L'Eixample (Ensanche) is the number 2 district of Valencia, located in the southeast of the historic center, and is formed by the neighborhoods of Ruzafa, Gran Vía and El Pla del Remei. The Ensanche is characterized by its wide streets with buildings of bourgeois appearance, where you can see beautiful palaces and where the impression of Modernism can be seen. Ruzafa is one of the preferred walking areas of the Valencians, with numerous bars and nightlife venues and where they also highlight its market and Central Park. Plaza del Remedio is one of the most exclusive residential areas and a good place to go shopping.
Although the Eixample does not have any university, it is a district that is well connected to the main universities. For example, the journey to the University of Valencia takes about 20 minutes with bus 81 from Colón - Passeig de Russafa. The bus 41 minutes from Germanias - University to the Polytechnic University and the number 6 from Gregori Mayas street to leave at Puente de Fusta (11 minutes), about 5 minutes walk from the Menéndez Pelayo International University.
