Blasco Ibañez is well known especially by (Erasmus-) students. It’s the party-street of the students. Just behind the university buildings begins the “party-mile”. There you’ll find a lot of locations to go clubbing. Whether only to have a drink or to dance until the sun rises, here you’ll find something that you like for sure. Moreover, there are a few alternative clubs, that often perform international indie- and rock bands… As of 23 pm or even 3 am, this is the place to be for party animals!
Benimaclet is the district of students in Valencia. Situated in the north of the city there are living almost only students, because of the very near located university buildings, the low-cost flats and the beach Malvarossa nearby.
