Travelling is not just about exploring. There is more to it than meets the eye. Travelling helps to re-establish the harmony that once existed between Mother Nature and mankind.

When it comes to travel, nothing even comes close to what Venezuela has to offer. Being one of the most talked-about travel destinations, Venezuela prides itself on attracting an endless stream of visitors throughout the year that just cannot seem to get enough of the otherworldly beauty. Reeking of a sepulchral charm, Venezuela offers tourists something they will come across nowhere else in the world.

While Venezuela emerges as a true traveler’s paradise, one of its several cities that steal the show is Valencia. Founded on 25th March, 1555, Valencia is the capital city of the state Carabobo.
