Buses between Segovia and Madrid (Moncloa bus station) run once or twice an hour, taking one hour, fare €10. Buses also run to Avila (one hour) and Salamanca (3 hr 30). The bus operator is La Sepulvedana. Segovia bus station is on Paseo de Ezequiel Gonzalez, 300 m south of the Aqueduct.

Segovia has two railway stations, both to the south of the city. High-speed AVE trains use the new station Segovia-Guiomar, 5 km away. These take 30 mins to Madrid Chamartin and 40 mins to Valladolid, fare €15 one-way. They run every hour or so, more often for commuters mornings into Madrid and evenings coming out. The AVE station has frequent buses to the centre (€2): Bus 11 to Plaza Artilleria beneath the Aqueduct, and Bus 12 to the main bus station, both every 20 mins.

Segovia’s old station is only 1 km from the centre, but nowadays has only two trains per day. These are regional trains taking two hours from Madrid Atocha, via Chamartin and Cercedilla, fare €9 one-way. Bus 8 runs past the railway station to town centre.

The nearest airport is Madrid Barajas, 100 km south – change at Chamartin between Metro and mainline trains.

The walled Old Town is easily accessible on foot. Most of it is pedestrianised, and no traffic passes beneath the Aqueduct, which thus divides the city. At the foot of the Aqueduct east side in Plaza Artilleria is an underground parking lot (€2 / hr). Bus 9 starts from here to make a circuit of Old Town, daily every 30 mins from 11:00 to 19:30, fare €1. West side in Plaza del Azoguejo is a Tourist Information Centre, with another in Plaza Mayor.
