Moving around Barcelona: metro, bus and more

Moving around Barcelona: metro, bus and more

MOVING AROUND BARCELONA AREA

– To move around Barcelona area, the best way is to use the 10 tickets travel card, called T10 1-2-3-4-5 zones (1 zone is just Barcelona city, 2 zones allows you to reach other cities around, like Sant Cugat. Depending on the city, check how many zones you need to pay for).
– For intensive travelling into Barcelona, you can get a Barcelona Transport Card, zone 1, valid for Barcelona Metro, Transports Metropolitans de Barcelona buses, Ferrocarrils de la Generalitat de Catalunya urban services, Zone 1 Renfe Rodalies and tramway Tram.
– Prices would be (subjected to be changed at any time):
o 2-days, 13.40 EUR
o 3-days, 19.20 EUR
o 4-days, 24.40 EUR
o 5-days, 29.00 EUR

– Cards are valid per day, not per 24-hour period. Not valid for night buses. Not valid for Barcelona Bus Turistic, Teleferic de Montjuic (aerial cableway), Tramvia Blau (cable car), blue tram, or Daily; 6 AM–midnight Tibidabo funicular.
– Buses are useful too, but more complicated to be used, comparing to metro. However, you have 2 kind of buses different from others: Nit Bus (Night Bus) and Bus Turistic (Tourism Bus).
– Nit Bus is useful at nights, when metro is closed and the only alternatives you have is walking or taxis.
– Bus Turistic are normally private ones, 2 levels, with multilingual explanations and not a bad idea to catch a glimpse of what is Barcelona.
– Taxis, always powdercoated on yellow and black colours mixed, are not really expensive, specially if you are a group of 3-4 people.

Arriving to Barcelona: how to go downtown from airport?

Arriving to Barcelona: how to go downtown from airport?

People coming to Barcelona by airplane are stressed because they do not really know how to go from airport to downtown Barcelona.

Downtown Barcelona is called Plaça Catalunya.

Barcelona airport (there is only one airport in Barcelona) is called Barcelona – El Prat.

Best option, if you are 3-4 people is to catch a taxi (they are powdercoated in yellow and black colours) and ask to go to your final destination or eventually to Plaça Catalunya.

Taxi would cost you around 35 EUR one way.

Would you like to do it cheaply, you have buses and train going downtown. Once downtown you will need to catch the metro or another bus to your final destination.

With luggages and/or children and/or not much time, taxi is still the best solution to start well your stay in vibrant Barcelona.

The bus going from/to downtown aurport is called Aerobus and it costs around 5.75 EUR per person.

Train’s company is called RENFE and you will need around 25 minutes to be downtown, plus the waiting time.

Once in Barcelona, you have FGC and Metro offering metro services.

Would you be in our apartment, the closest stops are FGC Gracia and Metro Fontana, line 3 (green).

Do you need more help? Just ask us and welcome to Barcelona.
