Travel Information

Travel Information

Valladolid has a small airport with a few incoming flights. Therefore, it is usually more convenient to fly to Madrid (Airport Adolfo Suárez Madrid-Barajas) and then travel by train to Valladolid (about 1 hour).


How to arrive from Madrid Airport to Madrid “Chamartin” Train Station

It is possible to arrive from “Adolfo Suárez Madrid-Barajas” airport to the city by train (“Cercanias Train”) or underground transportation. In particular, to continue travelling to Valladolid, it is most convenient to travel by train from the airport to “Chamartin” train station.

Train information (every train starting from the airport stops at “Chamartin” train station)

Underground information (route from Airport T1-T2-T3 to “Chamartin” train station, please check and update the date and time)


How to arrive from Madrid to Valladolid

Although it is possible to travel by bus from Madrid to Valladolid, or it is also possible to rent a car a drive for around 2.5 hours, it is most convenient to travel by train from Madrid’s “Chamartin” train station to Valladolid train station. There are trains almost every hour, and it takes about 1 hour to arrive. It is possible to check the timetable and book the trains online.


How to arrive at the Conference’s venue

Conference’s venue could be easily reached from the train station by walking (5 minutes, route here). If you are planning to rent a car there is a parking near the Conference’s venue.

The venue is located in the city center at a walking distance from the hotels selected for the conference.

How to arrive at the Tutorial’s venue

The meeting will take place at a building closed to Science Faculty called CTTA building. As this building is not very well known, it is easiest to reach first the SCIENCE FACULTY. Both buildings are placed at CAMPUS MIGUEL DELIBES and separated by 100 meters. Once you reach the science faculty we will place some indications to arrive to CTTA (please check the scheme below).

There are several ways to arrive here:

  • Taxi: The easiest way probably. It is not very expensive if you are coming from the city center, it could be around 7€. As the CTTA building is not very well known, maybe it is better to say to the driver to go to CAMPUS MIGUEL DELIBES, and to SCIENCE FACULTY.
  • Bus: There is a bus coming from city center to the Campus Miguel Delibes. The campus is the last stop of the bus and once you arrive you have to walk some minutes, (no more than 3 or 5) to reach Science Faculty. You can pick the bus near Plaza Mayor in the city center.

    Here is more information regarding the Valladolid buses (in Spanish Only).

    The option on the left (Parquesol-Huerta del Rey-Fuente Dorada-Belén) is the direction you have to pick to go from the city center to Campus Miguel Delibes). The easiest option is to take the bus at PLAZA FUENTE DORADA, very near to Plaza Mayor.

    The option on the right (Belén-Plaza Mayor-Huerta del Rey-Parquesol) is the direction you have to pick to go back from Campus Miguel Delibes to city center). The best option to stop in the city center is to stop near Plaza Mayor. The name of the bus stop is DUQUE DE LA VICTORIA.

    In this link if you press the red buttons a map showing where the bus stop is located appears.
  • Car: If you are planning to rent a car you can also reach here quite easy. The GPS coordinates of CTTA are:
    Lat: 41º39’46.31’’ N
    Long: 4º42’20.54’’ W.
  • Walking: It is possible to walk from the city center to the Campus Miguel Delibes. Estimated time is around 25-30 minutes.
