An extended network

Difficult to realize how easy it is to travel throughout Spain when you get on one of AVE Services, the flagship of high-speed trains in Spain.
Connectivity is also one of the great advantages of AVE trains. Judge for yourself : from Valladolid, you could cross the country and get to Malaga or Sevilla as easy as it gets by boarding one of the AVE trains.

A nice itinerary will probably be to hop on a AVE service and make a first stop at Madrid where you could admire the incredibly green surface of this capital city : you could then start by walking along the Parque del Retiro, one of Madrid’s most popular park filled with lovely monuments and sculptures, then pay a visit to the Prado Museum.

And if you really enjoy parks and gardens, you could also explore The Royal Botanic Garden or The Campo del Moro gardens. Sounds mouthwatering, doesn’t it ?

After your stay in Madrid, why not board an AVE service and go deep south in Cordoba where you can enjoy the charm of this very old City in Andalusia? If you still have a few more spare days, why not complete your journey by spending some time in sunny Malaga or Sevilla ? AVE Services will bring you to these cities in very little time.

Need to start your journey in Barcelona? With AVE, everything becomes so incredibly easy. Possibilities are plenty. In just half an hour, you could be admiring the Roman ruins of Tarraco in Tarragona or even explore its magnificent cathedral dating back the 12th and 13th Centuries.

Then another AVE service could lead you again in less than 30 minutes to the city of Lleida, one of the oldest towns of Catalogna. Zaragoza could be your next stop : located just 45 minutes way from Lleida, by taking an AVE train, the city is worth visiting : Basilica del Pilar, La Seo Cathedral and the Aljaferia Palace are some of the major landmarks of this town.
Madrid could mark the end of your journey.

The convenience of one or more passes

Do you know that you can travel with Renfe with one of the Eurail passes and benefit from various discounts and bonuses? If you intend to travel through Spain and just focus on this country, you can choose a Spain pass.

But if you prefer to travel beyond Spain, regional passes like France-Spain, Italy-Spain or Portugal –Spain could better address your needs. Eurail Global Pass or Eurail Select Pass are also available. More useful information on those passes on this website.
