Having your rental prepared, you just have to start the journey to your destination, which begins with knowing how to get to Vera. Often tourists come from the northeast of Spain, passing through Madrid. From this point, you can take the A-3, being the shortest path due to the presence of tolls, the AP-36 or A-4. The estimated average time is 5 hours to Vera.
Another option is to leave from the northeast, starting from Barcelona. In this case, there are two possible options. On the one hand, take the AP-7 to connect, then choose the A-7 or take the A-23 to finally getting to Vera by the A-7. The first option is much faster and it will take two hours less. Of course, in the first route you will find a toll on the way.
Another possibility is that Badajoz is your starting point. From this town, the road that connects with Vera is the A-92. You can take it right from the start or through the N-432 or A-45. The fastest option is the first since the route includes a toll although having your mind on your apartment rental, the road becomes much more enjoyable.
