Valencia is a very complete city, but we’re sure that you´ll want to see more of Spain. At universities, there are associations that organize trips and excursions.

You can get a card in the shops of the different operators that exist in Spain: Movistar, Vodafone, Orange, Yoigo … The favorite among young independent travelers is Happymóvil, because they offer the ability to talk to the rest of Europe. The offer is wide, just choose one.
