GETTING HERE - TRANSPORT
We recommend flying to Madrid Barajas International Airport. There are several terminals at which you can arrive T1, T2, T3 and more probably T4. Within the airport web page.
Clicking on To and From the airport will provide you with the different transport possibilities, including also private transport.
Using the public transport, the best way from the airport to Segovia is first by Metro or by train (Renfe, Cercanías) to reach Chamartín train station (Renfe). From there you must take the train to Segovia.
On arriving at terminal T4, go to the train transport (RENFE), line C-1, and take the train that goes directly to Chamartín (second stop). If you arrive at T1,T2 or T3 you need to go to T4 by Metro and then take the train. Alternatively, take any of the bus shuttles that take you between terminals. Once in Chamartín look for the AVE departure platform of the trains going to Segovia.
In the following link you can find the timetables for the AVE train to Segovia and you can also buy directly your ticket for the journey Madrid (Chamartín station) to Segovia (Segovia AVE station also called Segovia- Guiomar station).
Go to Timetables at the top right of the screen to select your journey Madrid- Segovia. The timetable should then appear and you should select the trains with duration of about 27 min (Alvia, Av City, Avant or AVE). In due time, we will provide you a promotional code (código promocional) by email that you can introduce when buying your ticket and you will get a reduction in the price.
Once in Segovia station, take a taxi to the Parador de Segovia. The cost of the taxi should be around 12 euros. There are also buses leaving from to station to the city center, the stop is in the Aqueduct.
