Getting There
Seventeen trains leave Madrid every day. Five take more than 2 hours to reach Segovia (one-way 8.10€; from Chamartín station), but the high-speed trains (13€–24€ one way, from Atocha station) arrive in 26 to 29 minutes. The traditional rail station at Segovia is on Paseo Obispo Quesada s/n (tel. 90-232-03-20; www.renfe.com), a 20-minute walk southeast of the town center. The high-speed train arrives at Segovia-Guiomar; it’s served every 15 minutes by bus 11 (1€) to the aqueduct.

Buses arrive and depart from Estacionamiento Municipal de Autobuses, Paseo de Ezequiel González 10 (tel. 92-142-77-06). It’s about a 7-minute walk to the aqueduct. There are 20 to 35 buses a day to and from Madrid (which depart from Paseo de la Florida, 11; Metro: Norte), and about four a day traveling between Avila and Segovia. One-way tickets from Madrid cost 8€.

If you’re driving, take the N-VI (on some maps it’s known as the A-6) in the direction of A Coruña, northwest from Madrid, toward León and Lugo. At the junction with Rte. 110 (signposted segovia), turn northeast (AP-61 or N-603).
