Turistica Bus, Bus #1 and Hotel

Am going next week to Cuenca by AVE from Alicante.

Leaving by AVE the following morning.

The #1 bus from the train stations seems to be the line to Plaza Mayor and then the #2 bus to the Cathedral.

Seems there used to be a hop on hop of bus but the websites don't seem to work so maybe there is not one anymore?

There does seems to be a train truistica. It will be hot so we don't want to do lots of climbing.

How is this Train Turistica?

Are we better taking the Train Turistica or just staying on the public lines 1 and 2?

We need to be back at the train station in the morning so would you suggest staying in town and where or it seems there is an airconditioned NH .7 km. Is this near a public bus or turistical tren stop?

I would also like to see the Modern Art museum. We arrive at 2pm. Would you suggest staying near there and would that be closer to Plaza Mayor or the NH?

Any late lunch dinner tips would be great too. Thank you

You may have seen the opening hours of the Modern Art Museum?

www.march.es/arte/cuenca/situacion/?l=2

Look at the route of the tourist train

and times

as you don't have much time in Cuenca I would not stop at the NH hotel but find somewhere in old city area.

For example

Hospederia Seminario Conciliar de San Julián

or

Hotel Convento del Giraldo

even the Parador is just over the pedestrian bridge and convenient.

The route of Line One bus is clearly shown on this

http://www.urbanoscuenca.com/index.aspx

click on MOSTRAR (to show) next to the Line 1.

It goes to Plaza Mayor in old town.

Thank you I saw the hours and thought we'd have to go to the museum in the afternoon hours 4-6 and then maybe do 7pm train truistica or maybe do train turistica when we first arrive and then do the museum after.

The last train seems to be 7pm.

I am having a hard time figuring what stop on the train turistica would be closest to the Museum?

Both Hospederia Seminario Conciliar de San Julián and Hotel Convento Del Giraldo are same price.

Any preference? Would probably want to do breakfast at the hotel as our train is at 9am next morning.

Ideally would like to get from train station to hotel drop things off and get on train if time if not do the 7pm touristic bus.

Alternatively if we do the 10 bonus #1 and #2 bus will we pretty much see what's on the Touristica route?

Any suggestions for dinner or late lunch? Could also pick up supplies at supermarket for lunch. Would prefer spending more time sightseeing than long meals.
