Denia to Valencia...
Which is the best way to go by public transport from Denia to Valencia Airport, I am arriving in Denia around midnight and flying the next day very early in the morning.
Re: Denia to Valencia...
The only company that do a bus from Denia to the airport is Alsa and that bus is around 14.30 which is not any good for you. The only way by train is from Gandia, 33 kms north of Denia which starts at 6.03 in the morning, and then a bus or taxi to the airport. From Denia the only trains go the other way to Alicante.Not really many solutions apart from the taxi is there.....
Travel Tips for Denia
Fallas in Denia
You may think this festival is quite mad.
The locals spend thousands of euros building statues made of wood and plaster of Paris, erect them in the street, and on the last night, they are all burnt. The bomberos have to spray the buildings to stop them catching fire!!
The Fallas are usually satyrical representations of modern day politicians, celebrities, or happenings
However, Fallas indicates the start of Spring. It stems from the custom when carpenters used to spring clean their workshops, throw the rubbish into the street and burn it.
Be in town for the mascletas...fireworks set off for noise rather than oooh aaah spectacle. The figures are always burnt on the night of 19th March, St joseph's Day, and it really is an amazing spectacle.
Try and catch some of the parades too and see all those taking part dressed in traditional costume...You can find more info on my site...www.tuktuktours.co.uk
Valencia is really the place to be for Fallas, but crammed with people and it's difficult to get about there.
Very good location close to beach.
Very close to beach in Las Brisas area of Denia.
Good well cooked and presented food.
Excellent service. We had smoked salmon and also a prawn and avocado dish for our starters.
Rack of lamb for main course. This was cooked to perfection with a rosemary herb crust.
Inland from Denia
Hiring a car and driving inland is a great idea.We found going a few miles inland was like going to another planet.There are fields of almond trees and there is not a sound apart from the odd bird singing.You will come across small villages which dont even have a shop.Jativa"city of a thousand fountains" is well worth seeing.It has a huge fortress which was thought to be built by Hannibal around 219 B.C.The first ever paper in Europe was made here.Around the 11th century.It's wonderful walking around and seeing at the beautiful fountains.Well worth seeing i thought.Pego is another town about 5 miles from Denia worth a visit.The old town is very pretty.
