Travelling on a Euromed train
Air-conditioned Euromed services operated by Renfe are a way for both leisure and business travellers to explore Spain’s north-east Mediterranean coast. Euromed services are operated by Alvia-style trains with spacious open-plan carriages that have a restrained yet stylish decor.
Euromeds never travel beyond one key route serving the Levante region of Spain. That’s the east coast run from Barcelona to Valencia and Alicante. Trains run up to seven times a day over the core stretch from Barcelona to Valencia, taking slightly over three hours for the 350-km journey.
As with all Spanish long-distance train services, a seat reservation is obligatory. Tickets and reservations are often checked on the platform before boarding the train. Check-in closes two minutes before train departure. Luggage can be stored over your seat or in the racks at the end of each carriage. Euromed services always convey a café or buffet carriage.
Seating and sleeping on Euromed
Even in Standard Class (called Turista) you have plenty of legroom on Euromed services. Seating is arranged in airline-style unidirectional seats that come in pairs across the central aisle. Each seat (bar the ones at the end of each carriage) can be reversed, allowing travellers to face in the direction of travel.
Food and drink on Euromed
Café / Buffet
Every Euromed train carries a café or buffet car accessible to all passengers that offers hot and cold snacks and drinks during your journey. At lunch and dinner time hot meals can be ordered. Don’t expect fine dining; you’ll either take your snack back to your seat or enjoy it while standing at one of the bar tables in the buffet car.
