Transportation to Zaragoza.
The best way to arrive to Zaragoza is by high Speed Train (AVE) from Madrid Atocha station or from Barcelona Sants Station. There are more or less 1 train every hour, It takes around 75 or 90 min and it cost (round trip) around 90 €. Train tickets can be sold in advance at http://www.renfe.com/EN/viajeros/index.html
If you arrive to Adolfo Suárez Madrid-Barajas Airport. From Madrid Barajas Airport: go to Atocha RENFE train station either by taxi (~25 minutes, exactly €30) or by metro (45 minutes, around €4,5) or by train (Signed posted as “Cercanias” leaving from T4 and takes around 40 mins) and then take the high speed train AVE to Zaragoza (~1h25, round trip ~€90). A cheaper but not so comfortable alternative is taking a coach from company ALSA (www.alsa.es ) that runs between Barajas terminal T4 and Zaragoza every 2-3 hours (3h45 trip, single/return: €15/€26). If you are in terminals T1 T2 or T3, take the free airport bus shuttle to terminal T4. The bus to Zaragoza stops in the same place as the airport shuttle. There are no ticket counters, information posts, or timetables, but place yourself with your back towards the T4 terminal exit, look at your right and you will see the ticket vending machine of ALSA.
If you arrive to Barcelona El Prat Airport. The easiest way is to take the half-hourly RENFE C-10 suburban train from T2 (if you arrive at T1 there is an airport bus which takes you to T2 station) to Barcelona Sants (20 minutes, around €4.50), and then take the high speed train AVE to Zaragoza (1h45, round trip around €90). Taxi from Barcelona Airport to Barcelona Sants train station cost around 32 € and takes ~25 min.
NOTE: If you already have your AVE train ticket, you can get the suburban train ticket (“Cercanias”) for free in the automatic vending machines, by typing the code for “CombinadoCercanías” that appears on your AVE ticket.
