Please can anyone help? We are driving to Valencia on Monday for a couple of days. We are staying in the centre where there is limited parking. Can anyone recommend anywhere to park.... We wondered about parking at a train station or the airport?. Any help would be great.

Thanks Tia

You can park free at Xeraco, and catch the train from there into the Centre. I've parked there for a few days with no problem.  The train from Gandia to Valencia stops at Xeraco (first stop). Trains are very regular, and it takes about 50 minutes into Valencia. Its quite easy to find, either off  the N332 or the AP7. Just google Xeraco in Google maps.

Think its about €4 each way. You just buy the ticket at the station. If the car park is full. you can just park on the road outside.

Great tip - we have been thinking about another visit to Valencia but without taking the car there (no real need to have one when you're touring the city).  We had considered driving to San Isidro and getting a train from there via Alicante (?) but your tactic sounds great.  Many thanks.

Sincere thanks to BJ493. We have just returned from a lovely few days in Valencia. Our journey was so easy compared to the last time. We found the station no problem, found a parking space and enjoyed a stress free journey into Valencia. A short walk from the station to our hotel. We definitely will do it that way again!

Thanks again
Tia
