You can easily get to and from Valencia airport by public transportation. Two metro lines connect the airport with the city center and the port: line 3 (Rafelbunyol-Airport) and line 5 (Airport-Marítim Serrería). Both lines depart from the national flights terminal, where you’ll also find a Valenciametro information point if you need. The metro runs every 15 minutes from 5 AM to 12 AM Monday to Friday, every 20 minutes from 6 AM to 12.30 AM on Saturdays and every 20 minutes from 7 AM to 12 AM on Sundays and public holidays (times are approximate). You’ll get to Xativa Station (city center) in about 25 minutes.

Alternatively, you can take the Aero-Bus, offering a direct service that connects Valencia airport and the city. It runs every 20 minutes from 6 AM to 10 PM every day. There’s another public bus, the bus number 150, that runs from the city center to the airport, stopping at the towns of Mislata, Quart de Poblet and Menises.

All of the above options are affordable, and the trip doesn’t take long. Both the metro and the Aero-bus are convenient means of transport to take to and from Valencia airport. You can even use your Valencia Tourist Card if you have one, as it offers free transportation including the trip to and from the airport.

Of course you can also reach the Valencia airport by car and taxi, the journey takes only a few minutes but it’s obviously the most expensive option.

The other airports that are closest to Valencia are Alicante and Castellón airports, still in the same Spanish region but much smaller and further away.

If you have any problem finding your way, don’t hesitate to ask a local. They are always happy to help visitors. Contact your host before your visit and get ready to discover the city and enjoy the highlights and hidden gems.

Fiona Mike

The Best of Old Valencia

We had a great couple of hours with Mike on our tour of Valencia. He was very enthusiastic and knowledgable about the lovely city, he showed us a few off the beaten track gems and gave some tips on other places to visit in our own time.

Capture the Moment! – Family Friendly Photo Tour


Ida was really amazing during the afternoon. We had a personalised tour where she showed us the main landmarks of the city and took picture of the group. This was for a bachelorette party and the future bride was delighted.

Many thanks again.

Day Trip: Albufera Lake Experience

Fernando did an amazing job! He is thoughtful, courteous, and professional. I requested additional information about the wildlife living around the lake and he added a visit to the nature park which was wonderful. We had spent three days enjoying Valencia but were ready for a quieter, natural setting and we found it at Lake Albufera. The boat ride was relaxing and the food delicious. I highly recommend Fernando's Spanish omelette! Fernando explained how the lake water is controlled by gates and used to flood the rice fields. We enjoyed seeing the rice fields even though they are dry this time of year.

We then had a tasty lunch at a local restaurant, my first taste of true paella. Fernando even helped us get the correct tickets at the train station. At the end of our week of sightseeing in Valencia, I asked our group of four what they enjoyed the most and they each said it was the day at Lake Albufera! Thank you, Fernando!
