The capital of the Basque Country has a wealth of historic and artistic heritage, ample pedestrian areas and gardens and a large variety of leisure and sports amenities.

How to arrive

Vitoria-Gasteiz is a place you have to go through when travelling on the north-south road running through Spain and thanks to the N1 road links Madrid with the rest of Europe. Vitoria is less that 4 hours from the Spanish capital and was chosen by Europolis as the best city for road safety.

2 "A-roads" and one motorway come into the city: the A-1 Madrid-Irun, the A-620 Vitoria- Altube and its connection with the AP-68 Bilbao-Zaragoza and the new AP-1 connecting Vitoria to Eibar.

Foronda airport is less than 10 minutes from the city centre and Bilbao airport just an hour. If you choose to come by train, we have an agreement with RENFE(Opens in new window) (the national railway) to offer conference delegates discounts of up to 35%.

Getting around the city

The best way of getting about in Vitoria-Gasteiz is on foot or by bike. Currently (the network is still in expansion) there are around a hundred kilometres of paths and bike lanes for cyclists.

You can also use the tram to get around Vitoria. It is quick, safe and, what is more, environmentally friendly. The tram was opened on 19th December 2008 and currently has 2 lines (with one shared section). Local buses run approximately every 10 minutes (with a night-bus service at weekends) and link all of Vitoria's suburbs to the city centre.

If you come by car, use the OTA parking meter system (the time you can park is limited and the first 15 minutes are free). The city also has eight underground car parks, four open air ones and one specifically for caravans.
