With more than 300 days of sun per year in Valencia it can be pretty hot, especially in summer months. The most delicious refreshment is for sure ice cream. There are many ice cream spots in Valencia, but where do you get the best ice cream? We made a list with the best spots to get your ice cream in Valencia.
Ice Wave – The ice cream show
Maybe you have already heard about the concept of Ice Wave and as the name says it is an ice cream show. The original concept comes from Thailand, but one of the founders was so enthusiastic that he moved the idea to Spain.The idea is you can watch them make your ice cream on a frozen pan where they scratch the ice into thin slices. You can compile your own ice cream with several toppings and mixings, as chocolate, cookies or strawberries and of course the flavour you want. In short, it is a great experience and the ice cream is delicious! Do you want to experience the ice cream show in advance? Take a look at Ice Wave.
