During the first days in Valencia, we organize a City Tour for all the participants that decide to join our ESMOVIA experience!
The best way to start your mobility
We consider this activity a must in the mobility programme, as it helps participants discover the city center, its squares, modern buildings, and narrow central streets. In this way students feel more self-confident and there are less probabilities to get lost while walking in the center or while reaching ESMOVIA.
During the City Tour, participants realize how close our office is situated to the most touristicplaces: Plaza de Toros, main train station, city hall square, central market.
The walking city tour lasts around one hour and is led by our official guides in English, Spanish or Italian, depending on the characteristics of each group. The guide offers historical insights and fun facts that participants can also easily remember during the following weeks.
The participants can also ask for some tips on what to visit and eat during their free time, how to reach the touristic areas and where and when there are free entrances and events that are taking places during their stay period.
More information on what to visit can be found in the ESMOVIA handbook and in our website.
Let’s start walking!
ESMOVIA and partners started the month of February off strong with our LTTA event (Learning, Training, and Teaching) hosted here in Valencia, the week of February 7th to the 10th. This event was part of our European Project EMoCC – European Mobility Career Counseling project which focuses on giving career counselors support in their jobs and new resources to use with their clients.
This project aims to both understand and stimulate, job mobility experiences within the European Union, with the overall outcome being the construction of two different MOOCs (massive open online courses) addressed to career counselors:
- MOOC 1 on Career Counseling
- MOOC 2 on European job mobility
During this dynamic event, each partner, based on their expertise, gave mini speeches on different topics related to the brainstorming and design of MOOC 2. Topics discussed were basic mobility knowledge and competences, awareness of diversity, cross-cultural capacities, social inclusion and legal aspects, within both the migrant and non-migrant populations.
Through discussion and direct practice of some of these techniques, we are one step further in our project, and happy to share it directly with you.

We want our participants to be ready for the adventure that is waiting for them here in Valencia! But as for all adventures to go well and finish in the most positive way, a previous detailed preparation is needed!
During the years, ESMOVIA has created and introduced different tools to support our team in the organization of the mobility and to make things easier for our partners and participants.
In ESMOVIA we are supported by a range of mobility tools that will make your journey run smoothly:
Our MAnagement SYstem for MObility collects all the information related to the project and its participants and produces all of the necessary documents.
Our previous online preparation regarding work, the culture, traditions and the language, is a must in all the well organized journeys.
