Make your way into Valencia through Arturo Michelena International Airport – the official name of Valencia Airport. It is in tribute to a very famous, Valencia born painter, Arturo Michelena. To be more precise, Valencia Airport is situated closer to Caracas, Venezuela’s capital and also, its largest city; this distance, if you’re travelling by a rented car, can be covered in as less as 2 hours.
Just hire a car at Valencia airport, or make sure you rent a car over the internet even before reaching the airport. That way, you can worry less about your transport to the city of Caracas, and travel fret free. Many car rental companies can be found at the airport, as well as other important stops in the city. Though you can opt out for taxis, it isn’t as comforting as a rental car is, and more than often, tourists do get robbed off with exceedingly high fares. For renting a car, all the details, from car type to payment, can be found over the internet.
