Getting to Valencia

Tourism

A well connected city

Valencia's transport links are getting better and better. The city has a high-speed train and flights to the most important European destinations, as well as one of the most important ports in the Mediterranean for container and cargo traffic. In addition, new international connections have recently been introduced to encourage passenger travel to the city.

The Conference Centre is less than 30 minutes away from all the city's main transport hubs, thus facilitating the organisation of conferences and events in the city.

Airport

Located 9 km from the Conference Centre and only 15 minutes away by car, Valencia airport offers daily scheduled flights to both national (mainland and islands) and international destinations (Germany, United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Turkey, Morocco, Portugal and Russia, to name but a few).

The airport is also located 8 kilometres from the city and has underground lines and city buses that link it to the city. See public transportation from the airport (http://www.aena.es/es/aeropuerto-valencia/transporte-publico.html)

Train stations

The city has two main railway stations. The so-called North Station, located in the centre of the city, which is just 4 kilometres from the Conference Centre, connects the capital with Gandia, Moixent, Utiel, Xirivella, Caudiel and Castellon de la Plana.

And the Joaquín Sorolla station, which is 15 minutes by car from the Conference Centre, and is home to the medium and high-speed trains that link the city with long-distance destinations such as Madrid, Seville, Albacete and Barcelona.

Port

The Port of Valencia is 13 kilometres from the Conference Centre and offers ferry links to and from the Balearic Islands and Italy, as well as being an increasingly popular destination for cruise ships that call at the port for passengers to discover the city. The port has two berths that can cater for vessels up to 300 metres long.

In addition, its other three quays for large ships have a taxi rank and an internal shuttle that transfers people travelling to the terminal.

 

Road:

Valencia is connected to the main cities of Spain through a road network that makes it accessible both from the peninsula and outside the country. These include the AP-7 and the A-3 motorways.

The first links Valencia with Barcelona and Alicante, connecting the entire Mediterranean coast. It also links up with the European motorway network.

The second runs through the peninsula towards the centre, to the city of Madrid.

In addition, Valencia is the first or last stop on most of the national and international journeys offered by the passenger transport services that operate out of the city's bus station.

Underground and city bus services

In addition, the city of Valencia has an extensive network of city buses, underground trains and trams that connect the entire city.

The bus routes linking the city with the Conference Centre are the number 62 and the 99 and the nearest underground station is Beniferri.
