- The Aerobus shuttles follow the direct route between the airport and the city center. Route: Airport (departure area) - Avenida del Cid (opposite the police station) - Calle Bailen - Calle Angel Guimera - Avenida del Cid - Airport departures. The journey takes about 20 minutes.
Two metro lines connect the airport with the city center and the port. You need to go to the Xativa station if you want to get to the city center or to the North Station. A trip by subway costs a little more than a bus.

Regular passenger transportation to the Balearic Islands is performed from the port of Valencia. The port also receives a large number of cruise ships that bring tourists to Valencia from different countries.
