HOW TO REACH VALENCIA
Getting to Valencia is easy and convenient. There are direct flights from all major European cities, and from all over the world via Madrid or Barcelona. You will have no problem checking with your travel agent.
The airport is about 8 km from the city centre. You can reach the city centre by taxi, by tube or by bus.
A taxi from the airport will cost approximately 20 euros (including the extra fee for service from the airport).
There is a new underground service from the airport to the city centre: lines 3 (red) and 5 (green). Both lines follow the same route to the Xátiva and Colón stations which are close to the city centre and hotels. The underground runs from 5.29 to 23.59 during the week; on Saturdays from 6.08 to 23.48 and Sundays from 7.28 to 23.43. A single ticket (1 journey) costs 1.80 euros and a return ticket costs 3.10 euros (only valid for next-day returns).
A bus service, called AERO-BUS, is also available departing every 20 minutes from 6.00 to 22:00. The fare is approximately 2.50 euros. The nearest stop to the city centre is Bailén within a 15 minute walk to most of the hotels booked by the organisation.
There are comfortable trains from Madrid and Barcelona. The train station (Estacion del norte) is in the centre of the city. For information about timetables and prices visit the site of RENFE.
If you decide to bring (or rent) your own car, there are two major highways (motorways) leading to Valencia; one from Madrid, the A-3; and the A-7 from Barcelona and the border with France.
