Best Times to Visit Valencia
The best time Valencia is in April and May, the sweet spot full of warm weather and void of crazy crowds. In general, the city boasts a Mediterranean climate with consistently pleasant weather. Average high temps range from 59 degrees in the wintertime to 85 degrees in the height of summer. Wintertime is also pretty comfortable -- between the mid 40s to mid 60s -- and the city is more or less tourist-free. The downside is certain attractions shorten their hours of operation.
Tourists flee in the winter months, but if you plan to do some sightseeing, keep in mind that many museums operate under shorter hours and some of the more rural restaurants close during the week. We recommend calling your must- see attractions for their hours of operation in advance. If you're visiting for the popular Las Fallas celebrations in mid March, book your hotel at least six months in advance.
If you want to avoid the crowds, visit during the shoulder months of April and May. The temperatures hover pleasantly in the low 70s, the water is warm and the crowds still haven't made their way to the city.
This is the best time to catch some rays -- even in October, the temperatures stay in the mid 70s -- but you may find that the beaches are too crowded for your liking. Pack lots of sunscreen, especially in June and August, since summer days on the Spanish coast usher in plenty of sunshine and often a high level of humidity. Since its peak season, hotels are also more expensive and harder to book. Make your reservations at least four months in advance.
