Spain has fantastic public transport options that make it easy and comfortable to get around the the Iberian peninsular and it’s islands. Spain is a big, rugged country and driving isn’t always the quickest or most convenient option.
That’s why in this episode of the When in Spain show I look at how to around Spain on public transport. I examine the benefits of using Spain’s national and regional train networks to get from city to city, including RENFE, Spain’s national train operator. I also weigh-up more affordable alternatives such as regional and national bus services.
If you’re in more of a hurry, I explain the vast array of internal flights available between all of the major cities with numerous national and international airlines such as Iberia, Vueling and Ryanair. Once you’ve arrived in one of Spain’s bigger cities, you’ll need get around. I review the metro systems in Madrid, Barcelona, Valencia, Seville and Málaga. Along the way I talk destinations, prices and how to make bookings.
