The Travel Committee regrets that it has not been possible to assemble a package for an RSTAw Autumn trip to Valencia. The Committee looked at various dates and hotel options but there were difficulties with each of them. The tour operator agreed with the Committee to return in September with a definite itinerary that can be put to members for a trip to Valencia in May 2024.
