Whether you are visiting the city for winter sports, for the cultural activities it offers or simply to enjoy the natural beauty of the region, you definitely won’t be disappointed. This Andorra La Vella Travel Guide will give you a few useful tips that will help you plan your holiday to this charming city.
Andorra La Vella Travel Guide - Transport
Despite the fact that it is a capital, Andorra La Vella has no airports, domestic or international, in its immediate vicinity. The closest airports are located in Toulouse, Perpignan and Barcelona, a 3 hour drive away. Barcelona has an international airport which operates regular and frequent services to and from many other major international airports. Unfortunately, Andorra has no railway services either, most probably because its mountainous territory would make the construction of railways quite difficult. There is, however, a railway station in l’Hospitalet, in France, about 10 km away. Buses, on the other hand, run frequently between Andorra La Vella and cities in France and Spain. There are several bus companies that operate transport links to various cities. Decidedly, the best way to get to Andorra is by car. You can rent a car at one of the international airport and drive to Andorra yourself, and you’d have the chance to admire the country’s scenic mountains and valleys.
