Train and bus takes ages, but it's cheap (train used to be VERY cheap).
Plane is the only "real" option if you want to make it fast... Now, prices depend very much on where you're flying from, and there're a number of different options regarding airports, airlines, etc. If you book early you can get a decent price anyway.
Renting a car is not a crazy idea... it all comes down to how much you like driving... ;)

About the prices I can get you some help, as I take the route every few weeks with my low student budget ;-)...

The cheapest option by far is to go by bus. It takes about 8 hours from Madrid to A Coruna bus station, and costs between 40-50 Euro. Buses leave every two hours or so, the last one at around 11o'clock at night, being in A Coruna early in the morning

I wouldn't recommend train though... There are only a few connections every day, and it will take the same time as with the bus, only it costs you more than 40 Euro more...

The most comfortable option is to go by plane from Madrid. However, the airport of A Coruna has a problem - it has only one company which is IBERIA (well, the airport has 10 desks, and one of them is by Portugalia Air, but I never ever saw anyone there, so it is basically IBERIA) - So no competition - and high prices, the best offers you get for 90 Euros, but for that you must be really fast, and have good luck.... As well, I think you only get them that cheap if you buy them in Spain...

Prices from Madrid to A Coruna: average: 150 Euro

Better option: fly to Santiago or even Vigo. There you have more options - SpainAir, AirEuropa and IBERIA, and you pay around 40-50 Euros less in the higher categories, well, I would say average price to Santiago 110-120 Euro...

uff.. that's it for the moment, any questions??? ;-)

if you are outside of spain i reckon maybe the cheapest way is to fly to madrid and then get the bus to a coruna as mentioned before.

its worth the effort though, not just for coruna. galicia is a special place that is also still pretty untouched by the mass tourism of other parts of spain. best food too!

i have been to the riazor a couple of times. first time when i was about 10 and you could still see the tower clearly.

it made me laugh the comment about graffiti. there's sooo much in coruna, and while i like some graffiti i agree it does make thinks look a bit tatty sometimes.

last summer i went to the atletico friendly and after the game was in a bar near the stadium. irureta came in and the waiter introduced me to him. he was very friendly (even to the cd sellers) but asked me the question all non-english people ask of english people : 'do you support manchester united?'

If anybody wants to take the train from Madrid. Renfe run two trains a day from Madrid and the same back from A Coruna (Mon-Sat) and one on Sunday. The cost is about £50-60 for a return journey.
Madrid Charmartin 14.00 A Coruna 22.20
22.30 08.40

A Coruna 12.55 Madrid Charmartin 21.30
21.22 07.45
Madrid Charmartin 13.18 A Coruna 22.20

A Coruna 09.00 18.18

Check there website for details If you are from the Unted Kingdom Renfe have a office in London (0208 0800320) where you can book tickets 60 days in advance (possible discount availble on the above price).

Galicia is a wonderful part of Spain and A Coruna beats Brighton anyday. Go there even if its just for one day.

One day I will came to see Galicia and A Coruna, and of course to see one match in Riazor.
This is my dream

I've been twice.
Both times were with my friend who was there ones before and had contacts with a couple of Depor-boys.

This encounter did chance his live ;) ,cause he was totally crazy about the place and the people.So he asked me to come along, being football-crazy too and also a bit interested in Depor, I didn't had to think to long.And i have to say everything he said was thrue!

First time was against Celta :mad: ,this was not long after the Prestige so things weren't too good for the people of Galiza.After a demonstration at the stadium we saw the game and we won 3-0!
Big party :ass:

Second time was against Villareal after seeing Club Brugge playing 1-1 in Vigo the wednesday before(with our friends Deporfans in Balaidos haha).Depor lost 0-1 in the last minutes after playing with 10 the whole second half (I think).
We also went to the training-ground and got a picture with Valeron,on the matchday we ran into Donato in the clubshop so we got a picture with him too.Can somebody tell me how to post pics so I can share them with you,thanks.

Wully 09-04-2004 14:24

To get there:we always fly to Madrid with Virgin for about 150 Euro's and rent a car.That is the cheapest way for us.Next time will be with Ryanair who fly to Valladolid(closer than Madrid) for about 50-60 Euro's!!!! (they fly from Belgium and UK)

All times are GMT +1. The time now is 05:03.
