Imagine one small street less than a quarter mile long in a tiny Spanish town; it's packed with over 20,000 people preparing to spend a solid hour hurling tomatoes at each other. Sound crazy? It sounds like La Tomatina!
You can check into your hotel from 2pm where you'll find the Busabout Crew waiting for you. Mingle with your fellow fest-mates before your Guide leads you on a city orientation walk of Valencia. After taking in the sights and sounds of the city, it's time to go shopping for your La Tomatina outfit. Once you're kitted out you have the chance to head to the beach or hire bikes to get a full feel for this city, or how about a visit to the infamous cathedral where the Holy Grail is allegedly held.
Bring on the madness that is La Tomatina! An early shuttle from Valencia to Buñol where the fight takes place. Sit back and relax while your Guide explains the origins of this crazy festival. We'll arrive in Buñol in good time for the fiesta so you can immerse yourself in the party atmosphere and find the best vantage point! Watch the locals and tourists both struggle up the greasy pole, trying their best to reach the jamon serrano (ham) placed at the top of the pole, a much sought after prize. However it often lies out of reach of even the most dedicated scrambler!
After breakfast & checkout the day is yours to explore Valencia. If you are departing Valencia with Busabout, please meet your Guide at the Purple Nest Hostel tomorrow at 1.15pm to join the coach heading to Madrid. (B)
