About the city

Valencia is a beautiful city on the east coast of Spain.

Although it lies by the Mediterranean Sea, it has lived turning its back on the sea waters. Recently, with the modernization of the city the situation has reverted and Valencia is now, more than ever, facing the warm Mediterranean.

Valencia has grown very fast in the last decade and nowadays combines the tradition with the modern times, the old with the new, in a very fashionable and attractive way.

Arriving to Valencia

  • By Plane: The airport of Valencia (VLC) is very well connected to the town center by metro (underground) or taxi. If you pick a taxi from the airport, the ride will not be very long (unless at rush hour) and not very expensive (about 20 euro).
    Although there are connections to several main european cities with low-cost companies, surely you will have to come with transfer at Madrid or Barcelona airports.
  • By Train: Valencia has a high velocity (AVE) connection with Madrid and reasonably confortable train connections to other main cities in Spain (check here). There are two train stations in Valencia: "Estación del Norte", located right in the very town center, receiving short and medium distance trains, and "Joaquin Sorolla" train station, receiving AVE and long distance trains, with very convenient options to commute to town center. Check here for extended information.
  • By Car: Main highways arriving to Valencia are A-7 or E-15 (along the east coast of Spain) and A-3 or E901 (toll free, connecting to Madrid).
  • By boat: The Port of Valencia, one of the Mediterranean’s most important commercial ports, has regular passenger services to and from the Balearic Islands and Italy, and a growing number of visiting cruise ships.
  • On Foot: Who dares? If someone does, main european foot route reaching Valencia is the GR 7. Basically follow the GR 7 "southwards" until you reach the Turia river. Then follow the water flow along the many short-distance paths (or swimming) which will lead you to Valencia.
