Valenica Metro

The Valencian narrow gauge railway, or metrovalencia, is unusual as it has a very large suburban network that crosses the city of Valencia, with all trains continuing out to far-flung suburbs. It also has destinations on lines that make it more closely resemble commuter train lines in being scheduled and not grade-separated. A tramway system north of the Túria riverbed park is considered Line 4 of the MetroValencia.

This network consists of more than 134 kilometres (83 mi) of track, of which around 19 kilometres (12 mi) is below ground.

Valencia – How to get to Valencia

 

How to get to Valencia



Booking.com

The fastest way to get to Valencia is by flying to Valencia Airport (Manises), although airfares to this airport are sometimes expensive. An alternative would be to fly to nearby Alicante (100 miles south) and take a train or bus to Valencia. Travelling all the way from France by rail to Valencia can be somewhat awkward and expensive, although rail
travel within Spain is surprisingly fast and efficient owing to the modern, high-speed trains and good tracks. Driving is the next best option, with major roads from all directions converging on Valencia, while bus travel is also worthwhile.
