Valencia in Lonely Planet's Top 10 once more
Valencia has caught Lonely Planet's attention again, and has been included in a list of the ten best beach cities, which includes Miami, Cape Town and Rio de Janeiro. At the end of 2010, this guide, one of the best-known in the world, recommended Valencia in its yearly ranking of the best cities to visit in 2011, published in “Best in Travel 2011”. This list was headed by New York City.
The European travel guide by Time Out, “1000 Great Holiday Ideas”, also published a list in which it recommended visiting Valencia in 2011. In a ranking of 10 cities that included Munich, Edinburgh, Lyon and Saint Petersburg, the guide highlighted the city's architectural treasures, its beaches and cuisine, and Las Fallas festival. It was the second UK guide to include Valencia amongst the most interesting cities to discover in 2011.
