We're looking to spend six months in Spain next year, and think Zaragoza would be a good spot to live. There is me, my wife and two young boys - they'll be four and one by there. In terms of Spanish speaking - I've done two uni-level units but am still very much in the basic category - Kate hasn't studied formally. I'd like to a short course at the uni. Our major questions surrounding getting good, medium term rentals for that period. What are the prices, and are there many furnished places? We were looking at somewhere between the Uni and the Casco Antiguo.... We're not planning on heading across for another year but fun to start planning now! Cheers, Gregor

Now need more info on trains in Spain, I am looking into buying return tickets Zaragoza-Madrid-Zaragoza for 3 OAP ( over 65yrs old) 2 kids and 4 adults.
I have been looking on http://www.renfe.com/EN/viajeros/
But I am unable to ind special fares for OAPs.
I would like to buy the tickets ASAP , so I might bag a bargain.
Any suggestions please.
We're travelling though Zaragoza in a few weeks time. Is it worth a night there as opposed to say Logrono? Would either be very busy? Or will all the residents have gone to the coast!
Hi there, we are moving to Spain in January for six months from Australia with our four young children. The purpose is for me (Brian) to learn Spanish and get the kids used to speaking it. Mum (Lina) is fluent and our children all understand everything in Spanish but speak mainly English.
We would like to live close to Zaragoza but not in the city itself. I will be attending Spanish classes at the University, while the kids go to a local school. We both want to practice our cooking and wine appreciation and possibly do some volunteer work with schools or church.
We had all of Spain to choose from and chose Zaragoza due to its climate between January and June and transport links to Madrid and Barcelona. All we need to find now is find a house to rent in small town or village with community, a winery nearby and a restaurant or two and our plan will be complete. Any advice anyone can offer on any of the above points will be very welcome indeed. Brian
How to get from Canfranc to Zaragoza by bus or train?
Hello I'm visiting Zaragoza on August 15 is there a possibility that would not be buses to Monasterio de Piedra Park since it will be holiday?
I'm staying in Zaragoza for one day in July and the only thing I could find was an entire day trip. One bus leaves Zaragoza in the morning and returns in the evening. Is there anyway to go for a shorter amount of time? Is it possible to hire a driver or something like that?
What is the cheapest way of getting from Airport to the town centre? I am arriving at 22:00 mid April.
I came across this forum in my desperate search for accommodation in Zaragoza. My husband and I are moving there for close to a year from me to study at the University of Zaragoza.
My classes will be from 4 - 8 pm everyday, I am looking for accommodation that will be walking distance to Campus Rio Ebro. I would preferably like to find accommodation before we arrive beginning of next month.
The challenge we are facing is that we can't speak Spanish (my degree program is in English) so the accommodation websites are not making much sense. :-(. Are there are sites in English or possibly estate agents who speak English. I promise to learn the language once there.
Any assistance you can give me will be greatly appreciated.
We are hoping to visit Zaragoza in September,
which is the best way to get to the Monasterio de Piedra Park?
I have looked on the website but am not sure how close the train/buses stop to the park, and how long it would take?
Many thanks katie
We are passing through Zaragoza on our motorbike in september and would like to stop off to see Aljaferia. Is there anywhere we can park the bike?
This year, at the end of June, I'm planning to come to Spain. I'll be arriving in Zaragoza at 3:30pm and I want to go to Pamplona. The last train is leaving Delicias Station at 5:30pm. Let's say it will take me an hour to get out of the airport. my question is: can I get to Delicias in, let's say less than an hour BY BUS?
Hi everyone I am new on the forum and wanted to ask a few questions in the hope to get suggestions and advice. I have been offered a volunteer position teaching English in Zaragoza and wanted to find more about it before deciding so the questions are as follows:
• Is apartment hunting difficult and can you find decent but cheap accommodation for one person? Does anyone know the rent per month in Euros for a studio or one bedroomed place? (Any websites you can signpost me to)
• Is English spoken or understood as I have never been to Spain or tried to speak Spanish.
• Can you meet people easily as I will not know a soul and would like to make friends outside the work environment.
• What is the weather like on all seasons? And what is the cost of living like compared to bigger cities in Spain.
• Are there good supermarkets and shopping centres or foreign brand shops.
• Any advice on what to bring or expect when living in Zaragoza and anything else a newcomer should know.
I would appreciate any suggestions or wisdom you may offer and hope to hear from you soon thanks.
We're going to Zaragoza next January and found out that by coincidence we're there during their fiesta San Valero (Jan 29).
We do find enough explanations why this fiesta is taking placet, but nothing so far on what we can expect of this fiesta...
Does anybody have an idea Would it be open to foreigners (I speak spannish) or is it more something for the locals ?

Tenemos una reserva en el Hotel Hiberus para el Puente de Noviembre. Sabemos que está un poco alejado del centro por lo que agradeceríamos si alguién nos puede informar si hay metro o lineas de bus cercanas al hotel (que nº).
También quisiéramos saber si hay OTA o es fácil encontrar aparcamiento por esa zona ya que el parking del hotel es bastante caro, ¿es segura la zona? Dejaríamos el coche del sabado a lunes que también es festivo.
Gracias. Un saludo.
I will be visiting Zaragoza from 6 to 9 November. & I am looking for guided tour around town. I read somewhere that Zaragoza has volunteering society similar to the one In New York, where native history enthusiast will show you around, but it has to be booked well in advance.
I have been looking for this info on the web, but seems I have been looking in the wrong place as I can not find what I am looking for.
The guided tour I found on offer is 3 hrs and it's cost €115. which I think is bit steep.
Anyone knows such website and where to start looking??
My husband and I and 2 daughters ages 6 and 7 are considering living in Zaragoza for the entire summer (June thru Aug) so we can improve our Spanish and immerse ourselves in a different culture. (We're also considering Santander.) We are wondering which neighborhood(s) in Zaz are best for a family to live in, and whether we'll be able to enjoy the stay despite the heat. We live in Northern California. Any advice? Thanks!
I need info on cheap chain hotels in Spain, specially city of Zaragoza.

I got cheap Ryanair tickets for November & I am taking my 4 yrs old girl with me.
I just need something safe & clean for 4 nights.
I have tried numerous places to find "Mirabal Gorge", I have looked at the parks, cities etc. but can't find where it is exactly. My sister and I would like to go there next year when we go to Zaragosta.
I would like to take this regional train from Zaragoza to Canfranc, but cannot find out much information about it. Does it still run? Does one need advance reservations? If so, where would I book it online? I'm from Canada. I'm not going to be in Spain until Oct 2011..so I'm planning a bit ahead. I'm also going to spend time in Zaragoza before heading back to Barcelona.
The adventure sounds very scenic and historical. Has anyone ever done this?
Thank you for any help and suggestions!!
A family of three (2 adults and a 16 year old) would like to explore Zaragoza in two days. What to do, tapas recommendations, anything you like to tell us about what's great about the city.
Hola a todos!

alguien me podría dar nombres e hoteles?
I'I'd like to attend the Fiestas del Pilar at its peak, but I'll be touring by car, and it seems a bad time to try to book a reasonably priced hotel and bring a car into the core of the city. Can anyone recommend someplace to stay nearby (even if several km), on any train line, with easy and frequent access into Zaragoza? Thanks.
1. Has anyone purchased and used the Zaragoza Card (24 hour)? Was it worth it?
2. What are your "Hidden Gem" finds and why?
3. Where are your "Must Eat" restaurants & bars? Why? What's the best dish?
I'm trying to decide where to stay for the evening while in Zaragoza. I would like to be centrally located near the tourist sites, restaurants and all transportation. If anyone is familiar with these areas, I would appreciate your unbiased opinion to help me select which area is best for my short stay.
