Making your way to Spain can be accomplished in several ways. Naturally, it would depend from where you are coming from – your origin because if you are traveling from halfway across the globe, then you limit your choices. If you are coming from another European country, then your choices increase.

By Air

Most international airports link with local airports to provide you with easy connecting flights to the city you are planning to go to. From the airport, it is also very convenient to hop on a bus or taxi to get to your final destination.

On the other hand, most major cities with international airports have direct flights from major countries around the world.

By Sea

Many large cruise ships include Spain as one of their destinations. Traveling by sea to Spain has a charm all its own. You can appreciate the beautiful coastlines of Spain and at the same time, enjoy a leisurely approach to the country.

By Train

If you plan to come in from another European country, there are very efficient international train networks from France, Portugal, Italy, and Switzerland. It’s another scenic route into Spain.

By Bus

This way of traveling into Spain can take a much longer time than any other way. If your holiday is limited to a certain number of days only, then this would not be advisable because you are not traveling fast enough, and maximizing yuor holiday time.
