The most popular time for a holiday is during the hot summer months, when the streets buzz with visitors and activities of all sorts. With its warm climate, however, it's possible to visit Valencia at any time of year and be assured of some sunshine, and some people prefer to enjoy the city out of season when it is quieter, though never dull. March, during the famed Fallas Festival, is another good time to visit.
