City tours, excursions and tickets in Galicia and surroundings

Moving around in Spain - transportation

Buses are the best alternative to trains. According to the schedule, it becomes clear that buses run more often than trains and their tickets cost almost twice lower. Bus stations are located practically in every city. You can significantly economize if you make tickets reservation in advance. However, please note that tickets with large discounts are nonrefundable. Trips on the international bus carrier “Alsa” are very popular among tourists. Within a city, you can also easily move around by metro. It is worth considering that the cost of the metro tickets will depend on the number of transport zones crossed.

This is also an excellent option for those who want to travel by car, because all ferries also have impressive baggage compartments for transporting cars. … Open
