How to get Vigo (Spain).

Vigo is easily accessible thanks to a complete network of infrastructure linking the city to the main centres of population in Galician and the Iberian Peninsula, and even abroad. Its Atlantic port, airport, motorways, dual carriageways and railway provide a range of transportation to suit all tastes and possibilities.

By road: Vigo has three main access roads. The Northwest dual carriageway links the city to Madrid, 667 kilometres away. The Rías Baixas dual carriageway runs from Vigo to the North of Portugal, passing through Tui, Braga, Porto, thereafter linking with Lisbon and Portugal’s network of motorways. Finally, the Atlantic Motorway links the city with the north of Galicia, passing through Pontevedra, Santiago and A Coruña.

By bus: the bus station is located in Avenida de Madrid. The main connections link with Madrid, Barcelona, Bilbao-San Sebastian-Irún, Asturias-Cantabria, Porto-Lisbon and Vitoria-Pamplona. There are also international routes to Belgium, Germany, England and France.

By train: the train station is located in the city centre, in the Casablanca neighbourhood. Apart from linking with nearby cities (several daily connections with Ourense, Pontevedra, Santiago, A Coruña and Porto), there are daily express and "Talgo" trains to Madrid and Barcelona, and direct trains to León, Irún and Ponferrada.

By boat: each year the port of Vigo receives thousands of cruise passengers and the creation of a direct ferry service with France and United Kingdom is being studied. In relation to domestic crossings, from June 17th to September 17th, and more so at Easter, there are daily routes to the Cíes Islands and excursions around the ria. The tickets can be bought in the ria’s Maritime Station, opposite the Bahía Hotel.

By plane: Peinador Airport is 10 kilometres from the city centre. It has a wide range of scheduled flights to Madrid, Barcelona, Bilbao, Valladolid, Paris and Frankfurt, as well as charter flights.
