    Hi. Wondered if you can help. Have been googling easiest way to get from the Valencia beach to the royal gardens and it is telling me to take the number 6 light railway. Is this a tram? Can you use a T1 card to travel on it?

    • Hello Jeannette,

      Probably you are talking about touristic card, if it covers metro than you can take the light railway as well. Taking the metro from the beach to royal gardens it’s pretty simple, just jump off at Alameda metro station and then walk 100 meters.
