How to get to Valencia

From the airport to the city CENTER
The Valencia airport is about 12 km from the conference venue. It has direct flights from many European countries. Although some of them are not direct flights, connections through Madrid, Barcelona or Mallorca airports are available and take less than one hour.
Once in the airport, you can reach the city centre from the airport by taxi, by bus or by metro.
A taxi takes about 20 minutes to the city centre and costs about 20-25€.
A bus service called Valencia-Airport line 150 departs every 26 minutes from Monday to Friday and every 35 minutes on Saturdays (single fare 1.45€).
Metro service line 3 (red) and line 5 (green) from the airport to city center stations depart every 10 minutes (single fare 4,50€). Approximate journey time: 30 minutes.
