High Speed Train From Tarragona To Madrid

Postby Jokul » Sun Aug 23, 2015 7:44 am

Hi.  I will be traveling in Spain during June.  I would like to take the high speed train from Tarragona to Madrid on June 12, 2008.  I cannot figure out the timetables. I speak a small amount of Spanish.  Would it be better to book in advance and how do I do that or try to buy a ticket when I get to Tarragona?  I will be meeting 4 friends in Madrid on June 12th.  We need a hotel or apartment that will sleep 5 or six for 2 nights.  Do you have any suggestions?  We would like to be in the center of town or near Las Ramblas.  From Madrid we will rent a car and drive to Malaga for one week.  How long of a drive by car is that?  Any suggestions on sites to see?  Thank you

Robert

High Speed Train From Tarragona To Madrid

Hello Robert

The high speed train station in Tarragona is the new  Camp-Tarragona station and seems to be a bit far from the center of the city.http://www.renfe.es/

You can't book for more than 62 days. But you can look to the timetables by choosing an earlier date or seeking herehttp://horarios.renfe.es/hir/index.jsp?page=hjhir130.jsp&O=04104&D=MADRI&AF=2008...

All Ave trains are high speed. I know you get some doiscounts by buying in advance and through internet.

If your dates of the travel are fixed i recommend you to book in advance to get some discount.

I can't recommend any hotel in Madrid from my experience, try to seek here to find something suitable to your budget.

Hostals are normally cheaper than hotels but still good.http://www.hotelsearch.com/http://www.infohostal.com/http://www.spainhostels.com/

Specific for Madridhttp://madrid.hotelguide.net/http://www.madridman.com/

Forum with some reviews for hotelshttp://www.virtualtourist.com http://www.tripadvisor.com/

Any area near Sol is very centrical, but almost anyplace with metro station near is also good. "Las Ramblas" is in Barcelona and other catalan cities, there are no Ramblas streets in Madrid.

Madrid-Malaga are 534km taht will take you 5h30 according to ViaMichelinhttp://www.viamichelin.es/viamichelin/esp/dyn/controller/ItiWGPerformPage?ie=utf...

All highway and no tolls, despite the recommended route takes R4 with tolls, taking A4 directly instead is the same and with no tolls, but much more traffic.

On your way to Malaga you can do brief stops at Consuegra and/or Alcazar de S Juanhttp://www.aytoconsuegra.es/http://www.turismoalcazar.org/menu_principal.htm

In Andalucia

Ubeda and Baezahttp://www.ubedainteresa.com/portal/http://www.baeza.net/

and also Jaen deserves a brief stophttp://www.aytojaen.es/index.php/mod.pags/mem.detalle/idpag.200/idmenu.1139/chk....

You will pass through Granada, but this city is not for a brief stop but at least for a full day.

I hope this helps a bit
