Interpret Europe Training days | 7-11 October 2022 | #ietrainingdays22
If you want to attend the programme from the beginning on Friday 7 October, we are starting at 16.00 with an orentational guided walk around the town and an Opening ceremony with dinner at 19.00, so plan your arrival accordingly.
Two of the study visits will finish near Barcelona airport at 16.00 so you might want to plan your departure accordingly, taking advantage of this convenience.
How to get there
The nearest airport is Reus. The bus from Reus Airport (REU) to Tortosa takes about 2h 5m. It’s operated by Hispano Igualadina and Hife.
The airports of Barcelona and Valencia are both about 200km away but the connections with public transport are better from Barcelona, since there are direct buses (operated by Hife, about two hours) and trains from Barcelona Sants station (operated by Renfe, under 2.5 hours).
To go from Barcelona airport to Tortosa by bus, you can buy tickets here. Select AEROPUERTO DE BARCELONA EL PRAT T1 as departure point and TORTOSA as destination.
If you want to see other bus companies' services, we recommend to take a look at the airport's website.
The city is connected by the AP-7 motorway and N-340 carriageway to Barcelona, Tortosa and Valencia.
Tortosa has a train station located near the city centre that offers links to regional trains (to Barcelona, Reus and Tarragona). A few kilometres from the city, there is the Aldea-Amposta train station for high-speed and long-distance trains. You can consult timetables, routes and buy your tickets on the Renfe website.
