What could be more soothing than a summery interlude on the water, far from the crowded beaches of the Mediterranean? Departing from Zaragoza on Renfe train, you can enjoy a great experience that will make you forget all the stress accumulated over the last few months.
The Ebro has been a navigable waterway for ages. The construction of the city's 13 bridges is a testament to the history of the Aragonese capital, and undoubtedly the reason for its birth. The river once served as a source of supplies for the city from further afield, and although the port is still a source of economic exchange today, a tourist boat trip service gives you the chance to see the city from a different perspective. From fifteen minutes to an hour, departing from the Náutico, Voldorrey or Expo landing stages, these excursions are 100% recommended, whether you take them in the morning or at sunset.
