    From Madrid to Merida: by plane?

    by hojasdehierba Updated Apr 4, 2011

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Actually, there is an airport in Talavera la Real, Badajoz, about 45 kms. far from Merida. It has some daily flights to Madrid, but I don't think it is very useful to visit Merida. In the end, if you add up how long it takes you to go from Madrid downtown to Barajas Airport, how long you have to arrive there in advance, how long the flight is and how long it takes you to arrive in Merida from the airport... you will notice that it is not a convenient way of transportation.
    But I wanted you to know that the option exists.

    En realidad, existe un aeropuerto en Talavera la Real, Badajoz, a unos 45 kms. de distancia de Merida. Tiene algunos vuelos diarios a Madrid, pero no creo que sea muy útil para visitar Merida. Al final, si sumas cuanto te lleva llegar desde el centro de Madrid a Barajas, cuanto tiempo tienes que llegar antes del vuelo, cuanto dura el vuelo y cuanto te lleva llegar desde el aeropuerto a Merida... te daras cuenta de que no es un medio de transporte conveniente para esto. Pero queria que supieseis que existe la opcion.

    Driving into merida from the south was all well sign posted and easy to drive into the centre and up to the main attractions where i had to aim for first to get before they closed - ran around and saw what i wanted to see - BUT when i came to leave and headed on back over the main bridge and entry roundabout to the city i couldnt find one sign out of merida!!
    driving around and around and terrible frustrated i did miles trying to find one when finally back up past the ampitheatre was a sign to madrid. my spanish friends in england said they know how bad it can be - but this was terrible! actually worse than signposting in Seville!!

    parking in merida

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    the main streets are one way systems or closed for pedestrians - take the road that runs right up through the middle from the alcabaza towards the ampitheatre and teatro and if you are lucky like me you might get one of the few parking spaces right outside the ampitheatre complex on the main road jose ramon melida.
    ! excellently lucky i was! had to pay the guardian and he made clear it was for the rest of the day ( i didnt get there till about 4pm so i had to run!) and was able to run from that site down
    past the temple of diana to the roman bridge and alcabaza and morerias site.

    Bus Terminal

    by hojasdehierba Written Feb 23, 2006

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    From Merida centre, if you pass across Puente Lusitania, you find the Bus Terminal, opposite to the Public Library (Biblioteca del Estado). If you arrive in Merida by bus, the most convenient way to reach your hotel is to take a taxi. At daytime, there are always taxis in front of the Bus Terminal. If you arrive at a very late time, you can call Radio Taxi (924 371111) and they will send a taxi for you.

    Desde el centro de Mérida, si cruzas el Puente Lusitania, encuentras la Estacion de Autobuses, enfrente a la Biblioteca del Estado. Si llegas en autobus a Merida, la mejor manera de llegar a tu hotel es coger un taxi. Durante el dia, siempre hay taxis justo enfrente de la Estacion de Autobuses. Si llegas muy tarde, puedes llamar a Radio Taxi y te mandaran un taxi.

    From Madrid to Merida: by train

    by hojasdehierba Written Nov 11, 2005

    Going by train is not a bad election to visit Merida from Madrid. It's a little more expensive than bus, but all of us know about train advantages, don't we? A return ticket would cost from 48€ to 60€, more or less. It is slower than bus, the journey will take, at least 4 1/2 hours. But if you choose the TALGO (the most expensive) you may be sure that your journey would be very comfortable, although don't expect AVE (fast speed) standards.

    El tren no es una mala eleccion para visitar Merida desde Madrid. Es un poco mas caro que el bus, pero todos conocemos las ventajas del tren ¿verdad?. Un billete de ida y vuelta cuesta entre 48 y 60 €. Es mas lento que el autobus, asi que el viaje llevara como minimo 4 horas y media. Pero si eliges el TALGO (el mas caro) puedes estar seguro que tu viaje sera muy comodo, aunque no esperes los niveles del AVE.

    From Madrid to Merida: by bus

    by hojasdehierba Updated Nov 11, 2005

    The more convenient way of going from Madrid to Merida, apart from driving a car, is bus. It's the cheapest way and the most frequent service. A return ticket cost from 35 € to 44 €, depending on if the bus is direct or not. There are about 8-9 services along the day, some of them being night buses.
    The journey takes 4 hours.
    The company which runs this route is Auto Res. You even might visit Merida and return to Madrid in the same day, but I don't recommend it: too long journey, very little time to see all the Roman wonders.

    La compañia que hace la ruta es Auto Res. Incluso podrias visitar Merida y volver a Madrid en el mismo dia, pero no lo recomiendo: un viaje demasiado largo y muy poco tiempo para ver todas las maravillas Romanas.
