Find your way through Valencia's charming streets to the Mercado de Colón, located in the Exiample district. Have a look around the market, frequented by locals and contained in an unusual architectural structure, before stopping for a refreshing horchata — the most traditional summer drink of Valencia.

Move on to Mercado Central, where you'll make your way down the chaotic aisles between stalls selling an overwhelming variety of items. Pause for a jamón tasting, and learn about the mysterious difference between jamón ibérico and serrano. Next, your group will squeeze into a tiny artisan chocolate shop to taste some Cubanitos, bombones and handmade truffles. Follow that up with a stop for a local olive oil tasting, washed down with Spanish wine. 

Finish up at one of the oldest restaurants in Rufaza, housed in a 200-year-old building, for some traditional tapas and wine.
