Valencia is the home of paella, extraordinary architecture, beautiful coastlines and historic towns. Join us online to find out how best to enjoy its gastronomic highlights

Lovers of paella probably already know that Valencia is the spiritual home of the delicious rice dish — this sociable centrepiece is inextricably linked with the ancient port city. What better way to celebrate this year’s World Paella Day on 21 September than by joining us a few days before to find out about the history of paella, with an expert chef showing you how to make it at home. We’ll even send you a list of the ingredients needed so you can get ready to give it a go.

Of course, Valencia is more than just paella — there’s incredible food and wine to be found everywhere in the region. Our expert panel will discuss and debate the best dishes made from the finest produce from the surrounding market gardens, how to enjoy Valencian wine in Spain and at home, and how to recreate a taste of Valencia in your own kitchen.

Spain’s third-largest city, Valencia is known for its striking architecture and lively, welcoming atmosphere. While travel might be restricted at the moment, make time to plan an amazing trip with the help of our panellists, who’ll discuss their favourite places and secret spots — from the futuristic City of Arts and Sciences and the sights and smells of the dazzling, art nouveau Central Market of Valencia to the lush Turia Gardens and the colourful tiles of the fishermen’s quarter, Cabanyal-Canyamelar.

Looking beyond the city, Valencia, the region, is made up of three provinces: Castellon in the north, Valencia in the middle, and Alicante in the south. Our experts will be revealing their must-see spots across the region, from the most beautiful beaches to spectacular ravines via medieval villages and gothic palaces.

Join us online from 18.00 BST, Thursday 17 September. Travel Geeks lasts for an hour and offers the chance to hear from our experts and join in the lively debate.
