Valencia’s airport is 10km west of the city centre along the A3, towards Madrid. Flights, including many budget routes, serve major European destinations, including London, Paris and Berlin.
Trasmediterránea and Baleària operate car and passenger ferries to Ibiza and Mallorca. Less frequent ferries go to Menorca and Algeria. Approximate one-way prices in the high season (these can vary substantially as the two companies compete) include the following:
passenger €60-80, car €110-160
Ibiza (Sant Antoni)
up to 4 weekly
passenger €44-75, car €150-210
passenger €100-110, car €170-200
Valencia’s bus station is beside the riverbed. Bus 8 connects it to Plaza del Ayuntamiento.
Avanza (www.avanzabus.com) operates hourly bus services to/from Madrid (€30 to €36, four to 4½ hours).
ALSA (www.alsa.es) has up to 10 daily buses to/from Barcelona (€29 to €36, four to five hours) and more than 10 to Alicante (€21 to €25, 2½ to 5¾ hours), most via Benidorm.
All fast trains now use the Valencia Joaquín Sorolla station, 800m south of the old town. It's meant to be temporary, but looks like sticking around for a long time.
It's linked with nearby Estación del Norte, 500m away, by free shuttle bus. Estación del Norte has slow trains to Gandia, Alicante and Madrid, as well as local cercanía lines.
Though there are some departures from Estación del Norte, cercanía lines to the west leave from Valencia San Isidro/Sant Isidre in the west of the city.
