How to get from Paris to Valencia

Unless you are willing to get on a plane, getting from Valencia to Paris will not be easy, although it is not impossible. The two cities are separated by around 1,400 km (870 miles) and there are no direct trains, but if you want to travel between them for whatever reason, you still have a few options. Here are our best tips for getting from France to Spain (or vice versa) with the least amount of hassle.

If you are worried about the weather, take the train

Even though there are no direct trains, traveling by train is still much faster and easier than by bus. Since you will be wasting a whole day traveling, I recommend taking the night service: you can save one night’s accommodation and sleep for much of the trip.

Note that the total travel time by train is still about half that of the bus, even taking transfers into account. You will normally have to move to Barcelona, ​​although there is a night service that requires an additional change in Toulouse. You can book European train tickets here .

Save some cash, take the bus

The bus from Paris to Valencia takes about 19 hours and costs about 119 euros. The service is managed by Linebus , although ALSA sells the same ticket for more money! Use Movelia to get the best price.

Rent a car and hit the road

It takes about 12 hours to travel the 1,400 km from Paris to Valencia. Take the A71, A75, A9 and E15. You may want to consider a stop in Toulouse or Barcelona.
