Getting around Valencia

Valencia is well connected by the land, sea and air travel, making it easily accessible from across the globe. As a relatively small city with both public transit and bike sharing options, it is easy to get around within the city limits.

 

Connecting from the airport

Located 8 km outside of the city, Valencia Airport is connected to the city centre by both bus and metro lines. Metro lines 3 and 5 can get you to the city centre in approximately 25 minutes for €4.90 one-way. If you are arriving late, be sure to check the metro’s timetable to ensure that the line is still available. As the cheaper option, the bus (Aero-Bus) costs €2.50, leaves every 20 minutes (from 6:00-22:00) and will take about 30 minutes into the city.

 

Alternatively, a taxi from the airport will take around 20 minutes and will cost around €20. 

 

Transportation within the city

With public transit, bike sharing and plenty of taxis, it is considerably easy to get around Valencia.

 

The city’s metro provides various lines covering most of the city. Easy-to-read, downloadable metro maps and timetables can be found here. If you plan to frequently use the metro, a Bonometro ticket can help reduce the price by allowing you to buy a 10-ride pass at a reduced rate. Buses are also easily accessible throughout the city, and you can find the stops and timetable here.

 

Another option is to purchase a Valencia Tourist Card, which entitles you to either 24, 48 or 72 hours of unlimited access to public transportation, as well as discounts on some city museums and attractions.

Prices are as follows:

  • 24-hour card: €15
  • 48-hour card: €20
  • 72-hour card: €25

The card becomes activated after first use and can be purchased at a Valencia tourist office.

 

 

With more than 2,750 bikes distributed around 275 stations, bike sharing is another great way to get around Valencia. A short-term, 7-day ticket can be purchased for €10 at any station with a credit card terminal. With the short-term ticket:

  • First ½ hour: free
  • 30-60 minutes: 1€ every 30 extra minutes
  • Every 60 extra minutes: 3€

Transportation to the Valencia Conference Centre

The Valencia Conference Centre is connected by metro, taxi and bike. The metro lines 1 and 2 link the conference centre to the airport and 1, 2 and 4 all connect it the city centre. The conference centre is also linked to the city by the 62, 62, 99 and N3 bus routes and to a bike station.
