N.B Due consideration for Valencia's public transport system is a must, as it finishes early ie; 23.30 - don't be caught out, staying Kms away from the most 'happening' nocturnal quarter of lively Carmen - otherwise it'll cost! Forget taxis or long walks - in particularly throughout the numerous fiestas or just the early weekend hours!
