  • BUSES

    Granada Transportation

    I do like the way one can pay the driver on ordinary Spanish buses...it makes life so much easier than having to find a newsagent/whatever where one can buy tickets! So....you've arrived at Granada bus station and you don't want to take a taxi onwards (there are plenty of taxis waiting outside the bus station entrance)? OK, that's easy...

  • San Pablo Airport

    Sevilla Transportation

    To get to Seville in 2007, I took a Ryanair flight from London. To leave, I took a Vueling flight to Rome. I've been told there is a bus going between the airport and the city, but I never took it (it was easier for me to take taxis).

  • Cercanias - Local Trains

    Málaga Transportation

    While there is a mainline train station in Malaga connecting with the major Spanish cities, it is the local line that most people are interested in. This runs from Malaga to Fuengirola and has stops at all the main tourist areas. The carriages are clean and spacious and the next stop is always shown in lights above every door making them easy to...

    I took a train from Seville to get to Jerez for the horse fair (Feria del Caballo). There are trains running almost every day and several times a day between Seville and Jerez, and the ride takes about an hour.

    The complexity and narrowness of the streets of the Albayzin will drive you madly around in circles if you do not have a GPS.

They will take you to the central city and out of the maze....

    Sevilla Transportation

    A few VTers have said they have no problem taking a subway or metro but they find buses too difficult. While I can understand their concerns, Sevilla's bus system is well laid out and inexpensive. Sevilla's bus system is run by Tussam, a local company. Tussam operates about 40 daily bus routes and a tram line. Once we learned how they worked it...

  • Airport

    Málaga Transportation

    Malaga is a pleasant enough airport, albeit thronged (even in the first months of the year) with many UK package tourists and ex-pats. You can expect it to be very busy indeed during the peak holiday months. As with all European airports, I'd advise you to be there at least 2 hours before your flight and to go through security an hour beforehand at...

  • By Bus

    Cadiz Transportation

    As far as I could see there was only one bus from La Linea at 0700, unless you want to travel in the evening. There are a couple of others from Algeciras, so that would mean getting the local service from La Linea to Algeciras. I think it is timetabled at 40 minutes ish, but I would allow at least an hour. And then you have to queue in Algeciras...

    Getting from El Puerto de Santa Maria to Cadiz by car looked like a big hassle with traffic to reach the city via either the bridge over Bahia de Cadiz or up the congested motorway along the long peninsula on which the city is built - not to mention parking issues. As a result, we decided to just leave our car dock-side at El Puerto and take one of...

Otherwise, there are four windows which issue tickets for buses going to destinations - you need to know where you want to go to pick the...

They have their own special stop....it's not the...

  • Horse & Buggy Ride

    Sevilla Transportation

    Several cities in the world have carriages to a brief circuit. I think that Seville is one of the most suitable to justify its use. Most monuments are seen just passing by, and the small area covered by the main attractions eases the way. However, I love to walk, always the best way to travel - if with time.

    Although that it is true that many online booking facilities allow payments per debitcard, fact is that most car hire companies request to be paid by a valid credit card which must be issued on the name of the driver in most cases. One of the reasons, as commented before, is that they can make automatic additional charges if necessary and another...

Also, if you try to call a cab and get one to come to you, they might not...

    The nearest airport to the capital is in the town of Jerez, 50 kms away via highway. It is an international airport, though medium size. From the airport there is NO bus to Cadiz.

  • AVE Rail

    Sevilla Transportation

    Seville is now accessible by a modern line connecting to Madrid by AVE. Taking less than 3 hours, it is not cheap, costing more than 70€. Vueling flies for almost the same price and gives you extra time to look around, for instance, the old and beautiful train station, now transformed in a shopping mall.

  • Horse & Carriage

    Málaga Transportation

    It seems that I see carraige rides in many destinations. I suppose that if you are on a honeymoon, or with someone that you wish to be intimate with, it is a romantic means of transportation. On the upside, it is relatively slow allowing you to enjoy the views. On the downside, the cost may eat into your budget. Let us not mention horse manure.

I remember walking through Sevilla and seeing a lot of the merchants closing up for the mid afternoon siesta.

    The cheapest way from Malaga Airport to central Malaga is via the Number 19 bus which costs 1.20 and takes about 30 minutes for the journey.
