There is also the option of taking the metro, which runs through the entire city of Granada and some surrounding towns. The advantages of using the metro are that in addition to being connected to the main points of the city (bus station, train station, university, shopping center) it allows us to travel quickly from one point of the city to another avoiding jammings.
In addition, it’s posible to take different bus lines using the same trip-ticket, allowing us to easily reach more isolated areas of the city. From 6:30 in the morning to 23:00 at night a train arrives every 10-15 minutes, taking a metro trip cost 1.35 euros (price can be cheaper if you buy a travel card: 0.82 euros).
The nearest stop from the Conference Centre is Alcázar de Genil’s station, which is located about 5 minutes from the venue. You can find more information about itineraries, timetables and travel trips on the page of Granada Metro(English).
Another option is to take a taxi. Taxis in Granada are white with a green stripe and are not expensive. A ride within the urban area would cost between 5-10 € (night fees slightly more expensive). A taxi from the airport to the city center costs around 28 €.
You can hail a taxi on the street or catch one from one of the many taxi ranks. A green light indicates availability. You can order a taxi calling at Teleradio taxi: +34 958 280 654 (Spanish). More info on TAXIS.
