Spain has different modes of transport: plane, train, subway, bus, etc., which you can choose from according to your needs. You can also travel by taxi, or rent a car or scooter if you have a valid driver's license. Tourist transport is available in major cities, such as tourist trains and coaches.

Spain is a land of sunny beaches and friendly people. But it also has much to offer in terms of leisure.
