Historic Deep Dive into Sagunt: Day Trip from Valencia, Sagunto, Spain (B)

If you have more than two days to spend in the Valencian region, I highly recommend a day trip to Sagunt/Sagunto, Spain. It's a quick thirty-minute train ride (round trip costs less than €6 as of summer 2023) from Valencia, and it is true time travel at its finest. Bring your heavy duty walking shoes!

Here, you wander through its historical streets and encounter remarkable landmarks that have witnessed the rise and fall of civilizations. Additionally, you can enjoy all of the following sights totally for free and at your own leisure.

With its commanding presence and stunning hillside location, this amphitheater once hosted grand spectacles and performances, leaving a glimpse of the past etched into its worn stone seats. It is also one of the few ancient Roman theaters that has been updated and is able to be used in the present day.
