Bicycle routes and rentals in Ciudad Real

During the last decade the government of Ciudad Real has decided to promote transportation options that are more ecologically- and user-friendly, and has therefore created a bike path system called Ciudad Real Bici at seven locations around the city. This system also provides economical bicycle rentals for local residents. Tourists who wish to rent bicycles need to go to commercial establishments in order to be outfitted with a bicycle.  Currently there are a number of bicycle rental places geared towards tourists, and they not only rent bicycles, but they also offer guided tours of the city (on mountain bike paths), such as Mbici, Menelli, and Bicicletas P.E.P.E.A.

What to see during your tour in Ciudad Real with a rented minibus with driver

If you want to rent a bus with chauffer for an excursion or trip that originates or terminates in Ciudad Real, we suggest including these stops in your itinerary:

Plaza Mayor (The Main Plaza)

This is the perfect spot for getting some tapas (Spanish snacks or appetizers), going shopping, or getting an ice cream, in which case we recommend Helados Moran, which is without a doubt one of the best ice creameries in the city. Take a walk in the plaza and admire the diverse sculptures and monuments on display.

Ruidera Cascades

This is a very memorable waterfall. When water levels are high, this waterfall is incredible and the sound of the falling water is really spectacular. This beautiful spot is situated in Lagunas de Ruidera Nature Park, on Castilla-La Mancha Avenue. You can take a rental bus to get here in just under an hour. The name “Ruidera” comes from the Spanish word for noisy, ruidoso, which is an apt description of the numerous cascades. This is a must-see for every nature lover.

Toledo Gates (Puerta de Toledo)

This is part of the remains of the wall above the Toledo Highway in downtown which used to surround the city. When it was intact, it was about 4.5 km (2.8 miles) long. This is the only gateway from the ancient wall that is still standing.

Restaurante Hugo

Situated right downtown on Diego de Mazariegos Street, this restaurant is known for its generous servings and delicious daily specials. It’s surrounded by a great variety of businesses, tourism centers, bars, and discotheques that you won’t want to miss.
