Day : 1 Valencia, Spain
Viva España! Our trip begins today in the glorious Spanish coastal city of Valencia. Meet the gang at our accommodation, then head out on the town for the chance to get to know your fellow revellers. Food fight in T minus 48 hours = befriend the enemy.
Day : 2 Valencia
Today is all yours to explore Valencia's Old Quarter, taking in such highlights as the Central Market, Plaza Redonda, the Cathedral of Valencia and the Basilica of Our Lady the Forsaken. Not keen for a wander? We won't judge if you'd rather retire to the beach and work on your tan. This evening is yours to sample the delicious local cuisine, so order up big at a tapas bar and wash it all down with a sangria (or two)
Day : 3 Valencia
We have an early start this morning - but today's excitement makes it more than worthwhile. We'll board our coaches for the included transfer to Buñol, the home of La Tomatina - the world's biggest food fight! The atmosphere building up to the 'fight' is like one big street party, with the occasional water fight added just for fun. Technically the festival doesn't kick off until someone has climbed up a greased pole to retrieve a ham (no, really) - however a cannon blast will also signal the start of the tomato onslaught at 11am. Huge trucks packed with tons of tomatoes roll through the street dropping their loads in the middle of the packed crowds. Then it's game on: everyone for themselves! The fight lasts for an hour - which may not sound like much but it's a long time if you're repeatedly getting pelted with tomatoes. Then, it's time to head back to Valencia for a shower and a well-earned rest. Tonight hopefully there are no lingering tomato-related animosities as we toast new friends and the memories of our Tomatina experience.
Day : 4 Valencia
Wake up feeling like a human-sized bottle of ketchup? That's all part of the fun. Rinse the remains of yesterday's epic food fight from behind your ears and dive into a hearty breakfast. The trip finishes this morning, but be sure to stick around with your newfound comrades and explore Valencia some more.
