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.

Stephanie Maxime

Valencia's Water Path and Stories with a Local

We had a great time with Maxime as he showed us the history of Valencia, with a focus on the way that water has played a role in shaping the city itself. It seemed like a more niche tour, but it turned out to be amazing! His knowledge of the city and it's history was extensive, and he showed us things that even some locals might miss. The tour ran a little bit over (probably because it was his first time giving this tour), so we were a little rushed near the end, but he still showed us everything on the list because we were so interested in it. And we are extremely happy he did! Maxime's passion for the city was evident the entire time, and I definitely recommend him if you're looking for local guides!

Valencia the local way: Wine, Tapas & Stories

We had a very nice tour with Fernando, because a wine bar that day was closed, we had 2 stops instead of 3 stops, but Fernando has compensated this Well. We had a very nice evening. The tour was a gift for my friend's birthday and Fernando even had an extra surprise! highly recommended :)
