Valencia transport can take some getting to grips with, especially if you have to get from the city centre to the beach area in a hurry! Here are our tips:
The main areas of interest are centred around The Old Town and the Plaza del Ayuntamiento (Metro: Xativa, on lines 3 and 5). In this area you’ll find all of the city centres attractions and nightlife. As most hotels and accommodation are within walking distance of this area, you should have no problems finding your way home on foot!
A quick and easy option, though traffic is congested at rush hours (from 8 to 9 a.m. and from 15 to 18 p.m.) A short ride will cost a minimum of EUR 3-6.
The main bus service within Valencia, EMT (Valencia Local Transport Company) is frequent and cheap. Number 91 by day and Number 7 by night take you to some of the best hidden spots in the city, and this is a good way to get to teh beach at Malvarrosa and Las Arenas. Stops display a city map with bus routes. Web information at:www.emtvalencia.es/portal/Main
Underground (“Metro de Valencia”)
Brand new, safe, cheap and fast. Single tickets cost EUR 1.10, but better to buy a “bonometro”- a ten-ride ticket you can share – each ride take you anywhere in the city! This will save you about 50%. Web info at: www.metrovalencia.es
Another modern and fun option, especially for getting to the beach at Malvarrosa. The tram in Valencia goes from the Pont de Fusta (Wooden Bridge), near the Serrano Towers, around the main streets of the city. The end of the line is the beaches of Las Arenas and La Malvarrosa
