Getting Around


VALENCIA: FROM THE AIRPORT

Flights arrive at Valencia Manises Airport. From there it's a short taxi ride (15 minutes) into the city centre. Metro line 5 also connects the airport, the city centre and the port in less than 30 minutes. Alternatively, the Aero-Bus runs at regular intervals, stopping at metro stations Angel Guimera and Bailén (near the Estación del Norte train station). Don't bother with a car in Valencia - it's far better to stroll about the squares and streets of the city.

If you're going to explore inland or further along the coast, then you might want to hire a car - see our car rental recommendations.

ALICANTE: FROM THE AIRPORT

Flights arrive at Alicante Airport. If you're heading into the Marina Alta mountains, you'll need to hire a car (see above).
