From & to Valencia Airport: Valencia Airport (VLC), also known as Aeropuerto de Manises, is about 10 km from the city center. The quickest and easiest way into town is by taxi or ride service.

– Radio Taxi (+34 963-703-333)
– Direct Taxi Valencia (+34 960-077-705)
– Taxi Valencia (+34 661-719-393)
Public Transport: The metro (a mix of subway and overground light-rail lines) and buses make up Valencia’s comprehensive public transport network. Both transit modes share the same zone system, with Zone A covering all of the city’s central neighborhoods and attractions.
Bus: EMT Valencia(+34 963-158-515), also known as Bus Valencia, has routes covering the city and suburbs. Buses run roughly every 15 minutes from about 6:30 AM to 10:30 PM, Monday–Saturday, with reduced service on Sunday. Bus 19 is a popular route that can take you from the city hall at Ajuntament de València to the Ciudad de las Artes y las Ciencias complex and onward to the beach.
You can buy one-way tickets in cash from the driver as you board, paying €1.50 (children under 6 ride free). Exact change is preferred and drivers won’t accept anything larger than a €10 bill.
