when I realised Valencia has it all!

I'm a natural problem solver who happens to be very passionate about the IT world, cinema and home cinemas. It's for that reason that I have been working for the last 12 years in tech support from different countries and covering almost the entire planet.

Thanks to it I had the chance to travel quite often around the world, experience different cultures, get to know them better and develop a bond with them.

I strongly believe that in the end, no matter where it is, loving the place where you live is one of the main ingredients of life's happiness recipe."
